New “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” Teaser Offers a Closer Look at the New Black Panther
“Without the Black Panther, Wakanda will fall.” These menacing words, spoken by Namor (Tenoch Huerta), open a new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever teaser and they might be his downfall. This new look offers fresh images from director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming sequel, which carries on the story of the high-tech, highly secretive African nation of Wakanda after the loss of their king, T’Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman), mimicking the real-life loss of Boseman after he passed away tragically, at 43, from colon cancer. One of the challenges Wakanda will face is presumably Namor and his army of Talocan warriors, but what if he’s wrong? What if Wakanda is not without a Black Panther? Or, perhaps more to the point, what if they’re not without a Black Panther for long?
The teaser offers a few new moments, some of them even light. One such sequence comes after M’Baku (Winston Duke) tries to smash his war club over Namor, and the club simply breaks into smithereens. “That can’t be good,” M’Baku says. Another new shot finds newcomer Riri Williams (Dominque Thorne) in her full Ironheart gear, having the time of her life. Thomas is a tech prodigy, not unlike Shuri (Letitia Wright), but she really follows in the mold of Tony Stark, hence creating the most technologically advanced armored suit since Tony Stark’s multiple variations of his Iron Man suits.
But perhaps the thing most people will be keying in on are the new looks at the new Black Panther, the one Namor was practically begging for, who arrives with her claws out and ready to rumble. All the speculation is centered on who she might be, and everyone’s first pick is Shuri. Yet don’t count out Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), another fierce fighter, or Okoye (Dania Gurira), arguably the best fighter in Wakanda. While we won’t know exactly who it is until the film bows, this new teaser gives us our best look at her yet.
Check out the new teaser below. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens on November 11.
