21 November 2020

The sequel to Black Panther is set to start filming next summer, three years on from the first movie’s release.

A news report revealed that the highly-anticipated movie is expected to begin production at some point in July 2021.

Filming was initially set to begin in March 2021, however, it was put on hold due to the tragic passing of Marvel star Chadwick Boseman, back in August.

The Black Panther actor died following a secret four-year battle with cancer, and since his passing there have been a number of questions on how the Marvel story would move forward without him.

The Hollywood Reporter indicated that they won’t be using a digital double for his character, saying, “Marvel is now readying Black Panther 2 for a shoot that will start in Atlanta in July and last for upwards of six months. Marvel, which had no comment on this story, has not revealed its plans on how it plans to proceed without Boseman, although it has indicated that it will not use CGI to include the late star in the film.”

However, they went on to state that Letitia Wright’s character “may take on a more prominent role”.

Letitia is amongst a number of actors from the popular movie who are set to reprise their roles for the sequel, including Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett.
