‘Wakanda Forever:’ ‘Black Panther’ Makes The Ultimate Return

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever tickets are now on sale, and we can’t contain our  excitement. After 4 years since the first film, the Wakanda kingdom finally returns to band together and save the day. Here is everything you need to know about Wakanda Forever, hitting theaters November 11! 


Wakanda Forever welcomes new and old heroes 

Following T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) death, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (the all female warrior unit) must embrace a new chapter as evil forces threaten their existence. The Wakanda kingdom will have to band together with undercover spy Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman). Dominique Thorne, Florence Kasumba, and Michaela Coel also star.

Wakanda is facing a new villain, the mutant sea-dwelling serpent god of the underwater nation Talocan, named Namor (Tenoch Huerta). Fighting against superheroes for years, he is ready to take down Wakanda. 

Now, a new Black Panther must arise. In the newest trailer, we discover that T’Challa’s sister will take over the new role as the strong Black Panther.

Ryan Coogler, who directed and wrote the 1st film, directed this sequel as well. 

How will the film address Chadwick Boseman’s death? 

When news erupted of Chadwick Boseman’s death in 2020 from colon cancer, Disney announced they would not replace him in the Black Panther sequel. 

“Honoring Chadwick Boseman’s legacy & portrayal of T’Challa, @MarvelStudios will not recast the character, but will explore the world of Wakanda & the rich characters introduced in the first film,” the company tweeted to their official account.

Like in real life, Wakanda will be mourning and trying to move forward after the passing of Boseman’s T’Challa. Now that their king is gone, T’Challa’s strong willed sister Shuri will be wearing the Black Panther suit, becoming more of a central figure in this film. In the trailer, we can see T’Challa’s mother Queen Ramonda dealing with the tragedy first hand. 

Danai Gurira spoke with Entertainment Weekly on how the cast and crew wanted to focus on celebrating Chadwick Boseman.

“The most important thing, of course, was honoring our brother, our leader, and our king. That was definitely at the forefront of our minds and our spirits and our hearts. There was this amazing impact that the first Black Panther had, so the need, I think, was to really solidify that these characters and this world have an arc.”

What can audiences expect for Wakanda Forever

From first looks of the film with teasers and trailers, audiences will find a grieving Wakanda interspersed with threats of the underworld. Ryan Coogler had started writing a draft of the film in 2018, but had to shift gears after the death of Boseman

I started to come up with a film that had elements of the film that we had just finished writing,” Coogler explains to Entertainment Weekly, “but also applied the themes that the people who were hurting just as much as me could actually perform and execute and come out on the other side whole.” 

While we’re seeing warriors of Wakanda fight to save Earth and their homeland, we also come across the American prodigy of Tony Stark, Ironheart (Dominique Thorne).

Will Wakanda Forever erupt at the box office? With Black Panther being the 1st superhero film to have a black hero, black director, and majority black cast, the movie grossed more than 1 billion worldwide when it was released in 2018. Variety predicts that as of now, the movie could earn $423.5 million at the box office. We won’t know the gross earnings until after November 11, but Wakanda Forever will surely bring charismatic fans to the theater.
