The Marvel Comics character Black Panther will serve as the inspiration for an American superhero movie titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will be released in 2022. It is the sequel to Black Panther (2018) and the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (MCU). Ryan Coogler is the director of the movie, and he and Joe Robert Cole developed the screenplay together. The film also stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Dominique Thorne, Florence Kasumba, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Angela Bassett, and Martin Freeman. After King T’Challa is killed at the beginning of the movie, the other leaders of Wakanda do their best to keep their country safe.

 

After the first release of Black Panther in February 2018, ideas for a potential sequel began to emerge. Coogler negotiated to return as director throughout the course of the subsequent months, and Marvel Studios formally confirmed the production of the sequel somewhere in the middle of 2019. After the death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman in August 2020 from colon cancer, the plans for the film were altered, and Marvel decided not to recast his part of T’Challa in the movie. By November of that year, it was reported that other important cast members from the previous film would be returning, and the title of the film was unveiled in May of 2021. After beginning in late June and continuing into early November 2021 in Atlanta and Brunswick, Georgia, as well as several locations throughout Massachusetts, production eventually came to a halt in order to give Wright time to recover from an injury he sustained while filming. Production picked back up around the middle of January 2022 and continued until the end of March in Puerto Rico.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had its world premiere on October 26, 2022, in Hollywood at both the El Capitan Theatre and the Dolby Theatre. It is the final film that will be released in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it will be released in the United States on November 11, 2022.
