New Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Trailer Hints At How The Film Will Honour Chadwick Boseman’s Character
There is now a trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The new trailer, which opens with a somber rendition of “No Woman No Cry,” as Shuri (Letitia Wright) and Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) lament their dead king, makes it clear that Boseman and T’Challa are gone. The song changes to Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” as the video continues, and the last image is of a new Black Panther—is it Shuri or someone else? The face is obscured as they unwrap their claws. The cast and director Ryan Coogler unveiled the grand montage on Saturday at the Marvel Studios Hall H panel during San Diego Comic-Con.

The actor Chadwick Boseman, who originated the role of T’Challa and contributed to the success of the first Black Panther movie, will pass away in 2020. Before releasing the trailer, Coogler wasted no time addressing this subject.
Coogler recalled on stage, “Five years ago, I sat about right there, and we premiered the first footage from Black Panther. “The late great Chadwick Boseman, who played our T’Challa, was seated directly to my left. When we played the footage for the cast—including Chad—he was right next to me, jumping up and down with excitement as he grabbed my shoulders. Chad had these enormous hands if you had the chance to meet him in person.”
Coogler went on, “I can assure you that I currently feel his hand on me. Although Chad isn’t physically with us anymore, his spirit, his passion, his brilliance, his pride, his culture, and the impact he had on this industry will live on forever. This movie is a product of our love for Chadwick.”

The panel also confirmed the long-running rumors that actor Tenoch Huerta’s character Namor the Sub-Mariner will appear in the movie. In the 2013 New Avengers comic by writer Jonathan Hickman, Namor, the ruler of the state of Atlantis, and T’Challa engaged in an intriguing, beloved rivalry. As the trailer ends with Atlantean warriors fighting the Dora Milaje, it appears that he will still be Wakanda’s rival in this movie.
“I’m over the moon to be here. It’s a privilege. I’ll say something quickly about inclusion “On the stage, Huerta said. “I’m from the neighborhood. Seriously. And I’m here because of inclusion. Without inclusion, I wouldn’t be here. Many young people in the neighborhood are watching us and fantasizing about being here. They’re going to succeed, too.”
The trailer features other MCU newcomers besides Namor. Shuri can be seen introducing herself to Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams, a fellow young genius who will soon star in her own Ironheart series on Disney+.
