Black Panther 2: cast, release date changes and all you need to know about Wakanda Forever

The Black Panther 2 we see in theaters will not be the sequel anybody would have  wanted to see when the movie was first announced. The tragic death of star Chadwick Boseman (King T’Challa/Black Panther) in August 2020 means this eagerly anticipated follow-up will arrive tinged with sadness – and that returning director Ryan Coogler has had to completely rethink his film to accommodate the absence of its popular leading man.

Even without Boseman, the sequel – now titled Wakanda Forever – is almost certain to be a hit. Of the 26 MCU movie releases to date, only the four Avengers outings have performed better at the worldwide box office than the first Black Panther. It was also the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.
