Black Panther 2 Release Date: is Shuri Black Panther in Wakanda Forever?

Black Panther 2 will be released in theatres later this year, and we now have the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel.

The poignant teaser debuted at Comic-Con on July 23 during Marvel’s epic presentation and announced that T’Challa’s death would be a part of the storyline, following Chadwick Boseman’s terrible demise in August 2020.

The highly anticipated MCU sequel began production in January 2022, was delayed for another week owing to Covid, and was completed in March 2022. The hiatus from November 2021 to January 2022 was intended to give Letitia Wright time to recover from an on-set injury.

The sequel’s title, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was confirmed in May 2021. Following a couple of delays to its original May 2022 release date, the sequel is now planned to enter theatres in November 2022, and everything appears to be on track for that.

Everyone involved in the production was determined to pay honor to Boseman. “We honored him by devoting ourselves to the story he began, the legacy he established with this franchise,” Wright stated in May 2022.

When Will Black Panther 2: Black Panther Wakanda Forever Be Released?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now be released in theatres on November 11, 2022, following the delay in October 2021.

The sequel now airs in July 2023, replacing The Marvels, which was originally scheduled for July 2022. This is a four-month delay. We hope that this will be the final shift for the film, but nothing is definite at this point.

Although filming began in June 2021, there was a break from November 2021 to January 2022, as was already indicated. However, filming ended in March 2022, and production began again in January 2022, so perhaps it will be released in November.

We’re not sure yet. Marvel has recently taken a page from Netflix’s book, releasing previews for its upcoming movies and Disney Plus episodes much closer to their release dates. The first teaser for Thor 4 didn’t emerge until April 18, less than three months before the film’s release date. Meanwhile, Ms. Marvel’s trailer debuted on March 15 – less than three months before it was re-released on Disney Plus.

If this becomes a typical occurrence for Marvel, we won’t see the teaser for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever until early August. We’d be surprised if a teaser isn’t shown during Marvel Studios’ panel in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con. That might be any time between July 21 and 24, and if one is released, we expect it to be available online soon after.

D23 Expo is the only other in-person event where the Black Panthers 2 video might be displayed. That doesn’t happen until September, which is a little late in the day to reveal the film’s first teaser.

Our best guess? A teaser for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released during Comic-Con, followed by a full trailer at D23 Expo. We don’t have any insider information, but if both are right, you heard it here first.

For what it’s worth, CinemaCon guests saw some movie footage back in April. The brief sizzle reel showed a shot of Nakia, Okoye and Shuri taking center stage for an upcoming battle, as reported by Fandango’s Erik Davis(opens in new tab). Given what we discussed in our cast and plot sections, we believe the fight will be between Wakanda and – well, you’ll know who we’re talking about if you read either of those areas.

Black Panther 2 cast: Who’s Back for Wakanda Forever?

It has been announced that the sequel won’t recast the part of T’Challa to preserve Chadwick Boseman’s legacy. Also thankfully, there are no plans to employ a “digital duplicate” in the follow-up.

Victoria Alonso, EVP of Marvel Studios, stated that there is only one Chadwick and he is not present.
Unfortunately, our king has passed away in real life as well as in fiction. We are taking some time to consider how we can honor this chapter of what has occurred to us that was so unexpected, sad, and truly dreadful.

Kevin Feige also said “A location to further explore with characters and many subcultures is Wakanda. This has always been and initially was, the main subject of the following tale. We won’t be using CG Chadwick, and T’Challa won’t be recast either.”

Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, and Danny Sapani all return as Shuri, Nakia, M’Baku, Okoye, Ramonda, and M’Kathu in the sequel.

Duke is supposedly going to have an “increased role” in the sequel, but Marvel has yet to confirm the allegations, while Narcos: Mexico star Tenoch Huerta is set to play one of the film’s villains, confirmed to be Namor.

It’s unknown whether Daniel Kaluuya will reprise his role as W’Kabi, but Martin Freeman will reprise his role as CIA agent Everett Ross. Sapani recently previewed a “simply incredible” filming experience, raising expectations for the finished work.

Will Michael B. Jordan reprise his role as Killmonger? Given that Killmonger was murdered off in the first film, it’s doubtful, but stranger things have happened.

Jordan played Killmonger in an alternate reality in a reprise of his What If? character. But when questioned in January 2022 about a potential MCU comeback, he remained guarded about the idea.

He explained, “It’s a character in a world that I adore so much. “The future? Marvel, as we all know, has its plans, goals, and ideas about how things will turn out.”

I May Destroy You actress Michaela Coel, whose part has not yet been revealed, and If Beale Street Could Talk star Dominique Thorne, who plays Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, are new additions to the cast.

Could the arrival of Riri result in a Spider-Man crossover with MJ played by Zendaya and Ned by Jacob Batalon heading to MIT after No Way Home? It’s where Riri is in the comics.

What is the Plot of Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever?

The sequel’s focus will have to change now that it is certain that T’Challa won’t be recast, and the only thing we are certain of with certainty is that it will continue to explore Wakanda and its surroundings.

We also received the first official plot summary with the first trailer. After King T’Challa’s death, “Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje strive to safeguard their country from interfering world forces,” it says.

“The heroes must unite with the aid of War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross and establish a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda as the Wakandans struggle to embrace their next chapter.”

Namor, an aquatic villain, had previously been reported to be in Wakanda Forever owing to early story insights from Production Weekly.

The information stated that Wakanda and Atlantis were both secretive civilizations with cutting-edge technology and enhanced military might that decided to isolate themselves from the rest of the world for their safety—and perhaps even out of fear.

We may anticipate more historical flashbacks to explain how Wakanda came to be the place we saw in the first movie as Kevin Feige had previously mentioned that he planned to explore more Wakandan history in the sequel.

“When T’Challa consumes the herb again toward the end of the film, he runs into his father and says, “Hey, man. I think we made a mistake and I want to fix it “He spoke to Entertainment Weekly in March of this year.

“The ancestors gather behind T’Chaka at that precise moment. In jest, we would say, “I want to see… what’s their story?” What story is that? Who was the first king of Wakanda, Bashenga? Who is the third person to the left of T’Chaka? What happened to them in 1938 in Wakanda? That’d be awesome.”

Can Angela Bassett, however, provide any story details?

The celebrity told Cinema Blend, “Not one single thing.” “A sequel to Black Panther will be released in November. And it’ll be fantastic. Ryan Coogler, our director, is the ideal leader and writer. It will be incredible. It will surpass #1.”

Martin Freeman is also unable to provide specifics, but he does offer a fascinating viewpoint on how the script (tragically) developed. He told Collider, “If my recollection serves, the script had gone in just before Chadwick died.

When Chadwick passed away while they were still working on the script, [I] sort of instantly thought, “Oh, okay, I could picture a world where there is no Black Panther then, because how can you have a Black Panther without Black Panther?”

So, I’m still unsure of how that will appear. And no, it was evident that doing it without Chad would have been a bad idea before he passed away. It would’ve been absurd. The fact that he isn’t here is still quite unusual and shocking.

Where Will Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Fit Into the MCU Timeline?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be the 30th installment in the most popular film franchise of all time, assuming that Marvel’s release schedule doesn’t change again.

So where does the MCU timeline for Black Panther 2 fit? Although it’s unclear when it will happen, we assume it will happen after the conclusion of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Considering that Sam Wilson’s new Captain America costume was made utilizing the advanced technology of the African nation of Wakanda, there was a substantial Wakandan influence on the Disney Plus program. Anthony Mackie may appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as the replacement for Captain America, according to speculations.

In an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah(opens in new tab), Mackie made a hint that he will begin a four-month training regimen in April 2021 to play Wilson once more. The celebrity added to Entertainment Tonight(opens in new tab) that she has a Wakanda visa and is free to visit the country whenever she pleases. I am eligible to travel to Wakanda because I have a passport, a visa, and the necessary vaccinations. We’re curious.

There are some things we do know, even if we don’t know where Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will fit on Marvel’s revered timeline because things have gotten more complicated since Avengers: Endgame.

Black Panther 2 will introduce Ironheart’s MCU show, to start with. Anthony Ramos, another Ironheart actor, claims that director Ryan Coogler is involved with the project in some form (In The Heights). That also seems very possible given Ironheart’s part in the upcoming Black Panther movie.

In addition, Coogler is creating a Wakanda TV spin-off for Disney’s streaming service, and according to Charles Murphy(opens in new tab), Black Panther 2 will also usher in a Namor-led series. But it’s unclear if this would be a movie or a TV show.

So, for the time being, Marvel’s Black Panther franchise has a promising future. The superhero’s future casting and if a third film will be released are also up in the air. Whatever happens, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is coming, and we know it will be a movie befitting of the man and performer Chadwick Boseman was.
