Cast

Production

On March 9, 2018, Kevin Feige revealed that there are plans to make a sequel to Black Panther.[2]

On October 11, 2018, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Ryan Coogler has signed on to return to write and direct the film.[15]

On August 20, 2019, Martin Freeman revealed that filming was expected to begin in 2021.[16]

On August 28, 2020, Chadwick Boseman, who had been set to reprise his starring role as the titular character, died of colon cancer before production even began.[17]

On November 15, 2020, executive producer Victoria Alonso denied rumors that a digital body double of Boseman would be used for the film, saying "our king has died in real life, not only in fiction, and we're taking a little time to see how we continue the story..."[18]

Five days later, The Hollywood Reporter announced that filming on the sequel would begin in July 2021, and that Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta was in talks to portray the antagonist. It was also confirmed that Wright, Nyong'o, Duke, and Bassett would return. The article also stated there were rumors that "Wright's character Shuri may take on a more prominent role", leading to speculation that Shuri would take on the mantle of the Black Panther.[3]

On December 11, 2020, it was announced that the role of T'Challa would not be recast, and the film will now come out on July 8, 2022.[19] Eight days later, it was reported that the film would honour Chadwick Boseman and his portrayal as king T'Challa as well as explore the world of Wakanda.[20] The title was officially announced in May 2021.

On April 14, 2021, it was reported that the working title of the film would be "Summer Break".

On May 3, 2021, it was revealed that the film's title is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Principal photography began on June 29, 2021 in Atlanta.[21]

On August 19, 2021, Kevin Feige confirmed that Riri Williams / Ironheart will make her MCU debut in the film.[6]

On October 18, 2021, Deadline revealed that the release date for the film had been pushed back to November 11, 2022.[1]

It was reported on November 5, 2021 that production was shut down until early 2022 as Letitia Wright was still recovering from an injury from August.[22]

On January 14, 2022, BBC News reported that Letitia Wright had recovered from her injuries and that the film had resumed production.[23]

On March 24, 2022, it was reported that the film had wrapped production.[24]

Trivia

  • The title is a nod to the saying "Wakanda Forever", a battle cry by T'Challa.
  • A new Wakandan location will be featured.[25]
