The footage of the first Panther was one of the many revelations this year at Comic-Con. On Saturday, Marvel brought Comic-Con viewers back to Wakanda to watch the upcoming Black Panther sequel, Black Panther, and viewers got their first look at the highly anticipated film. Marvel released the trailer for the highly anticipated 2018 Oscar-nominated Black Panther sequel on July 23 during the Marvel Comic-Con panel.
Ryan Coogler's first look/trailer for Black Panther 2 was released Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer was unveiled Saturday at Marvel Studios Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con by director Ryan Coogler and the crew. The trailer debuted Saturday night at the end of Marvel Studios' big panel at San Diego Comic-Con, featuring a group of traditional African singers performing to much fanfare for the panel that followed. The trailer ties into Kendrick Lamars' lyrical "We'll be OK," "Okay," weaving between Wakanda's aquatic environment, futuristic technology, and a seemingly crowded funeral in white.
Based on the Ouija cover of Kendrick Lamar's book No Woman, Don't Cry and It's All Right, the video depicts the fictional African nation of Wakanda in mourning, a clear reference to the death of King Challa/Black Panther, originally played by King Boseman Challa/Black. Panther, originally played by Boseman. Marvel Studios understands the meaning of the word "resolved" and the first Black Panther 2 trailer focuses on the pain that Wakanda is going through before ending with an upbeat nod to King Challa's successor. The new trailer brings many familiar Black Panther faces to life as they mourn the death of the King of Wakanda. Writer/director Ryan Coogler, who directed the first Black Panther, then took the stage to discuss the sequel, reflecting on the death of former series star Chadwick Boseman.
As Chadwick Boseman's shadow will inevitably hang over all subsequent Black Panther films, the cast and crew were open to the fact that the next sequel isn't trying to replace the deceased star, but rather believes Boseman will see a new one. the film as a tribute to his legacy. We still don't know how Black Panther 2 will handle the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman (although it won't be digitally recreated), but there's still plenty of news to enjoy as we wait for the movie's release next year. While the exact plot details of Black Panther 2 have yet to be announced, it looks like on our next visit to Wakanda we'll be spending time with a few characters exploring the "mythology" of Wakanda in more detail. A particularly shocking shot in the Black Panther 2 trailer shows Wakanda's throne room devastated by both flames and flooding.
