Everything We Know About The Black Panther Sequel

Marvel is making good on its promise that Wakanda is forever. The studio is moving forward on Black Panther 2 following the movie’s massive 2018 box office haul and seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. The sequel’s future was in doubt after the sudden passing of star Chadwick Boseman in August at 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

On Thursday, the official Disney+ Twitter confirmed plans for the next installment, tweeting, “Black Panther 2, opening July 8, 2022, is being written & directed by Ryan Coogler. Honoring Chadwick Boseman’s legacy & portrayal of T’Challa, @MarvelStudios.”

Now that a release date has been announced, fans can look forward to a sequel that honors Boseman’s legendary contribution to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ahead, everything we know about Black Panther 2, including when the film will be released.

Black Panther 2 will begin filming in July 2021.

Ahead of the movie’s 2022 release date, multiple sources told The Hollywood Reporter that shooting on the sequel begins next July. According to the outlet, production was meant to begin in March 2021, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has similarly halted other Phase 4 Marvel releases, along with the sudden loss of Boseman. Now, filming will reportedly take place in Atlanta starting in July and resume for six months.

T’Challa will not be recast.

After Boseman’s death in August, the future of King T’Challa’s role in the franchise was in flux. Per THR, no one at Marvel was aware of the actor’s private cancer battle, which he kept to a tight-knit circle of people. A source close to Boseman told the outlet that up until his death, he believed he recover and shoot the sequel. Disney has now confirmed that T’Challa will not be recast and that instead the character will be honored in another way.

The original cast is welcoming at least one new member.

Many of the actors from 2018’s Black Panther will return for the sequel. These include Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Letita Wright as Shuri (in a more major role, per THR), Winston Duke as M’Baku, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, and Angela Bassett as Queen Mother Ramonda. Less likely to reprise his role is Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, as that character met his demise in the first film. However, characters have been known to get revived in the Marvel films.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter in November that at least one new cast member would be entering the sequel. Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico, Spectre) will reportedly play one of the film’s antagonists, although no additional character details have been revealed. Meanwhile, speculation about Rihanna joining Wakanda has not be substantiated.

Beyoncé could be involved with the film’s soundtrack.

In June, a report from The Sun claimed negotiations were underway between Beyoncé and Disney for a $100 million deal for her work on three projects. One of those was reportedly Black Panther 2, although neither party confirmed the Sun‘s report. Bey’s last work on a Disney soundtrack was for The Lion King: The Gift, along with her voice work as Nala in the movie.
