Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Finally Wraps Up On Filming


According to multiple people who worked on set such as Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter and Hairstylist Nikki Wright filming on the long awaited sequel has finally wrapped up on filming.

They both posted via their social media with Carter stating: “We are done! #finishline #andthatsthetruthruth #blackpantherwakandaforever“. And, Wright saying: “Day 117 of 88 was so many things! That’s a wrap.“.

Filming for the film took longer than expected due to not only the COVID-19 Pandemic but also due to actress Letitia Wright having an on-set injury resulting in hospitalization and production being shut down for several months. But now we can breath a sigh of relief that not only is she safe but also that filming has finally ended.

Not much is currently known about the plot of the film as Marvel seemingly wants to keep it under lock and key until we get closer to release. Though it has been heavily hinted that the story will revolve around a conflict between Wakanda and Atlantis with actor Tenoch Huerta said to be playing Namor the Sub-Mariner as the film’s antagonist. Actress Dominique Thorne is also set to debut as Riri Williams aka Ironheart before her own spinoff series on Disney Plus.

With the unexpected death of actor Chadwick Boseman in August of 2020 due to colon cancer it isn’t currently known how the titular hero will participate. Marvel has stated that they don’t plan to recast the role and don’t plan on using a CGI body double. Though it is only a rumor it has been suggested that his sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, will be taking up the mantel at some point.

Beyond the sequel Marvel is also expanding the world of Black Panther with a Wakanda series for Disney Plus. Like the sequel not much is known about the show. We will most likely have to wait until Wakanda Forever releases to get an idea on where the series will go.

Are you looking forward to the upcoming Black Panther Sequel? How do you think they will have Black Panther in the film without Chadwick Boseman playing him?
