At Comic-Con on Saturday in San Diego, Marvel Studios treated fans to the premiere of the first teaser for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The film was paired to the song “No Woman, No Cry.”
It was just one part of the massive Hall H presentation, which also included first-looks at “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” and new information about Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will conclude with two Avengers movies in 2025: “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers: Secret Wars.” The presentation took place in Hall H.
The director of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Ryan Coogler, was present in San Diego for a sneak peek of the highly anticipated picture. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is scheduled to hit theatres on November 11 and will serve as the culmination of Phase 4. Chadwick Boseman passed away in August of 2020, and Ryan Coogler paid respect to him.

Coogler stated that the influence that “he made that he has on this industry will be felt forever”
Following the unprecedented success of “Black Panther” in 2018, immediate preparations were made to begin work on a follow-up film. However, those were changed following the untimely passing of Boseman due to colon cancer. The production company stated that it had no plans to replace Chadwick Boseman in the role of T’Challa. However, in the years that have passed since the release of the film, virtually little new information has surfaced. After a number of setbacks, production finally came to an end in the month of March. One of the reasons for the delays was an injury incurred by Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s smart sister Shuri. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett will also be back for the second season, but Daniel Kaluuya won’t be since his “Nope” schedule won’t allow it.
According to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, Phase 5 will begin in February with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania” and will end with “Thunderbolts” in July 2024. The new “Blade,” which will star Mahershala Ali, winner of an Academy Award, has also been given a release date of November 3, 2023, while “Captain America and the New World Order,” which will have Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson, will be released in theatres on May 3, 2024.
In the middle of Phase 5, in the month of May, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” will likewise reach its conclusion. James Gunn, the film’s director, made an appearance in San Diego to confirm that “Vol. 3” will be the final instalment for the space rogues. All four of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, and Dave Bautista have been confirmed to reprise their roles in the movie. Will Poulter, who plays the Guardians’ enemy Adam Warlock, and Maria Bakalova are two of the new cast members.
The cast of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Jonathan Majors, as well as director Peyton Reed, travelled to San Diego in order to present some footage from their upcoming film.
Phase 6 will begin on November 8, 2024, with the release of a new “Fantastic Four” film, and it will conclude with “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” which is scheduled to take place on May 2, 2025, followed by “Avengers: Secret Wars,” which will take place on November 7, 2025.
Trailers for upcoming Marvel series on Disney+ were also shown, including “Secret Invasion,” which will star Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and will premiere in the spring, and “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” a half-hour comedy series that will star Tatiana Maslany and will make its debut in August. The summer of 2019 should also see the premiere of the second season of “Loki.”
The Comic-Con event will continue until Sunday.
