The highly-anticipated Black Panther sequel now has an official title: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The follow-up, again with Ryan Coogler as director, is slated to drop in cinemas in the US on July 8, 2022. Marvel Studios shared this news Monday (May 3) in a three-minute video (narrated by the late Stan Lee) celebrating the theatrical experience and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming Phase 4 line-up.
Other announcements include the title and release date for the sequel to the Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel called The Marvels, due Nov 11, 2022, and the release dates of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (Feb 17, 2023) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 23, 2023).
Another highlight in the video: a first look at the Eternals, starring Angelina Jolie and Gemma Chan and directed by Nomadland’s Oscar-winning Chloe Zhao. The movie, about a race of alien immortals, also stars Kumail Nanjiani, Don Lee, Richard Madden and Salma Hayek. It opens in the US on Nov 5 and a week earlier in Singapore on Oct 28.
The salute-to-cinemas clip ends with the Fantastic Four logo but with neither date nor title revealed. So far we only Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Jon Watts is handling the reboot. Can this be the next big announcement from Marvel? Hmmm…
