Black Panther II: After the tragic passing of star Chadwick Boseman, Marvel Studios would be within their rights to draw a line under the Black Panther franchise completely, and permit T’Challa’s first standalone outing to measure on as a permanent monument to the legacy of the person under the mask.
With over $1.3 billion at the box office, an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and a reputation as a landmark of both popular culture and representation in blockbuster cinema, it might certainly be a fitting tribute.
However, the subsequent few months will see many conversations happening behind the scenes between Kevin Feige, director Ryan Coogler and therefore the returning cast and crew, with the sequel originally scheduled to start out shooting next March so as to satisfy the May 2022 release date.
In fact, Boseman was so determined to defeat the illness that took his life that he was set to start training for his return during a matter of weeks.
According to the movie plot, the plan at the instant is for T’Challa to be written out of Black Panther 2 before the story starts as he’ll apparently die off-screen. Shuri will then assume the mantle and become Wakanda’s new protector on a permanent basis.
However, the film itself will little question look to pay reference to an actor that inspired a generation and convinced them that they might be heroes.
It might seem that the studio feels that creating a movie capable of honoring the legacy of what Chadwick Boseman delivered to the role is that the most poignant tribute that they will give him.
Black Panther II
Black Panther II (2022) is a sequel to the 2018 film, Black Panther. It’s the 13th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first film of Phase Five.
How can there be a sequel to the 2018 blockbuster without the acclaimed actor? Chadwick’s death is so devastating it feels like a betrayal of his memory to even consider a film without him.
On August 28, 2020, Chadwick Boseman, died of colon cancer before production even began. He had been set to reprise his role as the titular character in Black Panther II.
Nevertheless, Ther will be a sequel to the Blck Panther film.
