The tragic death of Chadwick Boseman shook Hollywood and fans all around the world. The star of the colossal hit Black Panther, his loss has been felt to a massive degree.
There were initially plans to make Black Panther II, with Ryan Coogler returning to the director’s chair, but now that Boseman is no longer with us Letitia Wright, who starred in Black Panther as T’Challa’s sister Shuri, has told Net-a-Porter that she isn’t even thinking about a sequel:
“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about. The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it.”
Black Panther II was initially schedule for release in May 2022. Whether Marvel and Disney decide to go ahead with a second movie, perhaps with Shuri assuming the mantle of the Black Panther, remains to be seen.
