Later this year, Black Panther 2 will come out in theaters (finally).
The much-anticipated MCU sequel started filming again in January 2022. Covid caused another one-week delay, but the movie should be done in February. Between November 2021 and January 2022, there was a break so that Letitia Wright could get better after getting hurt on set.
In May 2021, it was confirmed that the name of the next movie would be Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Even though it was supposed to come out in May 2022, the sequel is now set to come out in November 2022, and everything seems to be on track for that.
The sequel will be the first time we’ve been back to Wakanda since Chadwick Boseman’s death in August 2020. Everyone involved in making the movie wants to make sure it honors the late actor.
“Everyone felt, the first week of shooting, the presence of Chadwick and missing him on that throne,” Ramonda, the mother of T’Challa, will be back as Angela Bassett.
“But before we started, we all got together to honor him, which was great. Everyone just said nice things about him and talked about how much we care about him and how he taught us and inspired us.”
We don’t yet know how the sequel will deal with Boseman’s untimely death (though he won’t be digitally remade), but there’s still a lot to enjoy while we wait for the movie to come out next year.
So, without further ado, here is everything you need to know about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Black Panther 2 Release Date
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now come out in theaters on November 11, 2022, instead of October 20, 2021.
That’s a change of four months from July 2022, and the sequel will replace The Marvels, which will now come out on February 17, 2023. Even though nothing is set in stone, we hope this is the last time the movie will change.
Filming began in June 2021, but there was a break from November 2021 to January 2022, as was already said. In January 2022, production started up again, but there was another week-long delay soon after.
Now, though, filming is done, which means that the movie could come out on November 11.
Black Panther 2: Which Stars Will Return for Black Panther “Wakanda Forever”?
Keeping Boseman in the character of T’Challa for the sequel has been confirmed. Thankfully, there are currently no plans to deploy a “digital double” in the sequel.
Victoria Alonso, executive vice president of Marvel Studios, remarked, “There’s only one Chadwick and he’s not with us.” Unfortunately, our monarch died in real life and not only in fiction, so we are pausing for a moment to reflect on how we might best commemorate this unexpected, tragic, and awful chapter in our history.
According to Kevin Feige: “The world of Wakanda is heavily featured in both the comics and the first film. Further character development and examination of Wakanda’s many civilizations are possible. Always and at first, this was going to be the story’s main focus, thus it makes sense. There will be no CGI Chadwick, and T’Challa will not be remade.”
Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Ramonda (Angela Bassett), and M’Kathu (Danny Sapani) are all back for the sequel.
Wright reflected on how they “committed ourselves to the tale that he created, the legacy that he built with this brand” in May 2022.
To which Gurira added: “To put it bluntly, he is the center of attention. To love and honor him is an act that we all share in common.”
Tenoch Huerta, star of the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico, is in discussions to portray one of the antagonists in the next film, and there have been rumors that Duke would have an “increased role” in the film.
There has been no confirmation either way on the reappearance of Martin Freeman as CIA agent Everett Ross or of Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi. Sapani recently hinted at a “simply wonderful” filming experience, raising expectations for the eventual result.
Will we see Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger again? Killmonger was killed off in the first film, so it’s hardly plausible, but stranger things have occurred.
In What If…?, Jordan played Killmonger in a parallel reality. As of January 2022, he was still cagey when asked about the possibility of returning to the MCU.
The persona is part of a setting he adores, he explained. “I don’t know Everyone is aware that Marvel has its own agenda and ideas on how things should play out.”

Michaela Coel, who had a character in I May Destroy You that has not yet been revealed, and Dominique Thorne, who played Riri Williams/Ironheart in If Beale Street Could Talk, are both new to the cast.
As No Way Home concludes with Zendaya’s MJ and Jacob Batalon’s Ned leaving for MIT, the question arises as to whether or not Riri’s appearance will result in a Spider-Man crossover. Riri went to college there in the comics, and rumors have it that MIT served as a filming location for the sequel.
Anthony Mackie, who played Falcon and the Winter Soldier, was also sighted on set, however, he is not in the film and is only visiting the location. It’s possible that this is all an elaborate hoax, similar to when the Spider-Men got back together. In other words, we don’t know what the future holds.
Ryan Coogler is coming back to write and film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and he’s taking the original creative cast with him.

Black Panther 2 Plot
Since T’Challa won’t be recast, the sequel will focus on Wakanda and beyond.
The first set shot reveals little, but we’re eager.
Although the sequel’s narrative hasn’t been confirmed, it seems we’ll spend time with a variety of individuals while studying Wakanda’s “mythology.”
Wakanda Forever will include Namor, according to Production Weekly.
Wakanda and Atlantis are secret civilizations with sophisticated technology and militaristic powers that separated themselves for safety and fear.
Kevin Feige said he intended to explore more Wakandan history in the sequel, so we may have historical flashbacks to discover how Wakanda became what we saw in the first movie.
“At the end of the movie, T’Challa takes the herb again and meets his father. We messed up, and I want to fix it,’ he told Entertainment Weekly in March 2019.
“Ancestors surround T’Chaka. “I want to see… what’s their story?” we’d joke. The what? Bashing was Wakanda’s first monarch. Who’s behind T’Chaka, third from left? 1938 Wakanda: what happened? That’s cool.
How about Angela Bassett?
The actor told Cinema Blend, “Nothing.” November will bring Black Panther 2. It’ll be incredible. Our writer-director-leader Ryan Coogler. It’ll be incredible. It’s #1.”
Martin Freeman can’t reveal specifics but has a fascinating viewpoint on the script’s (tragic) evolution. “The script went in just before Chadwick died,” he told Collider.
“They had the script and were working on it when Chadwick died, and [I] thought, ‘Okay, I could picture a world without Black Panther, because how can you have a Black Panther without Black Panther?’
“I don’t know how that will appear. No, without Chad it would have been foolish. It was insane. His absence was surprising and still weird.
Black Panther 2 Trailer:
Even if filming has wrapped, we won’t see anything until at least the summer, and probably not until Comic-Con. On the other hand, a pleasant surprise would be great!
If you need a dose of Wakanda, you can watch the original Black Panther on Disney+, or any of the other Marvel Cinematic Universe flicks.
The release date for the Black Panther sequel Wakanda Forever is slated for November 11th, 2022. The Black Panther film has been added to Disney+.
