The trailer for Marvel's sequel to "Black Panther" dropped at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, with some on social media speculating the film will be one of the franchise's most emotional.
The trailer for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” reveals the return of characters like Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke) and Nakia (Lupia Nyong’o).
The trailer, set to a remixed version of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ "No Woman, No Cry," teases the addition of old Marvel characters, like Namor the Sub-Mariner (Tenoch Huerta).
The trailer acknowledges the passing of Wakanda's king while looking toward the birth of new life and a new chapter for the Marvel universe's most advanced nation.
Ryan Coogler returned to direct the "Black Panther" sequel, which also suffered its own setbacks.
Wright was injured on set during a stunt involving a rig, according to The Hollywood Reporter, temporarily shutting down production. Production resumed early this year, and the film is expected to be released in November.
Coogler's first "Black Panther" grossed $1.3 billion and brought home three Oscars.
Marvel also announced the newest installment in the “Captain America" franchise, "Captain America: New World Order,” which is scheduled for release on May 3, 2024. It also plans to release “Thunderbolts,” on July 26, 2024.
Fans can expect a new "Fantastic Four" film in November 2024 and two new entries in the "Avengers" franchise — “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers: Secret Wars.”
"Kang" is scheduled for May 2025, and "Secret Wars" is planned for November 2025.
