Chadwick Boseman’s Effects on The Sequel is Discussed in a Featurette for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Hits theatres on November 11.


With Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, we will return to Wakanda in one month. While anticipation is high, there is also a sense of melancholy as the film’s cast, and Chadwick Boseman devotees look forward to paying tribute to his memory with the anticipated sequel. The cast and director Ryan Coogler discuss the late actor’s legacy and his desire to “inspire the world” with Black Panther in a new featurette.

In August 2020, Boseman passed away from cancer. According to a statement from Marvel Studios, the King T’Challa replacement would not be cast. The story will instead go in-depth into the mysterious continent of Wakanda. Boseman’s close friend and film director Ryan Coogler described the late actor as his “artistic partner” in the following way: “I would spend time with him, just he and I, talking about where we would want to see the story go, how much he admired the other characters and the actors that portrayed them.” The actress who portrays Queen Ramonda in the Wakanda Forever trailers and the mother of T’Challa and Shuri believes that the public has embraced Wakanda and Black Panther and that director Chadwick “knew exactly what this story, what these images meant to the world.”


The country will be mourning in the upcoming film, but it will also be preparing to take on new challenges and forge a new path for the kingdom. It was emotional to return to Wakanda and for the cast and crew to be able to “do it with a sense of celebration,” according to Lupita Nyong’o, who plays the war-dog Nakia. While the possibility of a new Black Panther looms large, the trailers suggest that Wakanda is vulnerable due to its opening to the outside world and is, above all, attempting to safeguard Vibranium from falling into the wrong hands. Shuri’s actress Letitia Wright comments on a different conflict: “This movie has a lot going on. It’s amazing. So many new characters to explore. Just seeing the world of Wakanda again, and then we’re going to this new world underwater.”


In the new film, fans will delve deeply into Talocan, the kingdom of Namor the Submariner. In the upcoming movie, the MCU will introduce its first mutant, revered as a god by his people. Coogler asserts: “Introducing Namor, a part we were thrilled to play in the movie. Perhaps one of the first comic book characters ever created.” Namor and his army undoubtedly appear formidable. In Wakanda Forever, he is indeed an anti-hero, even though he isn’t the main antagonist. The latter is upset that Wakanda’s opening to the outside world made his kingdom vulnerable. Actor Tenoch Huerta, who plays Namor, calls getting the chance to portray a role like this “a dream.”

Wakanda’s first line of defense is the Dora Milaje, which will also include new characters. Okoye’s Dania Gurira says: “How meticulously this story was written is amazing. As a result, it appeared as though we were all giving it our all.” Bassett claimed that the actors were “filled with emotions and passion,” and they channeled those feelings into something special. Nyong’o added that “things are happening up, down, everywhere” because the action and adventure involve such high emotional stakes. However, Wright is enthusiastic about “honoring Chad. He wanted the world to be inspired by us, “She uttered.
