A lot of Marvel Cinematic Universe installments hold dear places in the hearts of fans, and Black Panther is no exception. The 2018 film became a cultural phenomenon, and after the death of franchise star Chadwick Boseman last year, the continuation of the saga’s story has taken on a completely different meaning. The upcoming sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is currently filming, and a TV spinoff tentatively titled Black Panther: Kingdom of Wakanda is also in the works. Fans are curious to see what the future holds for some of the ensemble’s performers, even Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis). Despite being killed during the events of Black Panther, Serkis’ assumption of the character has lived on in the animated series What If …?, And in a recent interview with io9, the actor talked about where the franchise is headed.
“Wakanda as a world, as a place, as a philosophy is such an extraordinary thing,” Serkis explained. “So I’m really excited to see how it develops, how it unfolds. It’s clearly, very, very sad in the wake of [Chadwick Boseman’s] departure, but I’m sure the story will go in a way to commemorate such an extraordinary achievement and such an incredible actor and person in that film. “
In the wake of Boseman’s passing, it was confirmed that the role of T’Challa / Black Panther would not be remade or digitally recreated, instead chosen to explore other stories within the Wakandian myths.
“So much of the comics and the first movie is Wakanda’s world,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained earlier this year. “Wakanda is a place to explore further with characters and different subcultures. This was always and in the first place the primary focus of the next story.”
“We are not going to have a CG Chadwick and we are not reworking T’Challa,” Feige added. “Ryan Coogler is working very hard right now on the script with all the respect and love and genius he has, which gives us great comfort, so it was always about promoting the mythology and inspiration of Wakanda. There is also the task of honoring and also respecting the ongoing teaching and learning of Chad. “
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to see the return of Danai Gurira as Okoye, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Winston Duke as M’baku, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Angela Bassett as Ramonda and Martin Freeman as Everett Ross. Dominique Thorne will also debut as Riri Williams before appearing in her own Ironheart Disney + series, and Tenoch Huerta and Michaela Coel have been cast in currently unknown roles.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently being released on July 8, 2022.
