Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever | Official Teaser

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Release date: November 11, 2022 (In theaters)

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther sequel had to overcome the tragic passing of star Chadwick Boseman (along with some other delays), but the first glimpse we got at San Diego Comic-Con strongly suggests the film will be a fitting tribute to the late star, as well as a powerful film well worth the wait. The cast includes Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, and more—including a brand new Marvel hero: Dominique Thorne, who will make her debut as Riri Williams in the movie ahead of her Disney+ series, Ironheart.
