Marvel has revealed the new trailer for Black Panther – Wakanda forever and Michaela Coel has been uncovered as playing the role Aneka.
Marvel is undoubtedly well-known to always have something up their sleeve, but this time, it’s a character.
During Marvel’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, they took advantage of the moment to make several massive announcements, including its full plans for MCU Phase 5 and Phase 6.
One of the announcements was the reveal that Michaela Coel will be playing the character Aneka in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The two-minute 11-second trailer for the Black Panther sequel offers us our first glimpse at Aneka, the combat instructor of the Dora Milaje, the all-woman special forces team of Wakanda, and personal bodyguards to the Black Panther.
With a group that has demonstrated their abilities in combat thoroughly in the previous MCU film, getting to see the woman that trained these warriors will be an exciting addition to the upcoming movie’s cast of characters.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to star Letitia Wright as tech genius Shuri with other returning cast members including Danai Gurira as Okoye, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, and Angela Bassett as Queen Mother Ramonda.
While some fans thought Daniel Kaluuya’s W’Kabi would return as the film’s villain, Kaluuya was unable to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts with Jordan Peele’s movie, Nope. This disappointing news brought Tenoch Huerta, who will be making his first-time appearance in the franchise, to play the character Namor.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premieres in theaters on November 11.
