One of the highest-grossing Marvel movies that weren’t an Avengers installment is Black Panther. After Chadwick Boseman’s untimely death in 2020, the production company had to make hasty adjustments to the sequel’s script.
After its presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios published the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is planned to be released on November 11, 2022. Fans still have many unanswered questions regarding the film because so much information is being kept under wraps.
The release date of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been pushed back from October 2021 to November 11th, 2022. Movie posters for Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman, Hulk, Captain America, and Avengers: Infinity War
This is a delay of four months, from July 2022 to January 2023, and the sequel will replace The Marvels, which has been rescheduled for July 2023. Nothing is fixed in stone, but we’re hoping this is the last time the movie will be changed.
Production kicked off in June 2021, however as was indicated above, it was put on hold from November 2021 until January 2022. The filming was completed in March 2022, and production resumed in January 2022, so perhaps the November 2022 release date will be met.
Wakanda’s Cast of Stars Will Never Die
- Since Chadwick Boseman will no longer be able to play Shuri (the Princess of Wakanda) in the upcoming Marvel film, Letitia Wright will take over the role. In the first movie, he played T’Challa, the protagonist.
- Other cast members include Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross, CIA), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Machaela Coel (Aneka), Tenoch Huerta (Namor), and Dominique Thorne (Riri Williams, Ironheart), among others.
- Not only will the aforementioned actors play crucial roles in the film, but also Isaach De Bankole, Dorothe Steel, Danny Sapani, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livinalli.
The film will also serve as an introduction to the lead character of a forthcoming television series in the MCU. Ironheart (Riri Williams) will make her live-action debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, as Kevin Feige confirmed(opens in new tab) in August 2021.
The part has been cast to Dominique Thorne, and we may expect to see her don an armored costume reminiscent of that worn by Iron Man.
A notion that Ironheart is Killmonger’s daughter began circulating online in May, but Marvel insider Greatphase(opens in new tab) has since shot that theory down.
T’Challa’s best buddy and Okoye’s partner, W’Kabi, played by Daniel Kaluuya, will not be returning. Rotten Tomatoes’ Jacqueline Coley(opens in new tab) confirms that Kaluuya was unable to return due to his commitments filming Jordan Peele’s Nope.
Since then, he has stated to Variety(opens in new tab) that the decision to leave W’Kabi out was “optimal for the tale.” Michael B. Jordan, who played the villain Erik Killmonger in Black Panther (2018), is also rumored to not be returning.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told CinemaBlend(opens in new tab) that rumors of Jordan’s comeback are “all rumor and speculation” and that “nothing is set yet in any form,” despite the fact that Killmonger died (though this has never stopped a character’s return to the MCU).
In response to Jess Cagle’s question on Sirius XM(opens in new tab) regarding the chances of a Killmonger comeback, Jordan rated it a “1” (never) on a scale from 0 (10) “A solid two is all I can muster at this point.
The idea of starting over at zero terrified me. I can’t see into the future, so I shouldn’t rule anything out.”
Charles Murphy, a Marvel leaker (opens in new tab), has hinted that Killmonger will be back. We won’t say when or where Jordan’s Killmonger will show up, but fellow insider Greatphase(opens in new tab) says he will.
Julia’s Louis character, Dreyfus’s Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, is mentioned by name by Charles Murphy(opens in new tab), who also implies her appearance. Is she going to try to enlist one of Wakanda’s or Talocan’s otherworldly beings?
At long last, there are whispers that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of a significant antagonist.
