The upcoming MCU sequel will see the rulers of Wakanda fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of the death of King T’Challa. Following Chadwick Boseman’s passing in 2020, Marvel Studios confirmed that T’Challa would not be recast and that the character’s absence would be addressed in wakanda forever. Wright, who shared several scenes with his on-screen brother in the first Black Panther, recently opened up about filming the sequel without Boseman. “It was hard for me to imagine being on set without my brother,” the actor said. “It was something I had struggled with for months. The confidence that [Ryan Coogler] felt he heard Chadwick just give him that gentle push forward, to keep going. And the way Ryan would express he was bigger than all of us, and Chad would have wanted us to go on. That really encouraged me.” While Marvel Studios has yet to confirm who will take on the role of Black Panther in the MCU, multiple reports have suggested that Wright’s Shuri will become the film’s next Black Panther.
