Ryan Coogler Discusses How Chadwick Boseman's Life Would Have Changed Black Panther 2

The highly anticipated release of Black Panther 2 is less than two weeks away, and fans are buzzing with excitement for the film. This installment not only marks the culmination of Marvel’s phase 4 but also serves as a heartfelt tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

In the original Black Panther film, Chadwick Boseman portrayed the beloved protagonist, T’Challa. Plans for a sequel were set in motion soon after the first film’s success. However, after Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away in 2020 due to Colon Cancer, Marvel had to reset its plans, as recasting the role of T’Challa was deemed disrespectful to Boseman’s legacy.

The upcoming film is complete and ready for release, but it is a markedly different project from what would have been created had Chadwick still been with us. The initial concept for Black Panther 2 was already in place after the success of the first film.

Director Ryan Coogler recently discussed the original concept for Black Panther 2 in an interview with Inverse. He explained that the film would have shared a similar tone, but the storyline would have focused on T’Challa’s return after a five-year absence caused by the events of Avengers: Endgame. In this narrative, T’Challa would have grappled with the grief of losing precious time, which was a central theme. Namor was always intended to be the antagonist, with other characters considered for inclusion.

Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever will portray T’Challa’s passing, mirroring Chadwick’s real-life departure. The film will delve into how T’Challa’s loved ones confront emerging threats and strive to uphold the legacy he left behind, just as the cast and crew are committed to preserving Chadwick Boseman’s memory in real life.

Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever is set to hit theaters worldwide on November 11.
