In addition to a new Black Panther, Wakanda Forever will introduce Tenoch Huerta as Namor the Sub-Mariner, who has a long, complicated relationship with T’Challa in the Marvel comics.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is passing the torch.

In Marvel Studios' latest trailer for the sequel to 2018's Black Panther, familiar faces unite to team up against Namor (Tenoch Huerta), leader of the underwater kingdom of Talocan.

"His people do not call him general or king," says M'Baku (Winston Duke). "They call him K'uk'ulkan: the feather serpent god."

"Killing him will risk eternal war," M'Baku adds.

More scenes show familiar Wakandans including Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Ramonda (Angela Bassett) forging on without their fearless leader, King T'Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman) as they fight.

The Original Plan For Black Panther 2 Was 'Spiritually Very Similar' To Wakanda Forever

  The Original Plan For Black Panther 2 Was 'Spiritually Very Similar' To Wakanda Forever Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler had a T'Challa-led sequel idea in mind before Chadwick Boseman's tragic death."Wakanda Forever" is built on both triumph and tragedy. It's no secret that 2018's "Black Panther" was a major hit for Marvel Studios. It's one of the rare MCU films to be almost universally loved by critics, and even scored a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars. The film features a cast of predominantly Black actors, and celebrates African heritage and Black American identity in unprecedented ways — especially for a superhero blockbuster.

At the end of the trailer, a mystery individual is even shown wearing a Black Panther-like suit, seemingly taking the mantle from Boseman's beloved T'Challa.

"I think this film has the fog of loss over it, and anamorphic lenses warp the image a little bit," director and co-writer Ryan Coogler recently told Entertainment Weekly. "Sometimes when you go through profound loss, it can warp how you look at the world."

"What we were after was just making it feel tactile, even though it felt like a dream," added the filmmaker, 36. "The film should feel like a really wild dream that you would have, but where everything felt like it was really there."

Coogler also touched on the character of Namor, telling EW with a smile, "I think with making these types of movies, you've got to lean into the weird stuff, or you risk missing what makes it fun."

Black Panther 2's Shift Away From Atlantis Makes Sense

  Black Panther 2's Shift Away From Atlantis Makes Sense Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the debut of Namor in live-action. But one change to his origin may help the character grow even more.In the comics, Namor was the ruler of Atlantis as well as the first Mutant in Marvel Comics. He's since ruled over the kingdom and its people, who are far more hostile than the Atlantis shown in other forms of media. Nevertheless, it's just as much a staple to his character as his winged feet and pointed ears.

"He's got really unique features and things that don't necessarily go together," he added. "He can breathe underwater, obviously, but he's got these little wings on his ankles. He's got pointy ears and walks around in his underwear. It's all fun, man."

According to Coogler, "The film deals with a lot of things, but one of them is foils — people who exist in contrast, but there's a thread of similarity."

"In this film, we get to see Shuri meet someone who has some things in common with her, but is also very, very different," he added, seemingly referring to the new character of Riri Williams/Ironheart (Dominque Thorne).

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters Nov. 11.
