The official title and release date for the highly anticipated ‘Black Panther‘ sequel were revealed Monday in a mega trailer celebrating Marvel movies.
A Black Panther sequel has been in the works almost immediately after the first film hit theatres in 2018, with Ryan Coogler quickly signing on to write and direct the second film. Plans for Black Panther 2 were put on hold as questions were being asked after Boseman’s devastating death at the age of 43. Boseman died last August after a private battle with colon cancer.
Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke and Daniel Kaluuya are expected to return. Although their participation has yet to be confirmed. In the movie, T’Challa’s sister Shuri, played by Wright, takes over from her brother as the ruler of Wakanda and eventually takes up the Black Panther mantle herself.
Black Panther 2 ‘Wakanda Forever’ will be out in summer 2022.
