It’s been a difficult journey for the cast and crew in filming this sequel. First, the heartbreaking death of Chadwick Boseman. Then production delays due to the global pandemic, plus actress Letita Wright needed time to recover from an on-set injury.

Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett all reprise their parts from the first movie. The movie will also introduce actress Dominique Thorne taking on the role of Marvel Comics hero Riri Williams aka Ironheart.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will debut in movie theaters on November 11, 2022.
