‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Cast Salute Chadwick Boseman in Namor Video

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a month away from hitting theaters, and a new video sees the stars of the upcoming Marvel sequel pay tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman

In the featurette, director Ryan Coogler and stars including Letitia Wright, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett pay tribute to their former leading man and previous incumbent of the Black Panther mantle, who died in 2020.

The video also shows more of Tenoch Huerta as aquatic antihero Namor the Submariner, a Marvel comics character who often veers between hero and villain and is finally splashing into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A bunch of new character posters show members of Namor’s underwater race wearing what looks like a water-filled breathing apparatus, presumably so they can breathe on land. 

The video closes with a glimpse of a new Black Panther (though her identity is hidden by a mask).

Black Panther 2 opens in theaters Nov. 11. The film also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, Alex Livinalli and Martin Freeman. Dominique Thorne debuts as Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, who will spin off in her own Disney Plus series at some point.
