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..."
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.
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. 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. The title was officially announced in May 2021.
- Production began in early 2021, a few months later than planned as the cast and crew were still grieving over the death of Chadwick and weren't in the frame of mind to film during this period.
- The title is a nod to the saying "Wakanda Forever", a battle cry by T'Challa.
