In the Wake of Chadwick Boseman’s Death, “Black Panther 2” to Start Filming Soon — Here’s What We Know

No one thought this day would come, but it had to eventually; the sequel to the Marvel movie “Black Panther” already has a filming schedule set in stone without its beloved star Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman, who played King T’Challa of fictional nation Wakanda, had passed away at the age of 43 on August 28, 2020, after a long battle with colon cancer. Marvel fans all over the world mourned his death and wondered how the next films would address his absence.

While there is no certainty how Marvel will explain the death of T’Challa and to whom the title of Black Panther will be passed on, The Hollywood Reporter claims that filming for the second film is already tentatively scheduled to begin in July 2021 to make it in time for a 2022 premiere.

Their sources also say that filming will be in Atlanta and will take approximately six months. Not only that, but “Narcos: Mexico” star Tenoch Huerta may be joining the cast as one of the film’s main antagonists! No confirmation who it will be, but  We Got This Covered suggests that it could be Namor the Sub-Mariner who will come to attempt to take over Wakanda.

In whatever way they will be saying their farewell to King T’Challa in the film, we only hope that he will be honored with care and respect, the way they did with General Leia in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker after her passing.
