We have all lost a great man, but his loss will be felt most prominently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Boseman’s presence has been an integral one for years now, and we will undoubtedly miss him greatly.
The first Black Panther movie is a masterpiece and the most successful superhero film in history. So fans are eagerly waiting for this sequel, titled “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.
Marvel Studios earlier revealed that they have been working on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The cast of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther movie is now starting to develop the sequel. They’re unsure what they’ll be able to do without Chad Boseman, who helped make their first record-breaking film and legacy-defining hit in 2018 with his portrayal as King T’Challa/Black Panther.
Black Panther 2 Release Date
The untimely passing of actor Boseman has delayed the release of his upcoming film.
The new instalment in this movie series was supposed to come out on May 6th 2022. But now with all these unfortunate events, we’re looking at July 8th 2022 instead. With an up-and-coming cast of stars, it looks like the Black Panther 2 has been put back on track and will be making its release date next year.
Black Panther 2 Cast
Director Ryan Coogler has officially confirmed that the upcoming sequel to Black Panther will not be recasting T’Challa and is keeping his legacy alive by making sure there are no plans for a digital double.
Kevin Feige said,
“Chadwick Boseman was an immensely talented actor and an inspirational individual who affected all of our lives professionally and personally. His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends any character iteration in any other medium from Marvel’s past. And it’s for that reason that we will not recast the character.”
“There’s only one Chadwick, and he’s not with us,” said Marvel Studios’ EVP Victoria Alonso. “Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honour this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible.”
The cast of Black Panther is set to reprise their roles for the sequel, which may be an exciting prospect.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Letitia Wright (Shuri), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Winston Duke(M’Baku) and Angela Bassett are all expected back as well. In addition, Tenoch Huerta and Michaela Coel have been cast in an as-yet-undisclosed role, though we might be able to guess who they’ll play.
