Wakanda Forever! Stand up if you know!

The much-anticipated sequel to Marvel’s Black Panther has been released to kind reviews.

The two-minute and 47-second clip starts off with a rendition of Bob Marley and the Wailer’s 1974 hit “No Woman, No Cry” with Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) standing in front of a beautiful body of water.

Original cast members Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira, and Winston Duke all make appearances in the jam-packed teaser.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever introduces the character Namor McKenzie(Tenoch Huerta), the anti-hero better known as Sub-Mariner. The Atlantis king will be the film’s anatagonist.

According to The Direct, Namor is a half-breed between a human father and a princess of Atlantis. He can survive on land and in water. He’s considered to be “Marvel’s first mutant” by the comic book giant.

Namor’s debut was announced during the studio’s Hall H presentation at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con.

Another character making her film debut is Ironheart. Actress Dominique Throne (RiRi Williams) will play the successor to Tony Stark’s Ironman.

This will tie Throne’s character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe prior to the release of the Ironheart series on Disney+.

A wonderfully painted mural can also be spotted paying homage to the late Chadwick Boseman. He originated the role of T’Challa.

Boseman, 43 at the time of his death, succumbed to a private battle with cancer in 2020. Marvel chose not to recast the late actor’s role.

Since its release, the clip has gained over 9 million views in less than 14 hours. One fan said,

“This trailer stands out from every other trailer we’ve gotten in a long time, they said.  “It’s emotional and elegant, and it makes sure to not reveal too much while telling you what the move is about. RIP Chadwick Boseman.”

Another viewer wrote,

“Just when you thought Marvel may have started to lose some of its magic, Ryan Coogler and his brilliant cast and staff appear to have [put] together an absolute gem in Wakanda Forever. One of the best movie trailers I’ve ever seen hands down. Beautifully crafted. Can’t wait to see this movie!!!”

And Twitter was just as hyped. Check out some of the Tweets below:

I was good watching the Black Panther trailer until Angela said “I’m queen of the most powerful nation and my entire family is gone” I’m gonna lose it in the theater😓

Don’t sit there and act like the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer didn’t ROCK YOU! Marvel hasn’t released a trailer that good in ages! I so desperately hope the movie will reflect the quality of this trailer because I had zero expectations before and now I’m hyped!
