Even amongst a jam-packed slate of announcements from Marvel Studios at San Diego Comic-Con, the MCU’s last movie of the year, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, had its moment to shine bright. Now standing as the final entry in Phase 4, the Black Panther sequel has a great deal of responsibility on its broad shoulders.

This movie had a thrilling presentation in Hall H, which ended with the first Wakanda Forever trailer being released online for the world to take in. While Tenoch Huerta’s Namor the Sub-Mariner stole the show by making his MCU debut, the trailer largely focused on a number of major returning players from the immensely successful first movie.

Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia kicked the footage off by appearing in one of the first shots before Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Ramonda paid homage to the late T’Challa, played by MCU icon Chadwick Boseman. Now, as part of the movie's promotional tour, fans get one more memorable image from San Diego Comic-Con as the 2022 event comes to an end.

Black Panther 2 Heroes Shine in Poster

Marvel's Angélique Roché shared a new poster on Twitter for Marvel Studios' Black Panther: Wakanda Forever following the movie's presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.

Letitia Wright's Shuri stands in the middle with her eyes closed and her arms crossed in classic Wakandan fashion. Lupita Nyong'o's Nakia stands to her left and Angela Bassett's Ramonda to her right, both taking identical poses as the late Chadwick Boseman's King T'Challa looks down on them in his Black Panther mask.

Roché included a simple caption of "The sheer power."

Wakandan Women Leading Black Panther 2's Efforts

While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's first official poster focused on honoring Chadwick Boseman's memory, as the movie will do all the way through, this new one puts three of its lead characters into the spotlight.

Without Boseman, Black Panther 2 will be much more of a team effort in terms of who takes on the most responsibilities from an acting and story standpoint. It only makes sense that Shuri, Nakia and Ramonda will be the most responsible for carrying that mantle as T'Challa's sister, love interest, and mother, respectively.

As has been the case throughout the sequel's short promotional tour, this new poster commemorates Boseman's efforts as T'Challa while looking to the future with all three heroes included.

Shuri, Nakia, and Ramonda will be Wakanda's most pivotal protectors as the country charges into battle against Namor the Sub-Mariner and the Atlanteans, which should be a driving plot point in this movie. That will be coupled with plenty of emotion and drama, all while Wakanda Forever ushers in a new era of the Multiverse Saga for the MCU.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will premiere in theaters on Friday, November 11.
