For all those who were hovering the social media timelines waiting to see what would drop at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, no need to wait any longer!! Marvel Studios officially dropped this teaser trailer for the much anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever!! I could not just drop this one in the regular listing of new trailers, this needed a post ALL BY ITSELF!!
From the opening moment, with a remix version of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” and Nakia standing on Wakandan shores deep in thought. The only lines spoken are from Queen Ramonda (played by Angela Bassett) and they are full of emotions. It is literally like a musical motion picture, with featured moments. We see several return characters including Okoye and Ayo, Shuri (with a new haircut…I like!!), Nakia, M’baku, Agent Ross and some new faces one particular that I am siked about RiRi Williams/Ironheart (played by Dominique Thorne), Aneka (played by Michaela Coel), and a first glimpse at the film’s villain, Namor (played by Tenoch Huerta). What this teaser trailer does well is project the future not just of one the MCU’s most advanced nation, but of the Black/African diaspora!!
And this trailer would not be complete without a shout out to T’Challa!!
Literal chills up and down my spine!! Patiently waiting….But Sooooo Ready for this one!!
