‘Black Panther’ sequel trailer shows how the story will continue after Chadwick Boseman’s death



The new trailer for Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the sequel to “Black Panther,” takes fans on an emotional journey, paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman, who played King T’Challa, the titular hero in the 2018 film, died of colon cancer in August 2020 at 43. On Saturday, fans were treated to a first look at how the Marvel universe addresses Boseman’s absence from the movie.

In the two-minute clip, which was shown during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was clear that another actor would not replace Boseman as T’Challa, but that the film would focus on the other characters of the Marvel universe. Still, T’Challa’s presence is acutely felt throughout the trailer.

As the teaser begins, Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” plays as Lupita Nyong’o’s character Nakia appears on screen. As Queen Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett, gives an emotional speech, we see the image of T’Challa on a mural.

“I am queen of the most powerful nation in the world and now my entire family is gone. Have I not given everything?” she says.

“But why did this trailer just make me shed a tear ? … IMAGINE the actual movie !” one fan commented on YouTube.

“In just 2 minutes, I feel like I’ve just gone through every emotion,” commented another person. “One of them movies where it’s not just gonna be simply for our entertainment. But most of all… It’s for Him…”

“This looks amazing,” wrote another fan. “The cast looks like they’re giving everything for Chadwick. Rest In Peace.”

The trailer, which also introduces Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, gave more hints as to what we can expect from the new film. In one scene, we see a baby being born underwater and held up to the light. We feel a glimmer of hope as the trailer ends to the tune of Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.” Michaela Coel, Dominique Thorne, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli will also star in the upcoming film.

Many of the movie’s star spoke to Variety on the red carpet for Comic-Con about what it was like to make the movie without Boseman and how they hope to honor his memory.

“You just never knew when it was going to be a really hard day,” said Danai Gurira, who reprises her role as Okoye in the sequel, about making the film.

“There’s not a single day where I’m not thinking of him, and anytime we worked he was there. And he always will be there,” said Florence Kasumba, who reprises her role as Ayo, a member of the all-female Dora Milaje fighting squad.

“We felt his presence every single day and we felt the lack of having him there every single day,” said Winston Duke, who plays M’Baku. “He was a very powerful, gentle leader…With people like that, you feel them so much more when they’re not there.”

Ryan Coogler, who directed the first Black Panther film, returns to helm the sequel and appeared on the panel at Comic-Con to talk about the movie and pay tribute to the late star.

At the end of the panel, Coogler and the cast hugged it out, clearly overwhelmed by the emotions of the day.

Shannen Doherty says she’s ‘feeling great’ during ‘Charmed’ cast reunion at 90s Con



Shannen Doherty appeared at 90s Con this weekend, joining her former “Charmed” co-stars for a special reunion.

On March 18, fans of the hit ‘90s supernatural series attended a panel featuring cast members like Holly Marie Combs, Rose McGowan, Drew Fuller, Brian Krause and Dorian Gregory.

That’s 4 Entertainment, the company behind the annual event that features some of the biggest ‘90s stars, uploaded a video on its Instagram story of Doherty walking onto the stage and bringing Prue, Piper and Paige together. 

In the clip, the audience starts to cheer as Doherty embraces the “Charmed” cast. Doherty brings McGowan and Combs into a big group hug and asks the crowd, “I mean, is this not like a power of three or what?”

Doherty played Prue Halliwell in “Charmed,” the oldest of three sisters who are witches. McGowan’s Paige replaced Prue after Season Three.The WB

Prue, Piper and Alyssa Milano’s character, Phoebe, were the original “power of three” on the show. They played sisters who discovered they were powerful witches.

Doherty left “Charmed” after Season Three and was replaced in the trio by McGowan’s character, Paige.

During the panel, Doherty, who revealed that her breast cancer had returned as stage 4 in 2020, also shared a brief update on how she’s feeling. 

According to People, the 51-year-old actor was asked on stage how she was doing.

“I‘m feeling great, thank you! … This crowd is amazing!” she said. 

During the panel, she spoke about how she related to her character Prue and the eldest Halliwell’s strength. 

“Prue was a very, very, very strong woman. I was a really strong woman,” she told the audience, per People. “I played her as that. And I think that did have a definitive impression upon a lot of younger women who were watching the show, to grow up with that sort of inner strength and to help their families and take care of their families.”

She added, “We’re very much about empowering women and empowering women within the show.”

The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 before going into remission in 2017. Three years later, Doherty’s representative confirmed to that her breast cancer had returned.

Doherty opened up to People in 2021 about her diagnosis being a “part of life at this point.”

“I feel like I have a responsibility in my more public life, which I separate from my acting life … to talk about cancer and perhaps educate people more and let people know that people with stage 4 are very much alive and very active,” she told the outlet at the time. 

“My husband says that you would never know that I have cancer,” she continued, referring to photographer Kurt Iswarienko. “I never really complain. I don’t really talk about it. It’s part of life at this point.”

Since receiving her diagnosis, Doherty has used her platform to educate fans about the impact the disease has on the body. 

In October 2021, she uploaded photos to Instagram to document her breast cancer journey and the effects of chemotherapy treatment.

“For breast cancer awareness month, I’d like to share more of my own personal journey from my first diagnosis to my second,” she wrote in the caption. “Is it all pretty? NO but it’s truthful and my hope in sharing is that we all become more educated, more familiar with what cancer looks like.” 

She encouraged everyone reading her post to get mammograms and regular checkups. 

Doherty also said she would do simple things, like put on Cookie Monster pajamas, to cheer her up. She included a picture of her lying in the all-blue outfit in her post. 

“I looked ridiculous and in that ridiculousness, I was able to laugh at myself,” she wrote. “Finding humor helped get me thru what seemed impossible. I hope we all find humor in the impossible.”
