The second part of Black Panther It is already in the process of filming. The new movie about Marvel’s superhero is called Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Y has a great emotional charge, as its original protagonist, Chadwick Boseman, died last year, aged 43.
Now from the Marvel Studios film set some images were leaked that advance the tribute that the actor will receive, who died suddenly from colon cancer on August 28, 2020. With his unexpected death, the character was left without a goodbye to match.
In the video you can see the throne room of King T’Challa with a detail that pays tribute to the fallen hero, with an inscription on the pillars that surround the room that was not in the first part.
What the fans interpret
According to the interpretation of some Marvel fans who translated the native language of Wakanda, in which the phrase is written, what can be read says: “Rest in power, King T’Challa, our hero. It has been an honor. Wakanda forever“.
Although the message is fragmented, clearly alludes to the early disappearance of the character and also to that of the actor, in a double tribute full of nostalgia for Boseman and his unforgettable performance.
But Marvel prepares something extra for fans of Chadwick Boseman. This is the animated series ‘What if…?’ , for which the actor made a recording of his voice playing T’Challa in an alternate reality in which he became Star Lord instead of Peter Quill. This aural memory will premiere on August 12.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever awaits its official premiere on July 8, 2022, again directed by Ryan Coogler, who is also the screenwriter with Joe Robert Cole.
For its part, the rest of the cast is the same as in the first part: Lupita Nyong’o will play Nakia again; Danai Gurira also reprises her role as warrior Okoye, as does Letitia Wright, who returns as Princess Shuri; Martin Freeman as Agent Everett K. Ross, Winston Duke as M’Baku, and Angela Bassett as the Queen Mother Ramonda.

This sequel is also joined by Michaela Coel in a still unconfirmed role and the Mexican Tenoch Huerta, who according to rumors could play Namor, the king of Atlantis. This way, Huerta would make his presentation in the Marvel Universe like the great nemesis of Wakanda.
After the shock of the entire production team by the death of Boseman, the studio carried out the sequel in which, according to what is known so far from the script, T’Challa will disappear from history since they decided not to replace him with another actor or create a digital version.
“There is only one Chadwick and he is no longer with us.”Marvel Studios Executive Vice President Victoria Alonso said when the actor died. “Our king has sadly died in real life, not just fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we go back to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, actually. “
Therefore, in this second part, the story will go to the past of Wakanda. When T’Challa passes to the astral plane, he meets not only his father, T’Chaka, but also ancient Black Panthers who have reigned over Wakanda for centuries.
