Last year, the studio’s VP of development Nate Moore told The Ringer-Verse podcast that T’Challa would not be seen in the MCU because Black Panther would never be remade after the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman. “We have to figure out how to move this franchise forward without that character. Because I think we all feel a lot of T’Challa in the MCU on screen … tied to Chadwick’s performance. ‘Black Challenge for ‘Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is telling a story without T’Challa,” he had said.

Chadwick passed away in August 2020 at the age of 43 after a battle with cancer. “When you lose loved ones you have to keep going. I know Chad didn’t want us to stop. He was someone who was all about collectivism. ‘Black Panther’, that was his movie. Him was hired before hiring any actress, before hiring any actress, before anyone else was even thought of to play that role,” filmmaker Ryan Coogler was quoted as saying.

Not much is known about the plot of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but Shuri is expected to play a bigger role after Boseman’s death. Other Black Panther artists include Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett.
