There’s no doubt that Black Panther was lightning in a bottle for both Disney and Marvel Studios. Directed by the ever-so-talented Ryan Coogler, the movie became a worldwide sensation! Audiences everywhere fell in love with characters like Okoye or Nakia, the land of Wakanda, and the outstanding soundtrack. While the film did go on to win 3 Academy Awards, a sequel was fast-tracked. Everything seemed to fall right into place, but unfortunately, tragedy struck. The devastating passing of Chadwick Boseman left a huge scar on the comic book community. Knowing that Black Panther was one of Boseman’s most iconic roles, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has stated that the character will not be re-cast. Though some fans believe T’Challa’s story arc should continue, Coogler is making sure to honor what Boseman left behind which is sure to be no easy task.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever won’t feel the same without Boseman in the lead, but leaked promo art has showcased a few new faces that are set to enter the foray of the MCU. With today being the big return of the Marvel Studios Hall H panel, the movie’s first teaser trailer has made its way online giving a taste of what’s to come!
