Black Panther 2 will pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman

Black Panther 2 has been redesigned to pay homage to Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played T'Challa in the first chapter and who unfortunately will not be able to take on the role of the Black Panther again.

Died at just 43 years old for a colon cancer, Chadwick Boseman has also left a huge void within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Disney creatives have had to deal with this unexpected development.

How? We don't know the details yet, but actress Lupita Nyong'o hinted at the matter. "People ask me if I'm excited to be back on set, but that's certainly not the right word. More than anything else I feel thoughtful when it comes to Black Panther 2," she said.

" His idea, the way he rethought the second film, is truly respectful of the pain we all felt, from cast to audience. So grappling with the sequel now feels right on point. spiritually and emotionally. "

" So yes, I hope we can get together soon and honor what Chadwick started, keeping his light alive. Because if there is one thing certain it is that he left us so much , so much light that we can still immerse ourselves in. "

Lupita Nyong’o says Black Panther 2 will honour Chadwick Boseman after he died in August last year following a battle with cancer.

Chadwick has been handed a number of posthumous awards this year for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom after he suffered with colon cancer in private for four years.

And Lupita, 38, admits it will be a struggle to go to work on Black Panther 2 without Chadwick after he starred in the first film.

During an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment while promoting her YouTube original series Super Sema, she said: ‘People will ask me, “Are you excited to go back?” Excitement isn’t the word.

‘I feel like I’m in a very pensive and meditative state when it comes to Black Panther 2. [Chadwick’s] passing is still extremely raw for me. And I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like to step on set and not have him there.’



The new film will soon begin production in Atlanta, and Lupita says Chadwick’s absence will carefully be addressed.

She added that director Ryan Coogler has also been affected by the loss of Chadwick and that he has reworked the film to pay tribute.

Lupita said: ‘So 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.’

On suffering his own grief, Ryan said on the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast: ‘One thing that I’ve learned in my short or long time on this Earth is that it’s very difficult to have perspective on something while you’re going through it.’
