Marvel Studios released Wednesday new footage from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, the highly anticipated sequel to the Oscar-winning blockbuster “Black Panther”.
Filmmaker Ryan Coogler directed the sequel from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.
The movie features Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Dominique Thorne, Florence Kasumba, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett.
The sequel follows the leaders of Wakanda fight to protect their nation in the wake of King T'Challa's death.
The footage showed Namor inquiring about whether Wakanda is an enemy or an ally as well as gave a taste of the upcoming battle between the Talocan and Wakanda.
The first part of “Black Panther” was a cultural sensation when it opened in February 2018. It shattered the pernicious Hollywood myth that movies with a predominantly Black cast could not be commercially viable internationally.
The movie was a massive global hit at the box office, earning $700.4 million domestic, the highest-grossing movie at the domestic box office, and $1.34 billion worldwide, second only to "Avengers: Infinity War" ($2.04 billion) that year.
Ideas for a sequel began after the release of the first part in February 2018.
Marvel Studios officially confirmed the sequel's development in mid-2019.
However, plans for the project changed in August 2020 following the death of "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman from colon cancer, with Marvel choosing not to recast his role of T'Challa.
"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" premieres on November 11.
