The ‘Black Panther’ sequel officially has a title.

Full story below…

Today Marvel, by way of a slick reveal video, trumpeted the news that the next installment of the franchise will go by ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’

It’ll be released on July 8 2022.

Few films can rival the anticipation that surrounds the follow-up to the 2018 blockbuster.

The Ryan Coogler production drummed up over $1 Billion at the global box office. Yet, perhaps most notable was how the movie – with its all-Black cast and regal presentation – inspired and empowered millions the world over.

Another unavoidable facet of the intrigue surrounding the film is the tragic passing of lead Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020 after a hard-fought battle against colon cancer.

In the months since it’s been confirmed by those close to the production that Boseman will not be re-cast.

Also, this week, Lupita Nyong’o – who starred as his love interest – shared that ‘Wakanda Forever’ has been “reshaped” in the star’s honor.

Speaking to Yahoo, the Oscar winner said:

“People will ask me, ‘Are you excited to go back?’ Excitement isn’t the word. I feel like I’m in a very pensive and meditative state when it comes to Black Panther 2. [Chadwick’s] passing is still extremely raw for me. And I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like to step on set and not have him there.

At the same time we have a leader in Ryan, who feels very much like we do, who feels the loss in a very, very real way as well. And his idea, the way which he has reshaped the second movie is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world.”

We remain super excited for the film and trust that it’ll salute Chadwick fittingly.

    I wish I could say this is my favorite Chadwick film like other people, but I don’t think his part was written as well as it could’ve been in the original. I felt like he was overshadowed by Michael. I hope they can still put together a decent sequel.
