Who will assume the mantle of the Black Panther? is a question that hangs over the trailer. At the end of the trailer, a figure wearing the hero's suit is visible, albeit it isn't made clear who is wearing it.

According to Variety, the video made its debut towards the end of Marvel Studios' enormous panel on Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con, which was preceded by a fanfare for the subsequent panel performed by a troupe of traditional African singers.

The first Black Panther writer-director Ryan Coogler then spoke on stage about the follow-up while lamenting on the passing of Chadwick Boseman, the series' original lead. The principal actor T'Challa, Boseman, passed away in August 2020 after a four-year, private struggle with colon cancer.

“It’s going to be hard to follow that up, but we’ll try,” Coogler said. “It’s been five years since I was here. I sat about there and we premiered the first footage from ‘Black Panther 1,’ and sitting next to me was our T’Challa, the late great Chadwick Boseman.”

Coogler shared that Boseman was squeezing the director’s shoulder while watching the first footage. “I promise you, I can feel his hand on me right now.”

Coogler also offered some information on the sequel, saying “it goes to new places in Wakanda that we haven’t seen before and it goes to new places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

The "Black Panther" cast members Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong'o were then introduced by director Ryan Coogler on the Comic-Con stage.

“It’s a labor of love, and I have so much gratitude to be a part of it and be able to share it with you,” Duke said of the sequel.

“It’s a blessing. We’ve all grown so much as a family, and it feels great to see you guys and honor big bro at the same time,” Wright said.
