Marvel Fans Have Emotional Reaction to Chadwick Boseman in Black Panther 2 Trailer

The tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman in 2020 left Hollywood in shock, and that shock was felt more than anywhere by Marvel fans. Having taken on the role of T’Challa aka Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the character’s journey was set to continue in a Black Panther sequel. Now that sequel is almost here, and the trailer for the movie has brought an emotional reaction from fans as the Wakandans mourn the loss of King T’Challa, something that resonates with the fans of the franchise.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel’s extensive panel of guests included Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler, as well as stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Winston Duke among others. The new footage of the Black Panther sequel revealed the Marvel world’s tribute to the character and the actor, who is seen in the movie as part of a mural painted on a wall in his honor. Talking about the movie director Coogler said:


“Chad’s passion and genius and his culture and the impact he made on this industry will be felt forever. We put our love for Chadwick into this film. We also put our passion. This film has a ton of action and humor. It’s also a roller coaster of a movie. It goes not only to new places in Wakanda that we’ve never been before but other corners of the MCU.”

Fans Gave An Emotional Reaction To The New Black Panther Trailer

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Having speculated for months as to how exactly the death of Chadwick Boseman would be handled in the new movie, fans were given their answer in a number of scenes in the trailer that choked many fans due to the parallels between the fictional death of T’Challa and the real life passing of Boseman. While many reacted to the sight of Boseman, others noted that the trailer also gives a first tease of the new Black Panther in the MCU, and that is something that will also take a little getting used to.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will see the introduction of a whole new world to the MCU with the arrival of Namor, a character whose arrival has been rumored for some time and who will be played by Tenoch Huerta in the movie. While the trailer gives just a little tease of the conflict to come between the nations of Wakanda and Atlantis, but with plenty of action and more time spent in Wakanda being promised in the sequel, we can expect a number of sweeping battles to take place between the two sides over the course of the movie.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever features the return of Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman and the introduction of Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, who makes her MCU debut ahead of her own TV show on Disney+ next year. The film will arrive in cinemas on November 11 as the culmination of Phase 4 of the MCU.
