Death, as we all know, is a part of life. Some of us are fortunate to die in our sunset years, others leave this world far too soon.
When Chadwick Boseman passed away from cancer in 2020, it was a loss that was palpable. He was a well-liked and respected actor with a bright future. After the dust settled, there were obvious questions about how the creative team behind the Black Panther film series would go on without its lead actor.
Earlier this week, we sort of got the answer. The trailer for the sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released. As is normal for this stage of the game, the details are kept close to the vest. The only things we know so far is the future of Wakanda is in question and the loss of Boseman and his character, T’Challa is keenly felt.
I have a feeling that this film is going to pack an emotional punch and perhaps force fans to shed a few tears.
Am I looking forward to it? Without a doubt.
P.S. If I were a betting woman, I would put my money on Shuri (Letitia Wright) as the new Black Panther.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be in theaters in November.
