Marvel Studios unveiled the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever—set to “No Woman No Cry”—to fans at Comic-Con on Saturday in San Diego.

It was just one part of the massive Hall H presentation, which also included first-looks at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and new information about Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will conclude with two Avengers movies in 2025: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler was on site in San Diego to preview the highly anticipated film, which is due to arrive in theaters on November 11 and serve as the conclusion to Phase 4. Coogler paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020.

“The impact that he made on this industry will be felt forever,” Coogler said.

After the massive success of Black Panther in 2018, plans for a sequel were quickly set into motion. But those were altered after Boseman’s unexpected death from colon cancer. The studio said it would not recast Boseman’s role of T’Challa. but very little has come out about the film in the years since. Production wrapped in March after several delays, one of which was due to an injury sustained by Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s brainy sister Shuri. Also returning are Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett, but not Daniel Kaluuya, whose Nope schedule conflicted.

Phase 5, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said, will kick off in February with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and conclude with Thunderbolts in July 2024. The new Blade, starring Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, also got a release date of November 3, 2023, and Captain America and the New World Order, featuring Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, will hit theaters on May 3, 2024.

The Guardians of the Galaxy will also come to an end in the midst of Phase 5 in May. Director James Gunn showed up in San Diego to confirm that Vol. 3 would be the last for the space rogues. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian and Dave Bautista are all returning for the film. New cast members include Will Poulter, as Guardians adversary Adam Warlock, and Maria Bakalova.

Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Jonathan Majors and director Peyton Reed made the trip to San Diego to show some footage from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Phase 6 will launch with a new Fantastic Four movie on November 8, 2024, and finish with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, set for May 2, 2025, followed by Avengers: Secret Wars, on November 7, 2025. AP

Cooking fate and contradictions in ‘Makanai’

YOUNG girls cooking for other young girls ruled by women who are ruled by men—that should describe Kore-eda Hirokazu’s The Makanai: Cooking for the Maiko House. But that is not fair to this series, which evokes almost a lost era even when we are reminded that all these events are happening now. There is more density to a narrative that attempts to describe this phenomenon of maiko or geiko, which, when articulated, should be framed within one of the most contentious cultural phenomena in Japanese society: the geisha. Japanologists would tell you the geisha is the most misunderstood being in Japanese culture, second only if not equal to the samurai. Which brings us to the immediate crisis—Makanai the series could suffer through similar contentions. Or misunderstanding.
