Comic-Con 2022 gave Marvel fans around the world a lot to celebrate and look forward to. Marvel announced their upcoming shows and movies for phase five and six of their cinematic universe, and there’s a lot in the pipeline. The head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, shared some exciting news about the newer seasons of their hit shows as well as some new series and films.
2022 is filled with some major releases such as the Black Panther’s sequel, Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, but this is just the beginning. In the span of the next two years, there will be not one but two new Avengers films as well as newer seasons of some of our favourite Disney+ series like Ms. Marvel, Loki, and even Daredevil. New shows such as Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Ironheart, I am Groot, and many more will be released in 2023.
But it was the trailer of the Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever that stole our heart. The film will now show how the people of Wakanda grieved and coped with the loss of their King T’Challa played by the late actor, Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in 2020 after a long battle with cancer.
The trailer was released during Comic-Con and everyone in the audience, including the cast members, were brought to tears as the song ‘No Woman, No Cry’ played in the background. Director Ryan Coogler spoke about honouring Boseman’s memory through the new film, saying, “I can feel his hand on me now.”
Wakanda Forever will be released later this year in November and will see Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Angela Bassett reprising their iconic roles.
