As part of Marvel Studios’ massive panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, fans got the long-awaited first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Phase 4’s final project. The sequel to one of the MCU’s most iconic solo movies delivered its first round of footage, getting fans excited about what’s coming in just over three months.
Black Panther 2 is set to pay tribute to the MCU’s deep history while also expanding the Wakandan legend further as the country takes its place in the world.
Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Ramonda take on more responsibilities than ever, having to rule over their nation after losing the late Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa. Fans also got a first look at Tenoch Huerta’s Namor the Sub-Mariner, who will make his first of likely many appearances as he leads the underwater nation above the ocean surface for the first time.
As is the case with every Marvel movie, Black Panther 2 will make its way onto the biggest screens with its arrival in IMAX theaters. And just a couple of days after its trailer hit the internet in the wake of Comic-Con 2022, fans now have a look at what the movie will be in the IMAX format.
Black Panther 2 Trailer Goes IMAX
IMAX released an expanded aspect ratio version of the first official trailer for Marvel Studios' Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which just premiered during Marvel Studios' Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con.
This trailer provides an expanded aspect ratio for all the new footage shown from Black Panther 2, giving a better look at both Wakanda and Atlantis as Marvel moves into its 30th movie.
The snow-capped mountains of Jabari Land come more fully into the frame, with the IMAX trailer showing the peak of one of them as a Wakandan aircraft flies towards M'Baku's domain.
Michaela Coel's Aneka comes into battle in another shot, with the IMAX trailer showing off the weapons in both of her hands along with more of the sky instead of just what's in her left hand.
The IMAX trailer provides new details on the Wakandans' battle with the Atlanteans, which seemingly happens on the side of a wall.

Wakanda Expands Further in IMAX Trailer
While the trailer doesn't show any new footage that wasn't seen at Comic-Con, it teases just how much more material will be seen in Black Panther 2 when it comes to IMAX screens this November. As was the case with both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder this year, the movie's scale will feel that much bigger in this enhanced viewing mode.
With both Wakanda and Atlantis being heavily featured in this movie, the IMAX ratio will allow fans to fully immerse themselves in the environment above the water and below it. This will only make the story that much more enjoyable to watch, even with likely some of the MCU's saddest moments in history coming throughout the story.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will debut in theaters on Friday, November 11.
