At Comic-Con this weekend, the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was revealed to the general public. If this trailer gives pride of place to female characters, no image in sight of the successor to Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020. According to the production team, this information will only be available when the film is released, on November 9. .
As you might expect, San Diego Comic-Con gave pride of place to spectacular trailers. Disney+ has notably revealed the new adventures of Daredevil, as well as a second trailer for its She-Hulk series. Marvel movies have also been treated to some tantalizing announcements, including the sequel to Black Panther, one of the MCU’s most beloved films to date.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has therefore revealed its first images to the general public this weekend. Following the death of King T’Challa, his mother Ramonda became queen of the Kingdom, now threatened by other world powers. This first trailer therefore gives pride of place to female characters, including Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Ayo (Florence Kasumba).
Who will be the next Black Panther?
However, the trailer did not answer the question that is on everyone’s lips: who will succeed Chadwick Boseman, the interpreter of Black Panther who died in 2020? To get this information, we will have to wait a little longer. Indeed, Letitia Wright, the actress playing Shuri, told MTV that the name of the new Black Panther will not be revealed until the film’s release on November 9.

We remember in particular that in December 2020, Kevin Feige, CEO of Marvel Studios, announced that the role of Chadwick Boseman would not be reassigned, explaining that “His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic”. So it remains to be seen how Marvel has planned to handle the transition. “He’s going to new places in Wakanda where we’ve never been before, but also to other corners of the MCU”teased Ryan Coogler, director of the film.
