Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Letitia Wright Gets Honest About Honoring Chadwick Boseman In The Marvel Sequel

Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a doozy so far, with mind-blowing new releases hitting both theaters and Disney +. One of the most highly anticipated upcoming Marvel movies is Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, especially following the first movie’s wild success. And Shuri actress Leitita Wright recently got honest about honoring the late Chadwick Boseman in the upcoming Marvel sequel.

Actor Chadwick Boseman became a real-life hero to many after debuting as T’Challa / Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The public and his colleagues alike were shocked when he passed away in the summer of 2020, following a private battle with colon cancer. The cast and crew are seemingly dedicating the project to the late actor’s memory, with Letitia Wright recently speaking with Variety about this process. As she put it,

It’s an incredible honor for Chadwick Boseman. It’s jam packed with exciting stuff. November, it could not come sooner so I’m excited for you guys to see it. We honored him by committing ourselves to the story that he started, the legacy he started with this franchise, and we committed every day to working hard, no matter what circumstances we faced. And we faced a lot of circumstances. A lot of difficult situations, but we came together as a team. We poured everything into this movie.
