Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Black Panther 2) director Ryan Coogler answered the film’s main question.
With the death of star Chadwick Boseman in 2020, many fans questioned what the Marvel sequel would be like without the protagonist.
In a recent interview for empire, Coogler said the question of continuing in production always circulated to him. He responds that this question has become very relevant over time.
“How do you continue in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds?” recalled the director.
“Unfortunately, this question has become increasingly relevant. So much for humanity as a whole, but also for the people in our production who were coming back for this one. It became super-relevant when we lost our brother,” he commented.

“As Wakandans struggle to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) to forge a new path for the Kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a secret undersea nation,” continues the synopsis.
