Black Panther 2 set photo confirms another returning character

Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o has seemingly confirmed the return of a character in the much-anticipated Marvel sequel in a series of behind-the-scenes photos from the set.

During a break in filming for Black Panther 2Nyong’o shared several snaps of the film’s cast members, and eagle-eyed fans spotted the presence of Danny Sapani, whose character had not been confirmed to return by Marvel previously.

Nyong’o, who plays Nakia, posted the pictures to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Black Panther as we look ahead to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hitting theaters later this year.

“Greetings from Wakanda!” the actress posted. “Happy 4th anniversary to #BlackPanther.”

The photos featured Nyong’o posing alongside Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Winston Duke (M’Baku) and Sapani.

It appears to confirm a return for Sapani, who plays M’Kathu, the leader of Wakanda’s Border Tribe, where M’Baku (Winston Duke) also comes from. The news comes after it was previously teased that M’Baku would have more of a role to play in the film’s sequel.

Black Panther 2 filming has been hit by several delays in recent months due to the Covid-19 pandemic and an on-set injury obtained by star Letitia Wright prompting production to shut down. Fortunately, the film is set to finish filming in February ahead of its November 2022 release date.

The sequel is also set to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who played Wakanda’s King T’Challa in the MCU, after he sadly died in August 2020.

Bassett previously said: “Everyone felt, the first week of shooting, the presence of Chadwick and missing him on that throne.

“But we all came together and just paid homage to him before we began, which was wonderful … everyone just speaking beautiful words about him and expressing how much we care and how he informed and inspired us.”

There is not much detail about how Marvel will address T’Challa’s absence in the sequel but the studio’s executives have confirmed that they will not be digitally recreating the character – nor will they recast the role either.

“There’s only one Chadwick and he’s not with us,” said Marvel Studios’ Executive Vice President Victoria Alonso in November 2020.

“Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really. ”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a release date of November 11, 2022. The first movie is streaming now on Disney +.
