The movie was originally planned to air in May 2022 but was delayed after Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther himself, passed away in 2019 due to colon cancer. Londoner Daniel Kaluuya, who played the role of Boseman's best friend on-screen, will also not return to the film due to scheduling conflicts.
However, many of the actors from the original movie and subsequent Avengers projects will return. The trailer includes many familiar faces including Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett.
The trailer is comprised of unexplained figments; there's a lot of action concerning fire and water, the blue-lit technology of Wakanda, impassioned speeches without context, and action galore. While these flashes play out with increasing intensity, Kendrick Lamar's chant that "everything's gonna be alright" seems at odds with the destruction and grief being depicted. Bob Marlay's 'No Woman, No Cry' soundtracks most of the clip.
Marvel has still declined to confirm who the new Black Panther will be, but the trailer ends with a flash of the traditional Black Panther suit joining the fray. Many people expect T'Challa's sister Shuri to take up the mantle but it remains to be seen.

Ryan Coolger's original film was the highest grossing Marvel movie of all time before the release of Avengers: Endgame. Black Panther was nominated for seven academy awards upon its release and took home three including Best Original Music Score, Costume Design, and Production Design. The soundtrack, written by Ludwig Göransson, was curated and produced by Kendrick Lamar and features artists like SZA and Travis Scott.
In addition to airing the Black Panther trailer, Marvel discussed the rest of 'Phase 5' and introduced some of the key components of 'Phase 6'. The television series She-Hulk and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will conclude what Marvel calls 'Phase 4'. Part of the fifth phase will feature Anthony Mackie in the fourth Captain America Movie: Captain America: New World Order. Phase 6 will start with Marvel's take on the Fantastic Four and conclude with, not one, but two Avengers films.
