The cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman’s “passion and genius” as the trailer for the sequel was revealed at Comic-Con. The film’s director, Ryan Coogler, said the production team had “put our love for Chadwick into this film”.
The British actor Michaela Coel was confirmed to be joining the cast of the film, and told fans how important the first Black Panther film was to her as it showed a black superhero backed by other black superheroes.
“It goes to new places in Wakanda that we’ve never been before but other corners of the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe].”
Emotional scenes in the trailer show queen Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett, and her family mourning the loss of her son king, T’Challa, played by Boseman, who is depicted in a mural.
