Exclusive: Marvel at Comic-Con: Wakanda Forever trailer unveiled, and more Avengers films


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s trailer was shown at Comic-Con in San Diego to a raucous crowd of excited fans, who yelled their appreciation.


This is the sequel to 2018’s Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, the heroic crime-fighting monarch of Wakanda, a fictional African country with great technological capabilities.

Some members of Boseman’s cast were overcome with emotion as they spoke about how much this new production meant to them and how much they cherished the opportunity to pay tribute to their former co-star.


T’Challa actor Ryan Coogler, returning as director, remarked about how pleased he was to see the initial Black Panther footage at Comic-Con five years ago.

He said, “I can feel his touch on me.”

British actress Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, the Black Panther’s sister, and Lupita Nyong’o, who won an Oscar for her portrayal as an undercover Wakanda spy, also reprise their roles.


Performing African drums and vocals before the act took the stage, a small group of musicians and dancers enthralled the audience.

Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico) has been cast as Namor McKenzie, a.k.a. the Sub-Mariner, in Wakanda Forever, which confirms a long-running casting rumor. The film’s antagonist is Namor, the ruler of the underwater realm of Atlantis, and the trailer suggests a conflict between Wakanda and his people.

In his remarks to the crowd, Huerta expressed his strong feelings on the importance of diversity and inclusion by saying: “Seriously, I’m from the ghetto. As a result of this, I’m able to be here. Many of the youngsters in the neighborhood are admiring us and fantasizing about one day being here. Moreover, they’re going to succeed.” Continuing in Spanish, he expressed his gratitude to me.


A teen scientist who transforms into a superhero (and who will have her own program on Disney+ in 2023), Riri Williams / Ironheart, is played by Dominique Thorne, who previously starred in I May Destroy You.

In addition to becoming the first superhero film to be nominated for an Oscar for best picture, Black Panther was also a cultural milestone for diversity in cinema, taking in over $1 billion at the box office.

Prior to Marvel’s announcement that they will not be recasting the part of T’Challa because of the death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, numerous fans argued that the role should be given to a new actor.


The final frame of the video contains a telltale flash of the Black Panther claws, which has led to rumors that Shuri may suddenly wear the panther costume.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige outlines next three years

When it comes to Marvel, it’s a large universe replete with dozens of characters that the authors try to make more comprehensible by organizing projects into “phases”.

Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, has stated that Phase 4 will culminate with Wakanda Forever, which premieres on November 11.


The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania film cycle will begin on February 17 with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang / Ant-Man, but he teased fans with a glimpse into the future.

Rudd took the stage with Feige and the rest of the cast to answer a question about what his character has been up to recently.

A great laugh broke out when he said, “Scott is fairly proud with himself for his involvement in rescuing the universe.”


Guardians of the Galaxy: ‘What they really do is save each other’

In May, we’ll have the concluding installment of the space saga, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, out. During filming of Iron Man 3 in North Carolina, director James Gunn was overcome with emotion when he remembered pitching the concept a decade ago.

In reality, he replied, people save each other more often than the universe.

“That’s all there is to say about that particular story. A conclusion comes to certain tales, I assert. This does not imply that everyone will perish!”


Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in the film, revealed that the cast had never seen the trailer before – “it’s stunning!” – on the Hall H stage with Gunn.

The Marvels, in which Captain Marvel joins forces with Ms. Marvel and Spectrum, alias Monica Rambeau, continues the romp through Phase 5.

There was no team announcement today, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out who’s in the Thunderbolts.


Two new Avengers movies

In Phase 6, Feige said that The Fantastic Four will appear, with a release date of November 8, 2024, although again, no casting has been announced.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars will wrap out Phase 6 in late 2025.

San Diego Comic-Con is a big pop culture event, where some of the most popular films on record have premiered, and Marvel doesn’t publicize in advance what it plans to address.


In the first half of the year, films like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and Thor: Love and Thunder have been released, as well as television shows like Moon Knight and Miss Marvel.

….and finally: She-Hulk, and Nick Fury’s new series

It’s only August, but the cast of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has already had their moment in the limelight. Jane cousin, The Hulk / Bruce Banner, appears to help her acclimate to her new role as a superhero by tossing rocks and doing yoga.

Secret Invasion will premiere on Disney+ in spring 2023, starring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as the Avengers’ founder. Don Cheadle, Olivia Coleman, Emilia Clarke and Regé from Bridgerton are all in the cast – and we’re guaranteed that it will focus on the intriguing life of Fury. -Jean Page.
