If Thor: Love and Thunder disappoints both the public and the commercial film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever seems poised to move MCU fans and blow a billion at the box office. It must be said that the trailer sets the tone for a film that will be the antithesis of the comedies that Marvel has been throwing at us for over a year and which are increasingly disappointing their audience. It’s hard to pump valves every 2 minutes when we know we’ll have to deal with the death of Chadwick Boseman, his character in the movie, and honor his legacy. The Comic-Con 2022 trailer is also emotionally charged, as is some of the footage of Shuri (played by Letitia Wright) mourning her brother’s death. Tears that probably won’t need to be played when we know how much the actress was touched by her friend’s death. Angela Bassett also has a powerful scene in which she explains that she is at the head of the most powerful nation in the world, but at the cost of losing her entire family, husband and son, all with a lump in her throat. . The extract is especially strong and mobile.
But this first trailer for Black Panther Wakanda Forever confirms all the rumors that have been circulating for months, namely the appearance of Atlantis in the film. Wakanda and the water world will come into conflict and pull Namor out of the water. He is also a Mexican actor. Tenoch Huerta will play the Prince of the Seas, and the actress Dominic Thorne will make his MCU debut as Ironheart. Wakanda will obviously play an important role in the creation of the character and no doubt his armor. Another striking element of this first trailer is the many water scenes that are also very reminiscent of Avatar 2: The Way of the Water. Between being born underwater, whales serving as a vehicle, and aquatic plans, we get the impression that director Ryan Coogler drew inspiration from the work of James Cameron. Of course, African culture will remain representative of this second film, which also has good taste, offering a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry”, where his words take on real meaning in this sequel.
