The interpreter of Okoye reveals that Wakanda Forever will be dedicated to paying tribute to Chadwick Boseman.
In 2019, during CinemaCon in San Diego, Black Panther 2 had officially been announced. Its exit was then questioned, during the untimely death of actor Chadwick Boseman, in 2020.
Despite some difficulties, the director of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ryan Coogler and his team managed to rework the film to honor King T’Challa as it should. As indicated Screen Rantfirst footage was shown during CinemaCon in Las Vegas last week.
The footage in question showed Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) in the front line, preparing for battle. Nothing more was indicated. But at the Met Gala on Monday night, the actress Dania Gurira gave a very short update for the fans: “ [Le film] tells a very heartbreaking story. And that’s all I can say! We hope…it resonates for everyone as it does for us. It’s a film honoring Chadwick. It’s an outpouring of love in his honor. »
The film is in the hands of the same director as the first and, according to Gurira, it promises to be a fine homage.
