At Comic-Con on Saturday in San Diego, Marvel Studios debuted the first trailer for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which is set to “No Woman No Cry.”
It was merely a portion of the massive Hall H presentation, which also featured first looks at “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” and fresh details about Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will be wrapped up with the release of “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers: Secret Wars” in 2025.
Ryan Coogler, the director of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” was present in San Diego to preview the eagerly anticipated movie, which will conclude Phase 4 and hit theatres on November 11. Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020, was honoured by Coogler.
The impact he had on the industry, according to Coogler, “will be felt forever.”
Following “Black Panther’s” enormous success in 2018, plans for a follow-up were quickly put into motion. However, those were changed following Boseman’s untimely death from colon cancer. The studio declared that it would not have Boseman’s character, T’Challa, replaced. But over the years, very little information about the movie has surfaced. Letitia Wright, who portrays T’Challa’s intelligent sister Shuri, suffered an injury during filming, which caused a delay that ultimately led to the production’s completion in March. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett will also be back, but Daniel Kaluuya’s “Nope” schedule prevented him from doing so.
According to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, Phase 5 will begin in February with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and end in July 2024 with “Thunderbolts.” Release dates for the new “Blade,” starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, and “Captain America and the New World Order,” starring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson, are both set for May 3, 2024 and November 3, 2023, respectively.
In the middle of Phase 5 in May, The “Guardians of the Galaxy” will also end. In order to confirm that “Vol. 3” would be the final instalment for the space rogues, director James Gunn travelled to San Diego. For the movie, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, and Dave Bautista are all coming back. Will Poulter, who plays Adam Warlock, a foe of the Guardians, and Maria Bakalova are new cast members.
Peyton Reed, Jonathan Majors, Evangeline Lilly, and Paul Rudd travelled to San Diego to premiere some “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” footage.
Phase 6 will begin on November 8, 2024, with a new “Fantastic Four” film, and conclude on May 2, 2025, with “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” followed by “Avengers: Secret Wars,” on November 7, 2025.
Marvel also unveiled the first trailers for its Disney+ original series, including “Secret Invasion,” starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, which is set to premiere in the spring, and the half-hour comedy “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” starring Tatiana Maslany, which will premiere in August. Next summer will also likely see the release of “Lokisecond “‘s season.
