Wakanda Forever Movie Trailer Debuts at Comic Con, Ryan Coogler Pays Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

Screenwriter and director Ryan Coogler launched the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and garnered a visceral reaction from audiences at its Comic-Con seminar and the Black Panther Fandom on social networks.

“I promise you, I feel his hand on me right now,” Coogler said Saturday at Comic-Con, speaking of the late star, Chadwick Bosemanaccording to Deadline.

“Chad’s passion and genius, his culture and the impact he had on this industry will be felt forever,” the director added ahead of the film’s trailer premiere.

“We put our love for Chadwick into this movie. We put our passion into it too. This movie has a ton of action and humor. It’s also a roller coaster of a movie. It goes to new places of Wakanda that we’ve never visited before, but in other corners of the MCU,” Coogler continued.

Coogler graced the stage to talk about the highly anticipated sequel and contemplated the legacy of Boseman playing the lead role of T’Challa. Variety reports that Boseman lost his four-year battle with colon cancer and succumbed in August 2020.

“It’s going to be hard to follow that, but we’ll try,” Coogler said.

“I have been here for five years. I sat pretty much there and we created the first footage of Black Panther 1, and sitting next to me was our T’Challa, the late great Chadwick Boseman.

The NAACP-winning director teased audiences that the film [go] to new places in Wakanda that we’ve never seen before and it’s going to new places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” according to Variety.

Black Panther stars Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, and Duke Winston were also there to promote the Marvel action movie.

“It’s a labor of love, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it and to be able to share it with you,” Duke said of the sequel.

“It’s a blessing. We’ve all grown so much as a family, and it’s great to see you and honor your big brother at the same time,” Wright said.
