In addition to introducing new characters, Wakanda Forever will address the passing of Chadwick Boseman through the loss of Boseman's King T'Challa and how the film's supporting cast learns to carry on.
The sequel's marketing has already offered a preview of the powerful, emotional context in store for Marvel audiences.
And now, Disney+ has offered a new way for fans to revisit Boseman's MCU catalog prior to the anticipated film's release.
New Black Panther Collection Revealed on Disney+
Out ahead of the wide release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Disney+ has revealed a new collection of films and series featuring Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther.
In addition to 2018's Black Panther, Disney+'s Black Panther Collection consists of Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and the animated series What If...?
While Black Panther 2 is the latest film from Marvel Studios, the Black Panther Collection is far from the first. In fact, these special MCU collections have become a sort of Disney+ tradition.
Disney+ then did the same this summer for Thor: Love and Thunder.
However, instead of unveiling the Thor Collection prior to the threequel's streaming release, Disney+ chose to share the themed library ahead of its theatrical debut.
It appears that Disney+ is keeping with the pre-theatrical model for Black Panther 2, joining Mark Ruffalo's Hulk Collection as the latest to be added to the Marvel Studios section of the streamer.
Why The Black Panther Collection Is Different
While the Black Panther Collection serves as a handy refresher ahead of Wakanda Forever, it also stands as a testament to Boseman's contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But that's not the only this collection stands apart from the rest.
Those who choose to reacquaint themselves with his MCU journey may also discover parallels with Wakanda's next Black Panther.
After all, T'Challa's own MCU story began with a loss and his dealing with grief and regret.
So even though this collection may have been intended as a pre-theater primer, it may, in fact, hit differently after a Black Panther 2 viewing.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives in theaters on November 11.
