Anticipation for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has reached a fever pitch with a month out. Now the new trailer has been released and finally confirmed some speculation.

Following Boseman’s untimely death, plans for the sequel changed with Marvel Studios announcing that the role of Black Panther/King T’Challa will not be recast. It’s confirmed in the trailer that the character has indeed passed on. The how and why is unknown currently.

The new trailer provides a closer look at Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, who appears to be one of the main points of conflict in Marvel’s return to Wakanda. Beyond is the sequel to one of the MCU’s biggest hits, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever also has an impressive cast stacked in its favor. 

It appears that the trailer begins during a funeral. We will have to see how they write this story, but it seems that Chadwick Boseman’s character, T’Challa, might have passed on in the interim period between films.

Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett are reprising their roles from previous MCU entries. Ryan Coogler will also be returning to direct the sequel. However, Daniel Kaluuya, who played W’Kabi, will not be returning for the sophomore installment.

The trailer made certain to honor Boseman and the character’s memory and tease who the new Black Panther will be. It should be a great film.
