Marvel will be cranking up through the gears in 2022 with another series of huge films, which will culminate with the Black Panther 2 Wakanda Forever UK release date planned for the autumn. Here’s everything we know about the film so far, including the age rating certificate latest, our parents guide, details on the plot and cast, along with the runtime estimate.
However, it’s hard to talk about a new Black Panther film without mentioning the passing of Chadwick Boseman, who died from Cancer a year after his final performance as the character in Avengers Endgame. He’d made the role his own, so it’s going to be tough for Marvel to bring in a replacement of any kind, if it does at all.Advertisement If that isn’t enough, the film will also need to write in and explain the death of T’Challa in a way that makes sense for the continuation of the story. Hopefully, it stands up to Chadwick Boseman’s impeccable job in his previous performances and continues the legacy that he has left behind.
We know a little more about the Black Wakanda Forever cast following the panel at San Diego ComicCon, and it will see the return of Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as leader of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje military intelligence, Okeye and Leticia Wright as T’Challa’s younger sister and science wiz Shuri. Other returnees to the cast are Winston Duke as M’Baku, Angela Bassett as T’Challa’s mum and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Scott.Advertisement Dominique Thorne will play new addition Riri Williams / Ironheart, a young scientist that invents a suit that’s on par with the work of Tony Stark. The villain will be Namor, AKA the Sub-Mariner, with Tenoch Huerta playing the part of the King of Atlantis.
We’ll update you with more details on the cast as they’re confirmed.
Black Panther 2 Wakanda Forever UK release date
You never really know how definitive plans are with the impact of the COVID-19, but as things stand the Black Panther Wakanda Forever UK release date is set for November 2022, following a reschedule by Marvel Studios from the 8th July 2022. The original date was announced with its Phase 4 teaser back in May 2021, although the official Marvel.com page for the film always had it down for the 11th November 2022. Either Marvel was hedging its bets or it was just a simple mistake in a very busy year.
With the November 2022 release window, is should go on to come out on DVD and Blu-ray around March 2023, so it’ll be early spring for its home entertainment debut.Advertisement Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to see more news and updates on upcoming films.

Age rating and parents guide
The official Black Panther Wakanda Forever age rating for the UK will be confirmed by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) a couple of weeks ahead of the release date, but you can take a lot from the first film. It had a certification of 12, which has been the norm for Marvel films throughout the Cinematic Universe stretching all the way back to Iron Man in 2008.
In terms of the parents guide, you can expect moderate superhero violence to be the main point of concern. If you’ve seen the first film then you will already have a good idea about what to expect from BP 2, but if you haven’t it’s a good idea to catch it ahead of the 2022 release. It included someone flipping the bird, use of the S word and a psychoactive potion. You might also want to check out Avengers Infinity War and Endgame to get more insight into how the film will go down from an action intensity point of view.

As with the age rating, the runtime for Black Panther 2 Wakanda Forever will be confirmed a little ahead of the release date, but if the first film is anything to go by then it should be a little over 2 hours long.
