According to the movie’s synopsis, the characters “must fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.”
“As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda,” the synopsis continues.
Music to accompany the powerful footage first shared during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con begins with a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” and concludes to the tune of Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.”
Lupita Nyong’o’s character appears on screen first, followed by Letitia Wright in a white outfit and later in tearful beach scenes.
The trailer shows T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, as a mural flashes where Queen Ramonda delivers a hearth-touching speech, “I am the queen of the most powerful nation in the world and now my entire family is gone. Have I not given everything?”
Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta makes his acting debut as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation in the movie. In the trailer, a pregnant woman underwater is shown, followed by the baby being born, hinting towards the birth of Namor.
I Might Destroy You’s Michaela Coel is also shown getting ready for battle in the video that was released on Saturday. The next movie also features Dominique Thorne, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livanalli.
The film’s production team told director Ryan Coogler that they “put our love for Chadwick into this film.” The teaser was released at the conclusion of a Marvel mega-panel on Saturday when franchise chief Kevin Feige introduced a number of brand-new blockbuster titles.

In the heartfelt scenes, Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda and her family are seen mourning the passing of Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa. The actor Chadwick Boseman actually passed away in 2020 after a personal battle with cancer, but Marvel decided not to have his part replaced. However, earlier, Wright discussed how Chadwick Boseman impacted Wakanda Forever after his passing, describing the film as an “incredible honor“ for Chadwick Boseman.
It looks like fan art, but this is reportedly a new official poster for the ‘Black Panther’ sequel, featuring Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright and Angela Bassett.

When presenting the clip, Coogler recalled sitting with Boseman at a previous Comic-Con, saying “Chadwick had these huge hands and he was just squeezing down on my shoulders. I felt his hand the rest of the day. “I promise you, I can feel his hand on me right now.”
He added: “Chad’s passion and genius and his culture and the impact he made on this industry will be felt forever.”
“We put our love for Chadwick into this film. “We also put our passion. This film has a ton of action and humour. It’s also a roller coaster of a movie.
“It goes to new places in Wakanda that we’ve never been before but other corners of the MCU.”
Boseman’s co-star Letitia Wright added: “It’s a blessing, we’ve grown so much.
“It’s an honour to bring this movie to you and honour big brother.”
