How does Black Panther 2 work without it's lead character?

By Lukros76 | Random Stuffness | 8 May 2021

With the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman the MCU had to find a way to still seomhow keep the story of the Black Panther moving, even if in real life the actor died the character is still very much alive... so how did they handle this? With the movie yet to release everyone is wondering this but we've had quite a few things shared by the cast on how "Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever" will pay homage to the late actor.

Many of the lead actors, especially Lupita Nyong'o, have expressed that the "excitement" they should all be feeling to film the newest movie isn't really there mostly cause of the lingering feelings of sadness and regret. They can't, with a positive attitude, imagine a set where Chadwick is no longer there... However, most of them have expressed their trust in director Ryan Coogler, that he would properly honor and respect both the character and the deceased actor.

Lupita said

"It feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us, and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure.”

With how much it's been talked about, one thing we can be sure, besides the fact that there will be no recasting of T'Chall, is that the cast as well as the crew will respect what they have already built and keep the movie both entertaining and worthy of the light that Boseman left with him.

Thanks for reading and let's all enjoy Wakanda Forever once it comes out.
