Disney’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a sequel to the 2018 released Black Panther. On Wednesday night, the world premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took place in Hollywood. It is the 30th feature film entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
On November 8, the official review embargo for Wakanda Forever will be removed; however, the embargo for early reactions on social media was lifted just after the premiere.
Fans are anticipating a lot from the sequel to Black Panther because the first film was such a box office success around the world. Tickets for the first part brought in $1.35 billion, and the film was also nominated for the best picture Oscar.
Marvel Studios officially confirmed the sequel’s development in mid-2019, but due to some circumstances, the production of the film started in 2021.
Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death is one of the main causes of its sequel’s delay. Boseman passed away from colon cancer on August 28, 2020. He had been fighting the disease in private for more than four years prior to his death.
Both Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, and Ryan Coogler, the director of Black Panther, were uninformed of Chadwick Boseman’s sickness while they worked on the second installment of the film with the actor serving as their primary focus. He played the role of Black Panther in the MCU.
Other than that, the Covid-19 pandemic was also a reason for its postponement. Meanwhile, on June 29, 2021, production of the long-awaited Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film began at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, with the working title Summer Break. This was after the production team had overcome a number of challenges.
In the second season of Wakanda Forever, several cast members, including Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, Angela Bassett, and Martin Freeman, will reprise their roles from the first season. In addition, rookies Tenoch Huerta, who will play Namor, and Dominique Thorne, who will play Riri Williams/Ironheart, will make their screen debut in this picture.
Wakanda Forever, the sequel to Black Panther, is scheduled to be released in theatres on November 11. The new film will have a total running time of two hours and 41 minutes, making it the second-longest title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), after only Avengers: Endgame.
