As Marvel began to plan for the future of the Black Panther series after the late Chadwick Boseman, many people are wondering how it will develop. In a new interview with "Variety", Michael B. Jordan said that he has full confidence in the people behind the upcoming “Black Panther” sequel.
Jordan, who stars in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, was being interviewed by Variety when he was told about the title for the upcoming Black Panther sequel. The actor said he liked the Wakanda Forever subtitled and went on to say that he has full confidence in both director Ryan Coogler and Marvel.
“Nice. Awesome,” Jordan said. “I like that. … Marvel does great, amazing work, and the characters are awesome. We all took a hit with the loss of Chadwick, so for them trying to figure out how to move forward, I know it’s not an easy thing to do. So the fact that they settled on a title and figuring out this story, I think, is truly incredible. If anybody could figure it out, it’s Ryan Coogler and Kevin Feige.”
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is again directed and written by Ryan Coogler on the basis of Stan Lee's and Jack Kirby's Marvel Comics. Additional details on the Black Panther plot remain in the wraps, but Kevin Feige confirmed earlier that Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa was not to be refurbished. The new addition of Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico), who is reportedly antagonistic, is expected to return most of the first film's cast.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently set to arrive in theaters on July 8, 2022.
