Marvel released a new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever exclusively at D23. Luckily, Total Film was on the ground for the footage and a new look at the upcoming superhero movie.
The first Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer was released to the public a few months ago, and it was breathtaking. The preview debuted at San Diego Comic-Con, moving hundreds gathered inside Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center to tears, and then it was released online, preparing the globe for the next instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We still have to wait until November to see the actual film, but today we were treated to another exclusive preview of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever thanks to the ongoing D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. As a result, our excitement for the blockbuster is now at an all-time hig
After the thrilling events on Friday afternoon that saw the release of the first Little Mermaid trailer, the revelation of a new Walt Disney Animation Studios film, and the announcement of Inside Out 2, D23 Expo held the major Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, and 20th Century Studios Presentation this morning. It was during the middle portion of the show that we got a brand-new look at Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The event featured a prolonged look at a complete sequence from the future Marvel film rather than just debuting a new sizzle clip or creating a new trailer.
Ramonda (Angela Bassett), accompanied by a number of guards, entered a mysterious chamber at the beginning of the Black Panther 2 D23 Expo video. Representatives from other nations address the Wakandan queen as she sits at the head of the room and inquire about vibranium and her nation’s resistance to sharing resources with the rest of the world. A representative from France questions Ramonda about the threat that the extraterrestrial element poses, in light of both its potential use in the creation of weapons of mass destruction and the fact that it doesn’t trigger metal detectors, after a representative from the United States (played by The West Wing’s Richard Schiff) opens the questioning.
The action pans away to a Wakanda Outreach Center that is being attacked while Ramonda explains that it is against Wakanda’s policy to share vibranium with the outside world out of concern that it would fall into the hands of criminals. Soldiers who speak French point their weapons at scientists and demand to know where the Vibranium tools are kept. The gunmen demand that one of the scientists open the huge, locked door for them after learning that what they’re looking for is hidden behind it. A hooded person then complies with their request.
Ramonda keeps reminding individuals who disagree with Wakandan foreign policy that she is aware of what is said in military bases and in halls of power. She says that although her people have lost their guardian in the form of the Black Panther, they are far from helpless. Back at the Outreach Center, the door ostensibly guarding the Vibranium equipment opens, and Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje emerge from the shadows. The hooded person who initially unlocked the door takes off her hood to expose herself as Aneka (Michaela Coel). It becomes evident that the Wakandans anticipated the French soldiers’ invasion, and they launch an attack using more advanced equipment and weapons to quickly
The proceedings are then interrupted as the Dora Milaje enter through the doors carrying the captured French military personnel. It is then revealed that these soldiers attempted their invasion before, not during, Ramonda’s testimony. Ramonda concludes by saying, “I think I’ve made my point,” and wishes the listener well.
A sizzle reel featuring additional footage from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was shown after the opening sequence. One of the clips featured Riri Williams in armour firing into the air. In the final scene of the clips, the new Black Panther leaps into the air and lands on the ground, but, like in the previously published teaser, just his feet are visible.
Hopefully the second Black Panther: Wakanda Forever teaser won’t be too long in coming, and if it has anything like the incredible intensity of the video revealed at D23 Expo, we’re all in for a treat. As the release date of the newest Marvel movie approaches, keep checking back for news and updates on that front.
