Honoring King T’Challa and Chadwick Boseman’s legacy, Black Panther 2 will give us a deeper view into the beautiful world of Wakanda. The official Twitter handle for Marvel Studio’s Black Panther tweeted the same on December 19, 2020. While Marvel recently confirmed that they will not be replacing Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in 2020, the movie will explore the rich and varied characters of Wakanda, that were introduced in the first movie.
The demise of Chadwick Boseman was a shock to many. Marvel Studios had plans to have the late actor reprise the role in Black Panther 3, a project they were already working towards. Without the brilliance of Boseman, the fate of King T’Challa in Black Panther 3 is yet to be determined. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is Chadwick Boseman’s last movie. Also starring Viola Davis, the movie released on Netflix on December 18, 2020.
Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who was behind Black Panther, the film, Black Panther 2 will release on July 8, 2022. The movie will begin shooting in June 2021. Michael Jordan, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett will reprise their role in the second installment of the movie.
