As the early box office figures already predicted, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is preparing to become one of the biggest hits of 2022. The highly anticipated new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is less than a month away from its premiere, which means it’s full steam ahead when it comes to new material to tease fans. Today, Marvel released some character posters that showcase the main and supporting cast in stunning detail.
The vibrant posters make it stand out Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverThe Oscar winner’s stunning costume design Ruth E Carterwhich reflects and reinforces her work in the first film, especially when it comes to the blockbuster’s big bad Namor (Tenoch Huerta) who wears an incredibly detailed animal-like headdress. Namor’s MCU debut was eagerly awaited by fans, who speculated about his arrival on the big screen for years. Similar to the previous antagonist Killmonger (Michael B Jordan) Namor is more of an antihero, which could hint at a possible future side switch, or at least a villain motivation that audiences can relate to on some level.
Also highlighted by the posters is T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) Family: His mother, Queen Ramonda (Angela Basset) and his sister Shuri (Letizia Wright), who is the only one in the group who doesn’t wear a flashy outfit. We still don’t know under what circumstances the film will deal with Tchalla’s character’s fate, and the trailers haven’t specifically said that Shuri will become the new Black Panther, so we could be in for a few surprises Lupita Nyong’o revealed in a recent interview.
Speaking of her, the warrior and activist also gets a poster, as does fellow savage Wakanda fighter M’Baku (Winston Duke) and Okoye (Danai Gurira). Not shown on the posters Dominic Dorn as Riri Williams/Ironheart, who made her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Marvel is revealing as little as possible about the new character, who has only been glimpsed in trailers so far.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the final entry in the studio’s fourth phase. The sequel will be directed by again Ryan Cooglerwho is writing the screenplay JoeRobert Cole. Aside from the actors on the posters, the film also features Martin Freiman, Florence Kasumbaand Michaela Coel.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Premieres in theaters November 11.
