Well, the next big Marvel adventure is getting ready to roll. Here is the full trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The Kingdom without a King prepares for war coming from beneath the waves, as the MCU introduces Namor: The Sub-Mariner, this time from an ancient Aztec culture rather than Greek mythology, and confirmed as one of the first mutants in the Marvel Universe.
Ryan Coogler returns to direct the sequel, which will introduce RiRi Williams (Dominique Thorne) alongside Namor. The movie will see Wakanda as a target.
After the sad death of the original Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman, the entire approach for this movie had to be re-thought with producers deciding not to recast the role and instead acknowledge the passing of his character with the actor.
The first movie was a box-office phenomenon with a huge take, driven by it being successfully pitched as a cultural event.
Organizations such as the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute named Black Panther as one of the top ten films of 2018. It grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide and broke numerous box office records, becoming the highest-grossing film directed by a Black filmmaker, the ninth-highest-grossing film of all time, the third-highest-grossing film in the U.S. and Canada, and the second-highest-grossing film of 2018.
The film was nominated for seven awards at the 91st Academy Awards, winning three, and received numerous other accolades. Black Panther is the first superhero film to receive a Best Picture nomination, and the first MCU film to win several categories.
Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, and Winston Duke star in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which is set for release in cinemas on November 11th.
A television series set in Wakanda is also in development for Disney+.
