Previously forgotten, Wakanda is once again bubbling in memories with the recent announcement that Black Panther 2 is coming to screens soon.
Of course, given the popularity of the previous Black Panther offering, excitement is currently building over what’s next in line for viewers, a new iteration of the Black Panther Universe and the ever-bubbly world of Wakanda.
Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) is intended to be a sequel to a flick of similar title, with Ryan Coogler as director. The upcoming superhero flick, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney, is based on Black Panther from Marvel Comics.
The previous Black Panther flick had a cast of many notables. Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) continues in the same tradition, which means viewers should look forward to great action from faces they are conversant with.
Of course, Chadwick Boseman wouldn’t be a part of the Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever)
Edition, having succumbed to cancer in August 2020. And although there’s no clue yet who might replace him, viewers should look out for the following cast members whose roles have already been vetted. These peeps are mostly returning cast members:
Angela Bassett (as Queen Ramonda), Letitia Wright (as Shuri), Winston Duke (as M’Baku), Danai Gurira (as Okoye), Lupita Nyong’o (as Nakia), Michaela Coel (as Aneka), Martin Freeman (as Everett Ross), Tenoch Huerta (as Namor), and Dominique Thorne (as Riri Williams/ Ironheart).
The list is by no means comprehensive.
Theme And Specific Characters
It’s almost traditional for themes about an imminent flick to be shared with the audience without giving deep clues not to ruin the suspense. That’s the case with Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever).
The upcoming flick interrogates the conflict between the Wakandans and a kingdom that producers have teased all along but have not given deep clues about, Atlantis.
Also, Riri Williamson’s fans should be excited to know that she’s part of Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) as Ironheart.
Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) has “Move” as the official soundtrack. Credits for the soundtrack go to the Nigerian-British producer Richard Olowaranti Mbu Isong (P2J), Temilade Openiyi (Tems), Richard Isona, Ariowa Irosogie, Denisia Blu June Andrews, Ronald Banfu Banfu and Brittany Coney.
For clarity, the teaser trailer is set to Tems’s rendition of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry.” Naturally, her appearance on the soundtrack is of particular interest to her compatriots, and they have been hailing her for the achievement.
The Black Panther Character
The previous instalment of Black Panther has Chadwick Boseman playing the eponymous role. Unfortunately, Boseman died from cancer two years ago. Though a replacement has not been announced for the character, it’s expected someone else will take on the role on the official release of Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever).
Trailers are more like markers, giving directions on what might follow in a film. And for almost every film worth the name, there’s a trailer out there.
The trailer for Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) was released exactly two days ago, on 23 July, at the San Diego Comic-Con.
The trailer indicates that the Wakandans will face extreme threats from the underwater kingdom of Atlantis following the death of King T’Challa.
You’re not alone if you’re curious about Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) release date. We are in the dying hours of July, which means fans wouldn’t have to wait too long to see what Marvel Studios has created away from the spotlight.
Black Panther 2 (Wakanda Forever) will officially hit theatres on 11 November. 2022.
The original Black Panther was a big hit on release years back. Given the massive interest the sequel is generating, it wouldn’t be surprising if it becomes another blockbuster.
