When asked what makes her character Titania tick during the She-Hulk panel, The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil said, “Jealously and a desperate need for attention.”

There were also appearances by Secret Wars actress Colbie Smolders, Paul Rudd, Jonathan Majors, several members of the Guardian of the Galaxy cast and a surprise visit by the High Evolutionary himself.

But, none of these panels were more emotionally impactful than the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Film director Ryan Coogler was ushered in by a breathtaking performance by Baaba Maal, singer; Massamba Diop, percussionist; and a host of talented drummers and dancers.

After Coogler took a moment for the memory of Chadwick Boseman, he helped to welcome the cast to the stage including Tenoch Huerta (Namor) and Dominique Thorne (Riri Williams). 

Thorne talks about the emotional and spiritual impact of the film.

Huerta discussed the importance of inclusion and its impact on children. 

The Wakanda Forever trailer was a powerful reminder of the impact the first film had on Black culture. And if one could when an Oscar for a clip from a trailer, they should go ahead and hand it over to Angela Bassett. The music starts with a soulful cover of “No Woman No Cry” and builds to Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.” This was the perfect punctuation for the Marvel Studios panel, and the film will be the perfect end for phase four.
