Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was a huge investment. After the tragic death Chadwick BosemanManager Ryan Cooler and the rest of Black Panther the team had some serious work coming their way. They had to struggle to rewrite a plot that was meant for Boseman and to come up with something that was both respectful of Boseman’s legacy and kept the action in Wakanda moving forward.
They did that by having Letitia Wright’s character, Shuri, takes up T’Challa’s mantle as the new Black Panther. In addition, M’Baku took the throne as the new king of Wakanda. The Wakandans came together with Shuri’s help to defeat Namor and Talokan’s armies, and peace returns to Wakanda. While the film wrapped up many of the loose ends it created, there are still a few lingering questions. Of course, fans are speculating about the next sequel.
Wright spoke along Variety on the red carpet before Golden Globeswhich was covered here Variety.
Although of course you shouldn’t expect one Black Panther 3 to hit theaters anytime in the next few years, it’s definitely in the pipeline. During his interview, Wright said the following:
I think it is already underway. You know, we’ve just had two great years of bringing it out and everyone coming together to support it. We need a little break, we need to regroup and [director] Ryan [Coogler] going back to the lab, so it’s going to take a while, but we’re really looking forward to seeing it.
