By now you must have heard about black panther 2 and the black panther 2 trailer that has been trending, just like sqid game season 2 , almost everybody is waiting for the next release of black panther. these are the few things you should know before the day comes.
The production of Black Panther 2, also known as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, has been halted, but don’t worry too much because the film’s release date has been pushed back.
In November 2021, Marvel announced that filming would be halted until January 2022, giving Letitia Wright time to heal from an on-set injury. Wright had a “critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with significant side effects” as a result of the accident, which occurred during a trick in August 2021.
The extended pause will allow the star to fully heal, and Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Nate Moore stated in a note to cast and crew that production will resume in January 2022.
“We’re all focused on completing the film to the highest possible standard, honoring our dear brother Chadwick’s memory in the process,” they stated.
The sequel will be the first time we’ve seen Wakanda since Chadwick Boseman’s untimely death in August 2020, and everyone involved in the production is working hard to make sure it pays honor to the late actor.
“Everyone felt Chadwick’s presence and missed him on that throne the first week of shooting,” Angela Bassett, who will reprise her role as T’Challa’s mother Ramonda, said.
“But before we started, we all gathered together and just paid homage to him, which was fantastic… everyone just saying lovely things about him and expressing how much we care and how he informed and inspired us.”
Even before the filming interruption, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had been moved back to November 2022 as a result of Marvel’s current release date shuffle, which was solely due to impending MCU movie production schedules.
We don’t know how the sequel will deal with Boseman’s untimely death (though he won’t be digitally rebuilt), but there’s enough of fresh information to enjoy as we wait for the film’s arrival next year.
Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about Black Panther 2, also known as Wakanda Forever.
Black Panther 2 Cast: Who’s coming back for Black Panther Wakanda Forever?
It has been announced that the sequel will honor Chadwick Boseman’s legacy by not recasting T’Challa. Thankfully, there are no intentions in the sequel to deploy a ‘digital double.’
“There’s only one Chadwick, and he’s not with us,” Marvel Studios’ executive vice president Victoria Alonso remarked. “Unfortunately, our king has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we’re taking some time to consider how we return to history and what we can do to honor this chapter of our history that was so unexpected, so traumatic, and so dreadful, actually,” says the narrator.
“The world of Wakanda is so much of the comics and that first movie,” Kevin Feige remarked. Wakanda is a place where you can learn more about characters and subcultures. The next story’s principal focus was always and initially this. There will be no CG Chadwick, and T’Challa will not be recast.”
Shuri, Nakia, M’Baku, Okoye, and Ramonda will all be played by Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett in the sequel.
Wright is expected to have a “more important part” in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, while Tenoch Huerta of Narcos: Mexico is in talks to play one of the sequel’s villains.
Although it is unknown whether Daniel Kaluuya will reprise his role as W’Kabi, Martin Freeman will reprise his role as CIA operative Everett Ross.
Is Michael B Jordan set to reprise his role as Killmonger? Given that Killmonger was murdered off in the first film, it’s doubtful, but strange things have happened.
Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You) and Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk) have joined the cast as Riri Williams, whose role has yet to be established.
Ryan Coogler is returning to write and film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and he’ll be joined by the original creative team.
Black Panther 2 release date: When is Black Panther Wakanda Forever released?
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now be released in theaters on November 11, 2022, following a postponement in October 2021.
That’s a four-month jump from July 2022, and the sequel replaces The Marvels, which has been pushed back to February 17, 2023. While nothing is etched in stone, we are hopeful that this will be the film’s final move.
Filming began in June 2021, although, as previously stated, it is presently on hold until January 2022. It was supposed to wrap production in November 2021 before the interruption, so perhaps there won’t be too much left when it returns.
In a statement to cast and crew, Feige, Moore, and D’Esposito wrote, “We are excited to share Black Panther: Wakanda Forever with the world, certain that the hurdles we have surmounted together as a team will make the picture even more profound.”
Black Panther 2 plot: What’s Black Panther Wakanda Forever about?
Now that we know for certain that T’Challa will not be recast, the sequel’s focus will have to shift, and all we know for certain is that it will continue to explore Wakanda and beyond.
The first set photo doesn’t reveal much other than the fact that we’re really excited.
Although narrative details for the sequel have yet to be revealed, it appears that our next trip to Wakanda will find us spending time with a variety of individuals while delving deeper into Wakanda’s “mythology.”
With official narrative information now emerging via Production Weekly, it’s been announced that Wakanda Forever will feature the aquatic villain Namor.
“Both Wakanda and Atlantis are hidden civilisations with sophisticated technology and expanded militaristic powers that choose to segregate themselves from the rest of the world for their own safety, and in some ways, out of fear,” according to the description.
Kevin Feige mentioned that he wants to dig deeper into Wakandan history in the sequel, which may be an option if they choose to make it a prequel instead.
“Towards the end of the film, T’Challa uses the herb once more and runs into his father, who says, ‘Hey, man.’ He told Entertainment Weekly, “We’ve kind of screwed up, and I want to fix it.”
“There’s a point where all of T’Chaka’s ancestors gather around him. ‘I want to see… what’s their story?’ we’d joke. What’s the backstory to the story? Who was Bashenga, Wakanda’s first king? Behind T’Chaka, who’s the third from the left? What happened to them in Wakanda in 1938? That would be fantastic.’
“It all starts with a simple discussion.” The more people who want to watch these stories, the more opportunity we’ll have to go through time and space.”
The Black Panther trailer: Any Black Panther Wakanda Forever footage?
With filming on hold and the release date pushed back to November 2022, we don’t expect to see anything anytime soon, so prepare to wait. Sorry for the inconvenience.
