Marvel fans have rewatched the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer many times now, as it stands as one of the best debuted during SDCC.

In amongst the emotional beats and action sequences of the trailer, fans have spotted a subtle nod to Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, and we recap the moment it happened.

Directed by Ryan Coogler and starring  Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, and more, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shows a union in the kingdom of Wakanda against the Atlanteans after King T’Challa’s death.

Black Panther trailer recap

The first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever showed Wakanda in mourning after the passing of T’Challa, before a new threat arrives.

Various scenes show Shuri, Nakia, Ramonda, and the Dora Milaje uniting in Wakanda against Namor and the Atlanteans.

A fleeting shot also introduces Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, who is stationed at Shuri’s lab for the time being, and a brief shot of her making her first Iron Man suit holds a subtle nod to Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man.

The scene in question shows Riri working on a piece of vibranium whilst making her first suit to help fight against the Atlanteans – presumably her Mark I suit.

Riri is shown in a white vest hammering down on the precious metal to hit out a heart-shaped piece, but this scene also mirrors Tony Stark’s scene in the first Iron Man movie.

In the 2008 movie, Tony is also hard at work in a sleeveless vest using a mallet to construct his Mark I Iron Man suit.
