Marvel Studios unveils an emotional teaser for the sequel of the billion-dollar-grossing 2018 film, Black Panther.

Just 24 hours after its release, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s first teaser has already garnered an astounding 172 million views. While there are no direct hints of the possible plot and tensions of the upcoming film, the trailer released felt more like an urgent message: that everything’s gonna be alright, which totally brought audiences across social media platforms to tears.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s first teaser outperformed its predecessor’s, which nabbed 88 million views in 2017. By far, it became one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s top trailer debuts for a standalone superhero movie, following the likes of Spider-Man: No Way Home (355.5 million views) and Thor: Love and Thunder (209 million views). Upon release, Chadwick Boseman, Namor Shuri, T’Challa, Director Ryan Coogler, and Angela Bassett instantly trended with the hashtag #WakandaForever staying on the top trending spot for more than five hours.

Everything Spotted in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Teaser

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s teaser opens with the hurt expressions of the women of Wakanda staring out into the ocean as if reflecting on some kind of loss. It then showcased the nation of Wakanda getting into the war, with Shuri, Nakia, and Ramonda becoming the film’s most pivotal protectors of Wakanda nation, as they are being charged into battle against the army of Atlanteans, led by the fearful Namor, the Sub-Mariners (Tenoch Huerta).

For this sequel, Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett reprise their roles, with Michaela Coel, Dominique Thorne, Alex Nivilani, and Mabel Cadena joining the cast.

Before the teaser was released, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler and the film’s ensemble took the stage during Comic-Con and shared the legacy brought by the late Chadwick Boseman. Coogler told the Hall H crowd that it’s truly hard to follow up on the success and inspiration brought by the 2018 Black Panther, but they’re going to try.

The film pays tribute to Boseman with T’Challa’s face appearing on a mural within the 90-second teaser. “Sharing this trailer was cathartic and very highly emotional. We’ve all been through quite a bit,” Nyong’ o shared in an interview. “Those are raw emotions that you saw in the trailer. We weren’t faking. It was real because we feel so deeply and we are grieving so deeply,” Wright said.

Alongside the success of the trailer, Hollywood Records and Marvel Music also released the prologue soundtrack for the movie, which includes Tems’ cover of one of Bob Marley’s enduring songs, No Woman, No Cry.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled to hit theaters this coming November 11. Are you ready for some action, emotion, and drama? Stay posted for updates and don’t forget to mark your calendars for this new era of the Multiverse Saga of the MCU!
