Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

If there are no further delays, Black Panther 2 should be in theatres by the end of this year.

The eagerly awaited MCU sequel resumed production in January 2022 and was completed in March 2022 after another week-long delay brought on by Covid. Letitia Wright needed time to heal from an on-set accident, which is why the show took a pause from November 2021 to January 2022.

The name Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for the sequel was officially announced in May 2021. The sequel is scheduled to open in theatres in November 2022 after experiencing a few delays from its initial May 2022 release, and everything appears to be on track for that.

Since Chadwick Boseman’s untimely death in August 2020, it will be the first time we have visited Wakanda again. Everyone working on the sequel is eager to make sure it honours the late actor.

When is Black Panther Wakanda Forever released?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now be released in theatres on November 11, 2022, following the delay in October 2021.

The sequel now airs in July 2023, replacing The Marvels, which was originally scheduled for July 2022. This is a four-month delay. We hope that this will be the final shift for the film, but nothing is definite at this point.

Although filming began in June 2021, there was a break from November 2021 to January 2022, as was already indicated. However, filming ended in March 2022 and production began again in January 2022, so perhaps it will be released in November.

Who will return for Black Panther Wakanda Forever from the cast of Black Panther 2?

It has been announced that the sequel won’t recast the part of T’Challa in order to preserve Chadwick Boseman’s legacy. Also thankfully, there are no plans to employ a “digital duplicate” in the follow-up.

Victoria Alonso, EVP of Marvel Studios, stated that there is only one Chadwick and he is not present.

Unfortunately, our king has passed away in real life as well as in fiction. We are taking some time to consider how we can honour this chapter of what has occurred to us that was so unexpected, sad, and truly dreadful.

Kevin Feige also said “A location to further explore with characters and many subcultures is Wakanda. This has always been, and initially was, the main subject of the following tale. We won’t be using CG Chadwick, and T’Challa won’t be recast either.”

As Shuri, Nakia, M’Baku, Okoye, Ramonda, and M’Kathu, respectively, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, and Danny Sapani all reprise their roles in the sequel.

While Tenoch Huerta, star of the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico, is expected to play one of the sequel’s villains—apparently Namor—Duke is reportedly poised to receive a “increased role” in the film.

Jordan played Killmonger in an alternate reality in a reprise of his What If? character. But when questioned in January 2022 about a potential MCU comeback, he remained guarded about the idea.

He explained, “It’s a character in a world that I adore so much. “The future? Marvel, as we all know, has its own plans, goals, and ideas about how things will turn out.”

I May Destroy You actress Michaela Coel, whose part has not yet been revealed, and If Beale Street Could Talk star Dominique Thorne, who plays Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, are new additions to the cast.

What happens in Black Panther Wakanda Forever in Black Panther 2?

The sequel’s focus will have to change now that it is certain that T’Challa won’t be recast, and the only thing we are certain of with certainty is that it will continue to explore Wakanda and its surroundings.

Although the sequel’s actual narrative hasn’t been revealed, it appears that our next trip to Wakanda will involve spending time with a variety of personalities and learning more about the “mythology” of the country.

Namor, an aquatic adversary, will appear in Wakanda Forever, it has been revealed. Official storyline information have now surfaced via Production Weekly.

The information stated that Wakanda and Atlantis were both secretive civilizations with cutting-edge technology and enhanced military might that made the decision to isolate themselves from the rest of the world for their own safety—and perhaps even out of fear.

We may anticipate more historical flashbacks to explain how Wakanda came to be the place we saw in the first movie as Kevin Feige had previously mentioned that he planned to explore more Wakandan history in the sequel.

“When T’Challa consumes the herb again toward the end of the film, he runs into his father and says, “Hey, man. I think we made a mistake and I want to fix it “He spoke to Entertainment Weekly in March of this year.
