Black Panther 2 promotion spotted in cinemas ahead of first trailer

There are only two Marvel Studios films left in the year. First up is that of Chris Hemsworth Thor: Love and Thunder, which seems to be a colourful, fun and terrifying adventure thanks to Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. Then comes the long awaited Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverin which Letitia Wright’s Shuri will play a bigger role, Riri Williams joins the MCU squad, and the progressive nation takes on one of its greatest threats: Namor.

Namor has long been known as one of Black Panther’s greatest enemies. His underwater nation is his everything – both the city and the people he protects. Tenoch Huerta, the man who will bring the character to life, recently revealed how he started learning a Mayan language for the role; a level of dedication befitting the Marvel personality he is meant to embody.

Just weeks ago, a rumor suggested that the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was scheduled to land sometime during game four of the 2022 NBA Finals on Friday, June 10. Unfortunately, those hopes were dashed because Disney’s marketing president, Asah Ayaz, debunked those reports.

Now it looks like fans can find hope again. Maybe.

First Black Panther 2 promotion spotted in the wild

Thanks to a new video posted on Twitter by user @StanOficial shows a theater worker putting up a promotional stand for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at a Cinemark location in California.

This is the first legitimate sign that the sequel’s marketing campaign is about to begin, suggesting that a trailer for the Letitia Wright-led film is on the horizon.

Unfortunately, the poster on display isn’t the most exciting piece of artwork to market the upcoming sequel. After all, it’s just an enlarged version of the movie logo that’s been floating around the web for months.

When will the first trailer be released?

When it comes to the average time window between an MCU film’s first trailer and release date, past examples show that it can range from 142 to 204 days. As of this writing, it’s 148 days until Wakanda forever ends up in the cinemas.

It’s certainly not code-red yet. Spider-Man: No Way Home only got its first teaser after 116 days. and tHor: Love and Thunder holds the record at 92 days.

When it comes to Black Panther 2it’s also in a unique location where some lucky convention-goers have already broadcast some footage – which wasn’t possible either No way home or love and thunder.

So when can fans expect to see an actual trailer in the wild? A good bet would be that it lands in the next two weeks so it can play alongside Chris Hemsworth’s latest Thor Movie on July 8th.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on November 11th.
