The first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has just dropped as one of the revelations from the Marvel panel at San Diego's Comic-Con.

It's the first ever look at the film, which is out in cinemas later this year on November 11th.

The movie is a direct sequel to Black Panther which was released in 2018 and comes following the tragic death of lead actor Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer at the age of 43.

Check out the trailer for the new film below:

Ryan Coogler has returned to direct following the huge success of the first film, which was the first ever superhero movie to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. It's set to be the conclusion of Phase 4 of the MCU.

The plans for the sequel were unsurprisingly changed after Boseman passed away, with the decision being made not to recast the actor's role of T'Challa.

However, the blockbuster has had a rocky production once it was finally able to get going in mid-2021, after one of the sequel's stars, Letitia Wright, was injured during filming causing a hiatus until she recovered.

It finally wrapped production in March 2022 and today's trailer is the first ever look at the movie.

The follow-up is greatly anticipated given the success of the first film. It was the first Marvel Studios feature to win an Oscar after it scooped three: Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score.

The latter two awards were particularly momentous, as Ruth Carter became the first African American woman to win in the Best Costume Design category and Hannah Beachler was the first woman of colour to even be nominated for Best Production Design - let alone win it.

The landmark picture also made $1.347 billion at the box office overall, which made it the highest-grossing solo superhero movie of all time.

So it's safe to say, the sequel has a lot to live up to. It remains to be seen how they will deal with the loss of T'Challa but the character of Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, is expected to play a much bigger role.

Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Winston Duke are all returning, however Daniel Kaluuya has confirmed he will not be back.

The movie has got big boots to fill and while we don't know yet how it will fare, it'll certainly be a gripping film to end the year with.
