It goes without saying that as a first, this could be one of the most anticipated projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Black Panther cemented itself as a bonafide phenomenon in blockbuster history. and Wakanda forever It looks like it will further expand the world of its titular hero’s kingdom and expand the impact that the Black Panther has on the world.
honoring Chadwick Boseman
The trailer begins with Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and her daughter Shuri (Letizia Wright) walking the streets of Wakanda They, like the citizens of Wakanda, are dressed in white. Shuri is also shown holding the Black Panther helmet in her hands – signaling the death of her brother T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman). Co-Writer/Director Ryan Coogler was open about how Wakanda forever is meant to pay homage to Boseman, who died two years ago after a battle with cancer, and this scene is an important example of that.
Namor ascends the throne
The burial scenes are interspersed with sequences of Namor (Tenoch Huerta) while observing the walls of his underwater kingdom, Talocan, and his descent to a throne carved out of a shark’s jawbone. “Only the most broken people can make great leaders,” Namor is heard saying in the trailer. It is unclear who he is speaking to, but he may be referring to the difficulties he faced as his mother was from Talocan while his father was human. And since Huerta also confirmed that Namor will keep his mutant status in the MCU, Wakanda forever It looks like it touches on the “hated and feared” status that mutants have in comic book canon.
Namor seeks war against Wakanda
In fact, this fear seems to have reached Wakanda as M’Baku (Winston Duke) discusses how much of a threat the Talocan King poses. “His people don’t call him a general or a king. They call him K’uk’ulkan – the feathered serpent god! Killing him risks eternal war,” he warns his fellow Jabari tribesmen. And it is war that Namor seeks, as one member of the Dora Milaje says: “He comes for the surface world.” Additional images show Talocan warriors swarming around a drilling platform in the middle of the sea, while the Dora Milaje also fights with armed soldiers . But in one of the most alarming images, Namor descends into the throne room of Wakanda – while Ramonda and Shuri are inside! Another scene shows Namor and Ramonda staring coldly at each other.

Namor is also shown using his mutant flight power while attacking Wakanda airships. It finally ends with the reveal of the new Black Panther – and as fans might have guessed, it looks like Shuri is taking over the mantle her brother used to inhabit. Her Black Panther costume features the same markings as the color she wore in the first fight Black Panther, and it features gold detailing and gold claws. “I know what you’re whispering,” Ramonda says in one scene while addressing the United Nations. “‘They have lost their protector. Now is our time to strike.'” With Talocan bringing the fight to Wakanda, it looks like Shuri will don the Black Panther mantle to remind the world that Wakanda is a power is not to be expected.
Who is Ironheart?
Shuri isn’t the only new hero appearing in it Wakanda forever. Other scenes feature Riri Williams (Dominic Dorn), who will take over the mantle of Ironheart.
