Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Featurette & Posters Tease Emotional Return

With only a month left to go before the theatrical release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Marvel Studios has dropped a brand new featurette and character posters for its long-awaited sequel.

The Wakanda Forever featurette offers a commentary by Ryan Coogler and the cast as they discussed their emotional return to Wakanda and how they’ll honor Chadwick Boseman’s legacy through the film. It also highlights the arrival of Tenoch Huerta’s Namor, who is described as a living god by his people.

Based on the Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will continue to explore the incomparable world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film.

It will see the return of most of its original main cast, including Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Winston Duke as M’Baku, and Florence Kasumba as Ayo. Joining them are franchise newcomers Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico) as Namor, Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You) as Aneka, Mabel Cadena as Namora, and Alex Livinalli as Attuma.

“In the film, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death,” reads the synopsis. “As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.”
