Last year, Black Panther celebrity Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away in 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer. Director Ryan Coogler recently discussed the emotional challenges of making the sequel with no Boseman. Coogler’s Black Panther has been considered among the best movies place from the MCU. Not only did the blockbuster gross over $1 billion globally, but also, it received seven Oscar nominations. It turned into the first MCU movie to win an Academy award and earn a Best Picture nomination. The film starred Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyongo as Nakia, and Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi.
During a recent appearance on the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast, Coogler revealed that he is still processing the reduction of his friend/co-worker. He stated that making Black Panther 2 is the hardest thing he’s ever done professionally. “One thing that I’ve heard in my short or very long time on the earth, however you want to check at itis it’s very hard to have a view on something as you’re going through it,” explained Coogler. “And this is among the more profound things I have ever gone through in my life. Needing to become a part of keeping this project going without this particular individual who had been like the glue that held it together.”
Later on in the podcast, the 34-year-old filmmaker asserted that Boseman was a special person who touched everyone around him. “I’m unbelievably sad to lose him but I am also incredibly encouraged that I got to spend some time with him.” He stressed that the forthcoming sequel will pay tribute to the late-great actor. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously mentioned that Black Banter two wouldn’t recast the use of T’Challa or create a digital version of Boseman. “Chadwick Boseman was an immensely talented performer and a motivational individual who affected all our lives,” said Feige. “His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends any iteration of the character in any other medium by Marvel’s past. It’s, therefore, we will not recast the character.”
Before this year, Coogler’s production company, Proximity Media signed a five-year overall executive television with Disney. The writer/director is slated to create and produce several series for your studio. The first will probably be a Wakanda play series to get Disney Plus. Details on the plot and cast of this show have yet to be announced. It was seen if the show will contain characters from the hit movie. The Wakanda series unites many MCU-related series in the works at Disney Plus. Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Armor Wars are all expected to be published on the streaming service.
Google has not stated how the movie will address Boseman’s passing. The Black Panther star has got wide critical acclaim because of his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Boseman is predicted to earn his first Oscar nomination for his closing on-screen performance. The actor has been awarded the Golden Globe for lead actor in a drama in February. His widow, Simone Ledward Boseman, gave an emotional speech at the ceremony. “He’d say something beautiful,” she said. “Something inspiring. Something which would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you you can. This informs you to keep going… and I do not have his words”
