It’s not going to be easy traveling back to Wakanda after Chadwick Boseman’s tragic and untimely death. The actor’s legacy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and everything he’s contributed to Hollywood remains one of the most beautiful things we’ve all been fortunate to witness. But the story is to continue, and that story is evidently one that will honor not only the real life superhero but the fictional Avenger. San Diego Comic-Con unveiled much for Marvel, closing the Hall H panel with Ryan Coogler and the cast debuting the Wakanda Forever trailer. 

The trailer opens up with a new song soon to be released, with the lyrics “no woman, no cry,” and that might be the point where we all started crying. A chorus that follows repeats, “everything’s going to be alright,” and the tears keep running as the Wakanda Forever trailer unveils more of where the story will take its characters.

Film director Ryan Coogler took the stage to share an emotional tribute to the late actor, stating, “his spirit, his passion, his genius, his pride, and his culture — the impact he made on this industry will be felt forever. We put our love for Chadwick into this film.” And as it’s something that’s undoubtedly felt throughout the trailer, we can be sure that we’ll feel it in the film as well. You can’t predict how a Marvel Cinematic Universe film will ever go, but it’s safe to assume that this will be the best one yet in Phase 4.

And that’s a fitting sentiment considering it’s now confirmed that Wakanda Forever will conclude Phase 4. Wakanda Forever trailer also showcased returning stars Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Domonique Thorne, Letitia Wright, and more. 

Black Panther was first and foremost about a gracefully impactful man and the people who adored him; thus, how the film will take this story while weaving it into the universe will be most excellent. 

Wakanda Forever will premiere in theaters on November 11, 2022, but in the meantime, we’ll be re-watching the trailer.
