Black Panther 2 is set to begin filming in Atlanta next July, following the tr-agic loss of star Chadwick Boseman.According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel was originally intended to begin production in March of next year. But Boseman’s untimely passing at age 43 left Marvel and writer/director Ryan Coogler navigating grief and how to move forward.
The sho-ot is set to last upward of six months, with Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett returning. Wright’s character Shuri is rumored to be taking on a larger role after fans urged the studio to have her don the Black Panther costume as the superhero’s successor.
Although Marvel has not revealed how they plan to move forward with the story, they have indicated that they don’t intend to include the late Boseman via CGI.
