Director Ryan Coogler opened with a tribute to Chadwick Boseman.
Following the tribute, the film’s cast joined him on stage, and they officially welcomed newcomers Dominique Thorne and Tenoch Huerta as Riri Williams/Ironheart and Tenoch Huerta as Namor.
Huerta addressed the crowd and spoke on the importance of inclusion and representation in Hollywood. Black Panther is a symbol of inclusion in the MCU, and Huerta is proud to push those boundaries further in Wakanda Forever.
The Wakanda Forever cast closed out Marvel Studios’ SDCC panel with the release of the teaser trailer for the film.

Marvel Studios’ History at San Diego Comic-Con
Marvel Studios has officially returned to San Diego Comic-Con and Hall H. The company is known for making massive announcements at SDCC even though they have been missing from the convention for the last few years.
At their last SDCC in 2019, the studio revealed Black Widow, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Eternals, Shang-Chi, WandaVision, Doctor Strange 2, Loki, What If, Hawkeye, and Thor: Love and Thunder.
The final title in that lineup, Thor: Love and Thunder, landed in theaters earlier this month. Before SDCC 2019, Marvel Studios also decided to skip SDCC 2018 but gave attendees many surprises the year before at SDCC 2017. Thor: Ragnarok was the big movie of this panel as Marvel Studios showed attendees some clips, debuted a new trailer, and held a Q&A with the cast. The studio also showed off Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War.
At SDCC 2016, Marvel Studios gave fans a look at the Black Panther cast, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and announced Captain Marvel with Brie Larson. The studio was a no-show at the 2015 convention, but SDCC 2014 saw the announcement of Ant-Man and its cast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron.
SDCC 2013 featured the announcement of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy were all shown off also.
