It’s been revealed that Black Panther 2 will be called Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which we think is a brilliant name for this upcoming sequel.
There have been rumours about what the film will be called.
There have also been a number of rumours surrounding how the film will handle Chadwick Boseman’s death.
Will Shuri end up becoming the next Black Panther? Possibly.
It sounds like the upcoming film, which will be directed and written by Ryan Coogler, will be focused on Wakanda.
Black Panther 2 is called Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Lupita Nyong’o revealed in a recent interview with Yahoo! that she, Ryan Coogler and co. have been busy trying to figure out how to move forward following the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman.
People will ask me, ‘Are you excited to go back?’ Excitement isn’t the word. I feel like I’m in a very pensive and meditative state when it comes to Black Panther 2. His passing is still extremely raw for me. And I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like to step on set and not have him there… But at the same time we have a leader in Ryan, who feels very much like we do, who feels the loss in a very, very real way as well. And his idea, the way which he has reshaped the second movie is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world. So it feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure.
Black Panther 2, or Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will be in cinemas (hopefully) on July 8th, 2022.
