Now this Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness he’s got went to the movies and won huge numbers of ticketsMarvel fans of course look at what Marvel movies are coming Next. In the calendar for this fall, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is left, but are you sure? The movie barely wrapped production seven weeks ago, and its release is only six months away. Well, Disney CEO Bob Chapek has the details.
When the big Disney man talked about the future of the big screen studio and streaming for the rest of 2022, he confirmed that Wakanda Forever is very close to the end of the year. In his words:
During Disney’s most recent earnings call this week (via Comicbook.com), Bob Chapek made the point of sharing the other big titles for the next seven months of 2022. Together with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen returning to Star Wars universe for Obi-Wan Kenobi at Disney +, Pixar shuts down The history of games with Lightyear and James Cameron Avatar The sequel that is finally coming to theaters, Marvel fans can look forward to at least three more projects this year. And yes, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is one of them.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in progress since the end of 2018, a few months after the huge success of Ryan Coogler’s film, which became the first nominee for Marvel’s best film. In a tragic development, the protagonist of the film, Chadwick Boseman dies of colon cancer on August 28, 2020 at the age of 43 years. Therefore, a new design was created for Black panther sequel, and the film began shooting in the summer of 2021.
During production, Letitia Wright was also injured during the filming, leading to further delays. And yet, Wakanda Forever reportedly on track. Then there will also be Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Kaluuya, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, with additions such as Michaela Coel and Dominque Thorne.
It’s weird to imagine what Black Panther 2 will be without Chadwick Boseman, but according to Danai Gurira, the film is “all about Chadwick” and honors, and we would imagine, T’Challa. Marvel has made that clear T’Challa will not be reworded or return digitally, and instead the film will focus on other Wakanda characters, such as Winston Duke’s M’Baku, who is said to be plays a much more important role then.
It’s great news to learn that we will be back in Wakanda in six months. It will be almost four whole years since we witnessed the first Black panther movie when Wakanda Forever opens in theaters on November 11.
