Marvel has released an extended trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Last year, it was announced that Marvel will not be recasting the role of T’Challa, who was played by late actor Chadwick Boseman.

In this sequel, someone else entirely will take on the role of the Black Panther and we get a first glimpse of them falling from a ceiling in the trailer.

The new trailer shows T’Challa’s family, including his sister Shuri (Laetitia Wright) and mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett), as they mourn the loss of the king.

Shuri can also be seen carrying her brother’s mask during a funeral procession.

You can watch the full trailer below:

Who is likely to play the new Black Panther?

Nothing has been confirmed by Marvel Studios about who is hiding behind the mask, but fans seem to think Shuri is the most likely candidate.

One fan tweeted: “FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW BLACK PANTHER IN #WAKANDAFOREVER!!!!!! In comics Shuri becomes black panther when T’challa is injured.”

Another wrote: “I guess it is safe to say from the new Black Panther poster Shuri is the new Black Panther?

“If so, I love it. Goes right in line with the comic book storyline.”

Will any other MCU characters be in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?

Ironheart, played by Dominique Thorne, will star in the sequel.
