Filming for “Black Panther 2” has Kicked off – Debut expected on July 8, 2022
On Tuesday, work on “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the sequel to the Oscar-winning “Black Panther,” began at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.
Before the Black Widow Global Fan Event in Los Angeles, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed the news to Variety.
The premise of the sequel is still a closely kept secret, but Feige claims that everyone from the first ensemble will return – excluding the late Chadwick Boseman. The stars include Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett.
“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” Feige said before the “Black Widow” Global Fan Event in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. “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.”
Ryan Coogler, the director of “Black Panther,” is also returning to direct from his own script. Boseman passed away on August 28, 2020, due to complications from colon cancer.
On July 8, 2022, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will be released.
