Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Casts Rocking at European premiere
The European premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took place in London, and the cast was there.
Michaela Coel, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong’o were among the celebrities that walked the red carpet for the highly anticipated superhero movie sequel.
Coel said: “As a woman of color, the emotion of having my experience reflected back still makes me feel ecstatic to be alive.”
I feel really confident because of this cast, and I’m honored to be one of them.
Black Panther, which debuted in 2018, is one of the most financially successful movies ever. At the box office, the Marvel Studios film brought in more than £1 billion.
It was the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture at the Oscars. It was nominated for seven awards and won three, for production design, costume design, and original score.
The series has received accolades for its powerful representation of black characters.
Danai Gurira played Okoye again in Black Panther. She said she hoped the movie would “open the door” for other franchises to have strong black female characters.
Following the loss of actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in 2020 from colon cancer, she described filming as an “intensive process.”
The 43-year-old’s age may be reflected in the film’s premise, which Lupita Nyong’o claims would “truly resonate with people.”
Nyong’o told BBC News, “Respecting Chadwick and what he began us off with is the way forward.” We all face loss at some point, therefore, Ryan was very wise to accept it and focus his film on how we cope with it. “People will be surprised by the honesty of it, and I’m incredibly proud of you for managing to do that without sacrificing enjoyment or spectacle.”
In the first movie, Boseman played the law-enforcing king of the mythical African country of Wakanda, which had the most advanced technology on the planet.
In the first 24 hours after its debut, the trailer for its sequel, Wakanda Forever, had more than 170 million views.
A song from the upcoming movie’s soundtrack, Rihanna’s first in six years, was released last week.
According to Coogler, Rihanna’s presence in the film was a tribute to Boseman.
He admitted, “Honestly, I believe it was Chad.” “Many unlikely things had to happen for it to go through, and Rihanna was quite clear that she did that for him,” says the author.
Stormzy, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Maya Jama were among the other famous people present at the premiere.
