Black Panther Wakanda Forever Trailer

Did you know ... ?

  1. Chadwick Boseman's brother, Derrick Boseman has spoken out against the idea of retiring the character of T'Challa rather than recasting. He believes that his brother wouldn't have been so egotistical as to wanting the character to die with him and would instead want the character's journey to continue.
  2. Ryan Coogler has stated that making this film without Chadwick Boseman is the hardest thing he's ever done.
  3. The film was supposed to release in July 2022. However after a major rescheduling in 2021, Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) took that slot, while the Black Panther sequel took the November 2022 release slot of The Marvels (2023) when the Captain Marvel (2019) sequel was delayed to February 2023.
  4. Daniel Kaluuya was set to return as W'Kabi but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with Nope (2022).
  5. Tenoch Huerta learned a Mayan language for his role of Namor.
  6. Dorothy Steel's final film role before her death in 2021.
  7. The 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  8. It was announced that the role of T'Challa would not be digitally recreated and not recast, out of respect for Chadwick Boseman's legacy.
  9. After Chadwick Boseman's untimely death, some fans have advocated for the next Black Panther film to follow the comics and to have Shuri, T'Challa's sister, take on the role as the new Black Panther
  10. On July 23rd, 2022, Kevin Feige announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the film will mark the culmination of Phase 4 of the MCU.
  11. Tenoch Huerta, who plays the ruler of an underwater kingdom, didn't know how to swim. When Ryan Coogler offered him the role and asked about his swimming skills, Huerta simply replied, "I've never drowned before." He took swimming lessons afterwards in preparation for the role.
  12. Chadwick Boseman initially signed up for a 5 picture deal with Marvel Studios back in 2014. This film would have been his final contractual appearance in live action as Black Panther in the MCU.
  13. The colour white as seen throughout the teaser and in the funeral scene implies that in Wakanda Wakandans wear white instead of black to celebrate their loved ones passing away, which is the tradition in their country.
  14. Winston Duke had campaigned for his character, M'Baku, to be the sequel's main villain.
  15. Marvel stated that due to Chadwick Boseman's untimely death on August 28, 2020, all plans for Black Panther II have been left in an uncertain state. For a time, Marvel was not sure whether they were going to recast another actor to portray Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  16. The Talocans are heavily inspired by Measoamerican culture, primarily Aztec culture and the Aztec water god Tlaloc.
  17. In the Marvel Comics, Namor is ruler of the underwater realm of Atlantis. The filmmakers changed the name to avoid connections/comparisons with other versions of Atlantis (notably DC Comics' version and its own superhero king Aquaman (2018)), and so in the film the realm is named Talocan, after the Aztec underwater realm of Tlalocan.
  18. Hannah Beachler cites the artwork of artist Jack Kirby, the fantasy film Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and the sea film Jaws (1975) as an influence on the production design.
  19. First movie directed by Ryan Coogler to be filmed in Panavision (anamorphic).
  20. According to Hannah Beachler, the teeth on the Talocan throne room belongs to a megalodon.
  21. The first MCU sequel not to have the same titular superhero character as its predecessor, due to the death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020. (Although, Hulk was played by Edward Norton in the first MCU solo outing, while Mark Ruffalo took over the role of Hulk in The Avengers and all subsequent MCU films featuring him, but none of these releases include Hulk in the title).
  22. The first live-action appearance of Namor.
  23. Michael Phelps, Daniel Dae Kim, Brian Tee, Dwayne Johnson and David Boreanaz were all considered for Namor. Before being cast as Shang-Chi, Simu Liu commented back in a 2018 Q&A that he was interested in playing either Sunfire or Namor the Sub-Mariner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  24. The cast took lessons in swimming and breath training for the film.
  25. The Talocan throne room is production designer Hannah Beachler's favourite set she designed for the film.
  26. Tenoch Huerta (Namor) received the first ever "introducing" credit for a Marvel Studios film, a credit that usually indicates an actor is making their film debut.
  27. With the runtime of 161 minutes (2hrs 41 mins) this will be the second longest film in the MCU behind Avengers: Endgame (2019) runtime of 181 minutes (3hrs 1min) and the longest solo MCU film, dethroning Eternals (2021).
  28. Due to the extensive amount of underwater filming, costume designer Ruth E. Carter had to test/design certain Talocan costumes by submerging them in a pool and seeing how they moved in the water.
  29. The eleventh film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe film to be Filmed in Panavision (anamorphic), after The Incredible Hulk (2008), Thor (2011), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Avengers: Endgame (2019), Black Widow (2021) and Thor: Love and Thunder (2022). Twelfth if you count Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), of which the film's opening scene was shot on a set of Cooke Xtal Xpress Anamorphic Lenses rehoused by Panavision.
