The title for “Black Panther 2” was revealed by Marvel Studios Monday in a clip celebrating the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but specifically looking forward to the Phase 4 titles — like “Black Panther 2.” But now you’ll finally be able to stop calling it that, because the sequel has an official name.
Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, the sequel to the 2018 film starring the late Chadwick Boseman, which is set to be released July 8, 2022, is titled “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Marvel revealed via the video above.
As Marvel Studios has previously stated, they will not recast the character of T’Challa, in order to honor Boseman’s legacy and performance following his passing last August, so the sequel “will explore the world of Wakanda and the rich characters introduced in the first film.”
Among Boseman’s co-stars in the first “Black Panther” were Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett and Daniel Kaluuya.
Also revealed in the video was a first look at the Angelina Jolie and Gemma Chan-led MCU movie, “Eternals,” and the title and release date for the sequel to Brie Larson’s “Captain Marvel,” which is called “The Marvels” and will hit theaters on Nov. 11, 2022.
Additionally, the video teased the MCU’s take on the “Fantastic Four” will be part of Phase 4 in some way — though no specific details were given beyond the flashy “4” logo.
