Disney has announced that production on the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has now begun at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.
Ryan Coogler will be returning to direct the “Black Panther” sequel, and the majority of the original cast will be returning, except for Chadwick Boseman, who died last year after a four year battle with colon cancer.
Recent, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed this during an interview with Variety at the “Black Widow” Global Fan Event in Los Angeles.
“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.”
Disney hasn’t yet revealed how it will be dealing with the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, but is expected to explore the country of Wakanda and its people. With Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, and Daniel Kaluuya all reprising their roles. Along with Tenoch Huerta, although his role hasn’t been confirmed, but there are rumours that he is playing Namor the Submariner.
