The official trailer for Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has arrived. The long-awaited follow-up to the original Black Panther — a 2018 Ryan Coogler-directed blockbuster starring Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan and soundtracked in part by Kendrick Lamar — is scheduled for a November 11 release in theaters nationwide. It will star returning cast members such as Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Winston Duke, as well as Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, who plays a new character introduced in the trailer as Namor, “the Feathered Serpent God” who rules the underwater kingdom of Talocan.
Wakanda Forever is the 30th film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking place after the death of King T’Challa, the title character portrayed by Boseman in the first film. Boseman died in August 2020 of complications from colon cancer, and the Black Panther franchise decided not to replace him in the role.
