In celebration of Black Panther Wakanda Forever, Marvel has released some brand new character posters. The upcoming film, which will wrap up the events of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will be released in theatres in the month of November.
The sequel’s director, Ryan Coogler, is back and will be joined by previous cast members. Dominique Thorne will play Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Tenoch Huerta will play Namor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel decided not to recast Chadwick Boseman’s character T’Challa following the actor’s terrible death in 2020, as was announced. The Black Panther sequel will pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman’s memory and center on how the citizens of Wakanda are dealing with the effects of T’Challa’s death. As a result, the legacy of T’Challa will be continued by a new Black Panther.
The identity of the new Black Panther has been kept a closely guarded secret by Marvel, despite the fact that the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is less than a month away. Promotion, on the other hand, has primarily focused on characters who have already been revealed. Therefore, we will learn the release date of Black Panther Wakanda Forever as well as the cast in this article.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever Official Release Date
Following the postponement that occurred in October 2021, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now be released in theatres on November 11th, 2022.
This represents a shift of four months from July 2022, and the sequel will now take the place of The Marvels, which will now be released in July 2023 rather than its initial date of July 2022. Although nothing has been decided for certain, we are hoping that this will be the final change made to the movie.
Although filming began in June 2021, there was a break from November 2021 to January 2022, as was already mentioned. However, production was restarted in January of 2022, and filming was completed in March of 2022, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that it will be ready for release in November.

What Is The Storyline Behind Black Panther Wakanda Forever?
Since it is now absolutely certain that there will not be a replacement actor cast in the character of T’Challa, the primary focus of the sequel will need to shift, and all that we can officially confirm is that it will continue to investigate the world of Wakanda and beyond.
Along with the very first trailer, we were also given the very first official summary of the story. After King T’Challa’s death, “Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje strive to safeguard their country from interfering world forces,” it reads.
Early plot information published in Production Weekly led to speculation that the film Wakanda Forever might contain Namor, a villain with ties to the sea. This speculation was later validated.
The information explains that “both Wakanda and Atlantis are hidden civilizations with advanced technology and improved militaristic powers that choose to segregate themselves from the rest of the world for their own sake, and in a way, out of fear.”
Since Kevin Feige had given hints that he planned to delve deeper into the history of Wakanda in the sequel, we knew that we may anticipate seeing some historical flashbacks that would explain how Wakanda evolved into the nation that we saw in the first film.
Only time will tell the answer to the question that is on everyone’s mind right now, which is “who will be stepping into the Black Panther armor?” Shuri is thought to be the most likely contender to take the helm, according to everyone’s speculation.
The most recent trailer does, however, provide us with a complete first look at the new Black Panther. The new Black Panther makes their entrance toward the end of the trailer by spectacularly descending from the ceiling. Still, no official confirmation of who is involved in the lawsuit has been made. Hopefully, this won’t be spoiled and won’t be disclosed until the film is released.
