The Wakanda premiere
Our very own Lupita Nyong'o has made a tear-dropping feature in the new Wakanda Forever trailer. Marvel Studios dropped the trailer on Sunday, July 24 to a wild reaction from fans who love comic books.
The trailer starts with Lupita standing on a beach and dressed in green and black body armor. She is sadly gazing at the sea as a rendition of reggae icon Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry plays in the background.
Lupita appears to be sad at the beginning of the trailer as she remembers what she lost in the movie, and also in real life.
The trailer goes on to get deeper into the story as all the other cast members remember American actor Chadwick Bosman who played the lead role in the first installment of the film.
Lupita played the love interest of Chadwick Bosman and although their story was not followed up much in the film, she was still a big part of the kingdom. Her feature as the first actress who appears in the trailer could mean that she has a huge role to play in the upcoming film.
Lupita shared the emotional trailer on her Instagram and the same was also shared by her fellow actors who got moved by it. According to a caption on her post, the film is set to drop on November 11, 2022.
Fans who commented on the trailer expressed their sadness and also amazement when they saw it. Some had concerns about how the film would do with replacing Chadwick Bosman.
