The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” teaser video received 172 million views in its first 24 hours, making it one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best trailer debuts for a superhero film, according to Variety. The “Wakanda Forever” teaser nearly quadrupled the 88 million views received by the first “Black Panther” teaser in 2017.
The trailer also sparked a social media frenzy, with “Black Panther”-related subjects receiving over 893,000 mentions. After the teaser debuted, Chadwick Boseman, Namor, Shuri, T’Challa, Ryan Coogler, and Angela Bassett all became national trending topics, and the hashtag #WakandaForever remained at the top of the trending list for more than five hours.

The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” teaser has surpassed the 355.5 million views of the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” trailer and the “Thor: Love and Thunder” teaser in terms of the number of views in the first 24 hours (209 million views).
More than 230 million people watched the first trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War,” and another 230 million people watched the teaser for the final film in the “Avengers” series, which was followed by a final trailer for “Avengers: Endgame” (179 million).
The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” teaser aired on a Saturday night at roughly 9:20 p.m. ET, unlike many of the other Marvel movies mentioned above. That isn’t exactly the ideal time for a trailer debut, as most trailers are released on weekday mornings and take advantage of the workday rewatch factor.
“Black Panther’s” sequel, the next feature film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was unveiled in a teaser. An Atlantean army commanded by Namor invades Wakanda, which is shown in this clip (Tenoch Huerta). Danai Gurira and Florence Kasumba join Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright in the spotlight.
In addition to Winston Duke and Angela Bassett, newcomers Michaela Coel, Dominique Thorne, Alex Nivilani, and Mabel Cadena reprise their roles from the first “Black Panther.” Hollywood Records and Marvel Music published a prologue soundtrack for the movie earlier this week, following the success of the teaser release.
With Tems’ “No Woman, No Cry” on the sound track, the song has already garnered attention for its prominent placement in the teaser trailer. Ahead of the teaser’s debut in Comic-Hall Con’s H, director Ryan Coogler and a few members of the cast gathered on stage to talk about their upcoming film and the late Chadwick Boseman, who played the title role in the first “Black Panther” film in 2018 before passing away two years later from colon cancer.
Coogler told the crowd, “It’s going to be hard to follow that up, but we’ll try.” Nov. 11 is the release date for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The teaser may be seen here.
