Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: At CinemaCon, the first clip from the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had been released. The sequel, which reunites director Ryan Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole from the first film, will be without star Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020.
It's not unexpected that the first clip from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever focuses on Nakia, Okoye, and Shuri. In light of T'Challa's absence, they will be three of the sequel's primary protagonists, with numerous formerly minor characters being elevated in their roles.
Marvel Studios has debuted the first footage from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as part of Disney's CinemaCon 2022 presentation, which Screen Rant is attending. The clip included an image of Shuri, Okoye, and Nakia fighting together on the front lines of a battle.
The fact that Nakia, Okoye, and Shuri are leading Wakanda's army reflects each of their important responsibilities in the country. During Black Panther 2, Shuri is widely speculated to be Wakanda's new ruler and the next person to don the Black Panther suit. It's possible she'll don the suit in the combat shown in this footage, but Marvel cut it out.
The first Black Panther was a box financial and critical smash hit. It was a game-changer not only for the MCU but also for Hollywood, with a primarily African-American cast.
