Since Black Panther premiered in February 2018, fans have been looking for a sequel. In 2022, they will finally make their wish come true. 

It is clear that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be very different from the first movie. After Chadwick Boseman died of colon cancer at the age of 43 in August 2020, the filmmakers had to rethink how the sequel would work without his character, T` Challa. 

In December 2020, Disney announced that a new actor would not be hired to take on the role, adding that the new film would focus on other characters from the world of Wakanda. Non-fiction where T'Challa is king. 

"Honoring Chadwick Boseman's legacy and T'Challa's portrayal, @MarvelStudios will not reprise the character, but explore the world of Wakanda and the rich characters introduced in the first film", the company tweeted. 

Marvel CEO Victoria Alonso also said the studio has no plans to digitally recreate the Boseman image for the film. 

“There is only one Chadwick and he is not with us,” she told the Argentine website, Clarin, in November 2020. “Unfortunately, our king passed away in real life, not just in the cottage. theory and we took the time to see how we continued the story and what we did to honor this chapter of what happened to us was so unexpected, so painful, and so terrible.

Ryan Coogler, who signed on to write and direct the sequel after directing and co-writing the first, thinks Boseman will want everyone involved in the franchise to continue without him. 

"I knew Chad wouldn't want us to stop," he told The Hollywood Reporter in March 2021. "He's a very collective person. Black Panther is his movie. He was hired to play this role before anyone else thought before I was hired, before any female. which actor to hire.

Lupita Nyong `` o, who played Nakia in the first film and will reprise the role for the November 2022 film, agreed with the director. "It will be different, of course, without our king returning to this world, but I know we are all determined to recreate or continue our legacy in this new Black Panther," the Oscar-winning actor said in March 2021 appearance on Good Morning America." And Ryan Coogler has some really, really cool ideas that I can't wait to see.

After announcing the first trailer in July 2022 at San Diego Comic-Con, he made it clear that the film's characters would mourn T'Challa's death in the sequel. Actress Okoye  Danai Gurira said it was important to honor the legacy of the actor and character.

“The most important thing, of course, was honoring our brother, our leader, and our king,” Gurira told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “That was definitely at the forefront of our minds and our spirits and our hearts. There was this amazing impact that the first Black Panther had, so the need, I think, was to really solidify that these characters and this world have an arc. It wasn’t a one-time momentous thing.”
