A Final “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” Teaser Unleashes Longest Look at New Black Panther

The wait is over. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is finally here. And to celebrate the film’s release (it opens in thousands of theaters, here and abroad, on November 11), Marvel Studios has unleashed one final teaser. This last glimpse offers the longest look yet at the new Black Panther, whoever she may be (we have our suspicions).

You know the basics by now. Co-writer and director Ryan Coogler and his cast and crew had to somehow craft a sequel without their star, Chadwick Boseman, who passed away tragically in August 2020. Coogler and his co-writer, Joe Robert Cole, rewrote the script entirely, scrapping what was supposed to be an exploration of T’Challa (Boseman)’s growing maturation as a leader and instead reframing the story from an entirely new perspective, centered on the loss of T’Challa and a looming new threat in the form of Tenoch Huerta’s Namor.

The position of Black Panther within Wakanda society is one that’s passed from hero to hero, so while Boseman’s T’Challa was not recast, Wakanda Forever will introduce a new Black Panther. The final teaser gives us a thrilling look at whoever she is, arriving at the 0:22 second mark as she leaps into battle.

It will be a bittersweet moment for the millions of fans of both Chadwick Boseman and the Black Panther franchise when they tuck into their seats tomorrow. The wait is finally over, but more tears are likely to come.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens wide on November 11.
