Black Panther 2 will start shooting next summer
We're starting to learn more about Black Panther 2, and it may be time to start getting excited.
Marvel Studio’s plans for the sequel to Black Panther are starting to come together, despite a number of setbacks occurring.
Initially there was the tragic death of the Black Panther himself in Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer at the age of 43.
And of course Covid-19 affected the film industry the way it did the rest of the world, resulting in 2020 being the first year without the release of an MCU movie since 2009.
But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is now readying Black Panther 2 for a shoot that will start in Atlanta in July of next year, and last for upwards of six months.
Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett are all expected to return for the new feature, with some saying Wright’s character Shuri may take on a more prominent role in the sequel.
And based on the reaction that Wright received from her performance in the first film, as well as Endgame and Infinity War, we would definitely take it.
There are also rumours that megastar Rihanna may be involved in the film in some capacity, though that is not even nearly confirmed at this point.
Last Sunday would have been Chadwick Boseman's 44th birthday, and Disney+ changed and redesigned the Marvel logo to reflect this in opening credit scenes.
