Speculations about the date the trailer for the sequel to Black Panther would be released appeared to suggest fans would get a first look at the film very soon.
However, this doesn't seem to be the case. Asad Ayaz, in charge of marketing for Disney, promptly shut down a rumour circulating online, claiming the trailer would be released during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, which takes place tomorrow (June 10).
"Inaccurate," Ayaz simply tweeted, crushing fans' hope to get a glimpse of the second movie this week.
While it isn't clear when we'll finally be able to take a look at Wakanda Forever, it isn't unlikely for the trailer to debut during the NBA finals, running through to June 19.
In 2017, the trailer for the first Black Panther film was shown during the finals, so it's entirely possible Disney could go for that strategy again.
The sequel will honour the legacy of Black Panther's late star Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020 after battling colon cancer.
In January 2021, it was revealed that Boseman's T'Challa wouldn't be recast nor would the sequel feature a CGI version of the actor.
Earlier this year, Wakanda Forever star Letitia Wright teased the sequel, saying: "We honoured [Boseman] by committing ourselves to the story that he started, the legacy that he started with this franchise."
Wright will be reprising the role of T'Challa's sister Shuri, alongside returning stars Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o, Daniel Kaluuya, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a release date of November 11, 2022. The first movie is streaming now on Disney+.
