In the course of Disney’s investor day presentation on Thursday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige verified that the up coming Black Panther movie will “honor the legacy” of the late Chadwick Boseman and not recast the character.
A Black Panther sequel has been in the performs considering the fact that virtually immediately right after the initially film hit theaters in 2018, with Ryan Coogler immediately signing on to generate and immediate the second film. But ideas for Black Panther 2 had been set into question right after Boseman’s devastating loss of life before this calendar year, at the age of 43. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has recast its superhero roles before, like Mark Ruffalo taking over from Edward Norton as the Hulk and Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard as War Equipment, but Marvel lovers ended up fast to denounce the notion of recasting T’Challa, citing Boseman’s effective overall performance.
The sequel is scheduled to strike theaters on July 8, 2022.
It continues to be to be observed how Marvel will go on Black Panther’s tale, with the sequel reportedly commencing generation in summer 2021. Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett are predicted to return for the new film, while their participation has still to be verified. (In the comics, T’Challa’s sister Shuri, played by Wright, usually takes more than from her brother as the ruler of Wakanda and sooner or later takes up the Black Panther mantle herself.)
