Marvel Studios announced its plans for upcoming releases in a 3-minute trailer Monday that included a name and date for the "Black Panther" sequel.
"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is due in theaters on July 8, 2022. Other characters and actors will return, but Marvel has said no one will take the place of the late Chadwick Boseman. The actor died last August at age 43.
The Marvel trailer also previewed "Chloé Zhao's Eternals", including Gemma Chan as Sersi saying, "We're the ones who changed everything". Its release date is Nov. 5.
Brie Larson's "Captain Marvel" sequel, "The Marvels", reaches theaters in November 2022.
In between are "Spider-Man: No Way Home", "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", and "Thor: Love and Thunder".
Marvel had already announced the debut of its first leading Asian superhero in "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings". The film, starring Simu Liu, was pushed back from July to September.
