But on December 10, 2020, the official Disney+ Twitter confirmed plans for the next installment, tweeting, “Black Panther 2, opening July 8, 2022, is being written & directed by Ryan Coogler.

Black Panther 2 has had a long road to the screen.

Production initially launched in June 2020, but after Boseman’s unexpected death, the cast and crew reworked the initial sequel script.

On June 29, 2021, ahead of the movie’s initial July 2022 release date, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, Kevin Feige, told variety that production for the sequel had officially begun once more. Feige spoke to the outlet at the Black Widow global fan event in Los Angeles and said, “It’s clearly very emotional without Chad, but everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We’re going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud.”

according to the HHollywood Reporter, production was meant to begin in March 2021 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which similarly stalled the release of several other Phase 4 Marvel projects. Numerous other delays throughout production stalled further progress on Wakanda Forevermost of them due to positive COVID tests or on-set injuries.

So far, there have been five different versions of the script.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in July 2021, Angela Bassett, who plays Queen Mother Ramonda, revealed that the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie script was up in the air as the cast and crew continue to film in Atlanta. “I don’t know what it’s going to look like at all,” Bassett told the outlet. “There have been about five incarnations of the script, and I hear another one’s coming.

“Of course, with our dear king [Boseman] going on to glory, a lot of things had to be shifted and changed. So thankfully, [director] Ryan [Coogler] and [writer] Joe Robert Cole, they’re just such masterful storytellers that they’ve found a way into this world and it will be satisfying, I hope, for the fans, and it will be honorable of our Chad. We love our king,” Bassett explained.

T’Challa will not be recast.

After Boseman’s death in August, the future of T’Challa’s role in the franchise was in flux. per THR, no one at Marvel was aware of the actor’s private cancer battle, which he only revealed to a tight-knit circle of people. A source close to Boseman told the outlet up until his death, he believed that he would recover and shoot the sequel. Disney has now confirmed that T’Challa will not be recast and that instead the character will be honored in another, yet-to-be-revealed way.

The original cast is welcoming multiple new members.

Many of the actors from 2018’s Black Panther will return for the sequel. These include Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Letita Wright as Shuri (in a more major role, per THR), Winston Duke as M’Baku, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, and Angela Bassett as Queen Mother Ramonda. Less likely to reprise his role is Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, as that character met his demise in the first movie. (However, death rarely lasts long in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.)

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter in November 2020 that Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico, Specter) would reportedly play one of the film’s antagonists (now revealed as Namor, the Aquaman-like underwater superhero). And while speculation about Rihanna joining Wakanda has not been substantiated, there work reason to celebrate as another major name was announced in July 2021: I May Destroy You‘s Michaela Coel joined the productionper variety. Her presence alone is enough to cast an even stronger glow of prestige around the highly anticipated follow-up.
