From guessing who will don the suit of Black Panther to looking for clues for future films, it’s a game that MCU fans know all about. The official trailer for Marvel Studios’ upcoming superhero film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released this Monday evening.
The film is produced by Kevin Feige, and Nate Moore and directed by Ryan Coogler. The first Black Panther movie, starring Chadwick Boseman as the lead character, was released in 2018. But after Boseman passed away in the MCU, fans were left wondering who would take over for Boseman as T’challa in the film. However, the MCU purposefully decided to continue the franchise without T’Challa and give more prominence to his sister Shuri.
The movie trailer, which shows the passing of Chadwick Boseman, depicts the late actor’s death by having it also happen to his character T’Challa. Ever since, there has been a tone of buzz surrounding this film, which peaked with the release of its trailer. It has a lot of intriguing, fresh characters and storylines.
The movie trailer opens up with the funeral scene of T’challa’s mural while his likeness looks on. We can also see the young Namor painting a wall. The action-packed feature film travels to the underwater city of Talokan,
Following the series of action scenes in the trailer, we see the dangerous Namor confront Wakanda’s Queen Mother Ramoda as he brings the war to the illustrious nation and the magnificent kingdom is in ruin.
Fans’ reactions to the trailer’s release flooded social media. Many fans have already presumed that the person wearing the cape is T’challa’s sister Shuri, who is played by Letitia Wright. The only thing fans have been waiting for is Shuri posing as the new Black Panther.
The MCU will introduce Ironheart, a.k.a. Riri Williams, in Wakanda Forever. In the comics, she is depicted creating an Iron Man-inspired suit using leftover parts from his armor and items taken from MIT’s lab. She is seen working on a suit using leftover auto parts with Shuri, another brilliant scientist, in the Wakanda Forever trailer.
Some people are also voting for Nakia as the next Black panther, but most guesses point toward Shuri.
