After the 2018 smash hit Black Panther, Marvel is back with the 30th film in its cinematic universe.
That’s right, the highest-grossing superhero film of all time is back for a highly anticipated sequel, and Ryan Coogler is back in the director’s seat.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer:
Fans have finally been treated to this teaser trailer from Marvel and Disney+, which came out on May 10 2022.
When is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever coming out?
It’s been a bumpy road leading up to the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The tragic loss of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman to colon cancer in August 2020 threw off filming altogether.
Then Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s younger sister Shuri, was injured on set, and filming was shut down yet again.
The release date was pushed from May 2022 to July 2022 even before Wright’s injury.
But now we finally know: the Black Panther sequel will come out on 11 November 2022.
Who is in the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?
Following Chadwick Boseman’s death in 2020, the whole franchise was in question. Fans were quick to ask whether T’Challa will be recast, or even digitised.
But Marvel has decided there will be no T’Challa in the second film, but the whole film is said to be dedicated to Boseman’s legacy.
We will see the return of other characters, though: Shuri (Letitia Wright, from Avengers: Infinity War), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman).
Meanwhile, the up-and-coming Dominique Thorne, star of the upcoming eponymous six-part series Ironheart on Disney+, will make her debut in Wakanda.
The critically acclaimed cast is mostly unchanged since the first film:
- Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia
- Danai Gurira as Okoye
- Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross
- Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi
- Letitia Wright as Shuri
- Winston Duke as M'Baku
- Angela Bassett as Ramonda
- Dominique Thorne as Ironheart
