Little is known about Marvel’s Black Panther sequel, other from the now-confirmed November 2022 release date. Thanks to star Danai Gurira, we now know a little bit more about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. While walking the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala, Gurira made rare comments on the sequel, which wrapped filming in March. “We threw all we had into it,” The Walking Dead actor added after an emotional beat.
After their leading man, Chadwick Boseman, died from colon cancer in August 2020, just months before starting the sequel, the Black Panther cast and crew, including director Ryan Coogler, were faced with the impossible job of carrying on with the film. Gurira, who plays Okoye, the Dora Milaje’s general in Black Panther, stated, “It tells a really heartbreaking story.” “I’m at a loss for words!” There’s no indication on if or how Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa will be written out of the movie. However, Gurira’s admission that the story will be “heart wrenching” is one of the few signs we’ve had that the cast and crew’s sadness may be mirrored on screen in some way.
