The upcoming superhero movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is based on the Marvel Comics character Black Panther. It is meant to be the follow-up to Black Panther (2018) and the 30th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is made by Marvel Studios and released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (MCU). Starring Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman, and Angela Bassett, the movie is directed by Ryan Coogler, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole. Following the passing of King T’Challa, the Wakandan authorities strive to preserve their country in the movie.
After the February 2018 release of Black Panther, plans for a sequel started to take shape. In the ensuing months, Coogler bargained to take over as director once more, and Marvel Studios formally announced the sequel’s production in the middle of 2019. After Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman passed away from colon cancer in August 2020, Marvel decided not to recast T’Challa’s role. By November of that year, further members of the first movie’s core cast had been confirmed, and the title had been revealed by May of 2021.
Prior to a break to allow Wright to recover from an injury experienced while filming, production initially took place in Atlanta and Brunswick, Georgia, as well as nearby Massachusetts, from late June to early November 2021. By mid-January 2022, production had resumed, and it was finished in Puerto Rico by late March.
After King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) passes away, his mother Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), his younger sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), Jabari Tribe leader M’Baku (Winston Duke), his bodyguard and chief of special forces Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje struggle to defend their country from interfering foreign powers.
The heroes must work together with the aid of T’Challa’s ex-girlfriend and spy War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and CIA agent Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) to establish a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda as the Wakandans attempt to embrace their next chapter.
