At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel unveiled the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, with fans praising the studio’s emotional tribute to Chadwick Boseman following his tragic death in August 2020. I was impressed. The future of the franchise as Boseman was a big part of the success of the first installment.
ET, the movie’s stars share how the franchise continues the legacy Boseman left behind. Lupita Nyong’o, who plays Nakia in the movie, praised Ryan Coogler, she said. “He sets a certain tone, a certain culture on set that all hands are on deck. It’s teamwork, family and intimacy. And you kind of walk on fire together, and Lord, there was fire. It’s “very, very moving” his work. See his competition put together.
He later added, “And see what that means for the audience.” Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, has some instincts in this particular story that bring tears to our eyes. Sharing his sentiments, he added, “It’s definitely a family.
It’s been a family since the beginning.” There are new members, but as Rupita says, it’s a great collaboration of really caring souls and people and people who really want to honor the legacy that Chadwick is trying to carry on.
Coogler took to the stage at the tournament to talk about Boseman’s loss. “It’s been five years since I’ve been here,” he continued. Now give him your hand. Chad is no longer with us, but the impact of his spirit, pride, culture and art is felt forever.
