The first trailer of Black Panther’s sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is here, and true to its teaser, the longer clip also pays a haunting homage to the late Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular role in the original film.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever also teases a new conflict which with the absence of T’Challa, the kingdom will have to deal with on its own. The new enemy, who is mostly been pitched as some sort of antihero, is Tenoch Huerta’s Namor.
We are further given a glimpse of who the new leader will be in the absence of Chadwick Boseman, as a voiceover informs that only the broken-hearted people make the greatest of leaders, cut to, we see Shuri’s mournful face as she pays tribute to her late brother. Towards the end, a new Black Panther in a new suit does its own superhero landing.
