Ryan Culger advances with Black Panther 2. Apparently he restructured the script because the lead actor Chadwick Boseman died last year of colon cancer at the age of 43.
After his death, fans speculated how the franchise would continue without him. Some said the sequel should go full speed ahead, while others said it should, as Boseman is the only one who can do justice to the superhero. When actress Lupita Nyong’o (who plays Nikia in black Panther) talk to Yahoo, she shed some light on how the actors and the team will move forward – which is easier said than done.
“I can’t even imagine what it would be like to step on the set and not have him there.” Nyong’o and Boseman were good friends and his loss caused him personal sacrifice, “His death is still extremely harsh for me. ”
The press asked the actress if she was excited about the photos, but with a heavy sense of loss, how can anyone be excited? “People will ask me, ‘Are you excited to come back?’ “Excitement is not the word. I feel like I’m in a very thoughtful and meditative state when it comes to Black Panther 2. ”
The good thing is that Kugler wrote a screenplay that honors in every way the legacy of the late actor. “We have a leader in Ryan who feels very much like us, who also feels the loss in a very, very real way. And his idea, the way he reshaped the second film, is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world. “
The fact that Chadwick Bozeman is not there does not mean that he is not here in spirit. He left an impact on everyone who knew him, both the cast and the cast Black Panther 2 he will never forget what he left behind. “I look forward to it, we get back together and honor what he started with us, and we keep our light through him. Because he left us a lot of light in which we will still bathe. I know this for sure. “
The film goes into production later this year and will be shot in Georgia. The release date of the Black Panther sequel is listed as JJuly 22, 2022
