The first trailer for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was shown to fans at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday. It was set to the song “No Woman, No Cry.”
It was just one part of the huge 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 end with two Avengers movies in 2025: “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers: Secret Wars.”
The director of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Ryan Coogler, was in San Diego to show a sneak peek of the film. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is coming to theatres on November 11 and will be the end of Phase 4. Chadwick Boseman died in August 2020, so Coogler paid tribute to him.

Coogler said, “The changes he made to this business will last forever.”
After “Black Panther” was a huge hit in 2018, plans were made quickly for a second movie. But those were changed after Boseman died of colon cancer, which was a shock. The studio said that Boseman’s role as T’Challa would not be given to someone else. But since the movie came out, not much has been said about it. After a few delays, the movie was finished in March. One of those delays was caused by an injury to Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s smart sister Shuri. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett are also coming back, but Daniel Kaluuya isn’t because his “Nope” schedule didn’t work out.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, said that Phase 5 will start in February with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania” and end in July 2024 with “Thunderbolts.” The new “Blade,” starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, will come out on Nov. 3, 2023, and Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson will be in “Captain America and the New World Order,” which comes out on May 3, 2024.
The last episode of “Guardians of the Galaxy” will air in May, right in the middle of Phase 5. James Gunn, the movie’s director, went to San Diego to confirm that “Vol. 3” would be the last time we see the space rogues. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, and Dave Bautista are all coming back for the movie. Will Poulter, who plays the Guardians’ enemy Adam Warlock, and Maria Bakalova are among the new cast members.
Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Jonathan Majors, and Peyton Reed, who directed “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” went to San Diego to show some footage from the movie.
On November 8, 2024, a new “Fantastic Four” movie will come out. It will be followed by “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” on May 2, 2025, and then “Avengers: Secret Wars” on November 7, 2025.
Marvel also showed trailers for upcoming Disney+ shows like “Secret Invasion,” starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, and “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” starring Tatiana Maslany and coming out in August. Next summer, you can also expect the second season of “Loki.”
Comic-Con is going on until Sunday.
