Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Marvel fans have waited 4 years for a sequel on one of the most loved superheroes of all time, Black Panther. A week ago Marvel released the official teaser trailer for Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever. Not only does the trailer look amazing, but it the way it was edited is out of this world.

They decided to focus the trailer on music and sound design. Only at the very end you get a few very strong dialogue lines and that’s it. Really transporting you into their world and getting you hyped to see this movie.

As most of you know Black Panther’s powers are superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, etc. And together with their ability to use a Vibranium suit and equipment it shapes the hero to who they are. That is why we looked for an iconic move that combines both.

In The Avengers Infinity War we get to see Black Panther jumping over an army, when landing he releases a big energy blast making those enemy’s fly away. And this seem complicated but in reality its actually quite simple to recreate.

The jumping up and over can be done with some simple masking out of the talent and animating them to enhance their movement. The energy blast does require a bit more work but still is fairly easy to achieve. you can use an animated noise as its base which you turn transparent and purple. You can add a glow for the brightest parts of it and give its dome like shape with the cc sphere effect.
