Black Panther: Wakanda Forever released it’s trailer at Comic-Con on Saturday and paid a moving tribute to Chadwick Boseman.

The footage, which included an incredible montage sequence, was unveiled by director Ryan Coogler and Marve Studeios cast.

Coogler told a panel at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend that “we put our love for Chadwick into this film”.

He also spoke about how five years prior, the first ever footage was released on that same stage.

Coogler said: “Five years ago, I sat about right there, and we premiered the first footage from Black Panther,”.

“Sitting next to me, right to my left, was our T’Challa, the late great Chadwick Boseman.

“The cast, including Chad, hadn’t seen the footage yet, so when we played it, he was right next to me, and he was excited, and he grabbed my shoulders. If you ever saw Chad in person, he had these enormous hands.”

He added: “I promise you I can feel his hand on me now.

“Chad is no longer with us physically, but his spirit, his passion, his genius, his pride, his culture, and the impact that he made on this industry will be felt forever. We put our love for Chadwick into this film.”

Boseman and T’Challa’s loss is evident from the start of the trailer, as Shuri – played by Letitia Wright – and Queen Ramonda – Angela Bassett – mourn their fallen king.

However, as the trailer continues, fans see a new Black Panther, but we have no idea who it is as their face is hidden. Is it Shuri or someone else entirely?

The panel confirmed to Marvel fans rumours over whether Namor the Sub-Mariner, the king of the state of Atlantis, will appear, portrayed by Tenoch Huerta.

Namor and T’Challa had a rivalry in the 2013 New Avengers comic, set up by writer Jonathan Hickman.

Speaking on the panel was Huerta himself, who said it was an “honor” to be there.

He said: “I’m so happy to be here. It’s an honor. I want to say something really fast about inclusion.

“I come from the hood. Seriously. And thanks to inclusion, I am here. I wouldn’t be here without inclusion.

“A lot of kids are there in their hood, looking at us, dreaming to be here. And they’re going to make it.”

However, he isn’t the only new face, as fans catch a glimpse of Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) as Ironheart. She is set to have her own series on Disney+.

Fans ‘teary’ over Chadwick’s tribute

Florence Kasumba says people “won’t be disappointed,” with how they memorialized Chadwick Boseman in the “Black Panther” sequel. “There’s not a single day where I’m not thinking of him, and anytime we worked he was there. And he always will be there.” https://t.co/J9jrJ79gK5 pic.twitter.com/5LlMGDQveN— Variety (@Variety) July 24, 2022

One fan wrote: “Black Panther 2 Teaser #WakandaForever just dropped and I’m both excited and sad that we lost Chadwick Boseman.”

A second wrote: “My Sunday is made already Seeing a mural of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa in ‘BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER’ is soothing like he said, ‘in my culture death is not the end’.

A third penned: “Chadwick Boseman, I wish you are here to witness this day and finish what you started; The Black Panther movie continuation. The trailer really got me; the songs “No woman, no cry” to “Alright” is a banger.

No trailer has made me cry but the New Black panther trailer is an exception. The camera shots, the songs, the reveal of Atlantis, Namor, and Iron Heart. I love how this is a tribute to Chadwick Boseman and Angela Bassett speech was too emotional. Wakanda Forever!!!— Oyiga Micheal (@Nsukka_okpa) July 24, 2022
