‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Trailer: The Wakandans Show Who They Are As The Threat Of Namor Looms

Next month Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives, and honestly, I don’t know how people are going to react to it. There has been a split around what Marvel should’ve done to address the passing of star Chadwick Boseman. Do you recast the role of T’Challa? Or do you address it within the story somehow? Marvel and director Ryan Coogler chose the latter, making this the first superhero movie that will come with a heavy amount of grief attached to it.

But that grief will be something we can all work through together, and that seems to be the point of the sequel, which will introduce a new Black Panther (you probably already know who it is) as well as Namor the Submariner, played by Tenoch Huerta.

Marvel has debuted a new poster and trailer for the film, which shows more of the Wakandan kingdom mourning their fallen king, while the threat of Namor looms. Here’s the official synopsis:

In Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens on November 11th!
