The cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever confronted an emotional Everest while filming the movie.

The cast had to deal with Boseman’s enormous off-screen legacy in addition to mourning the passing of the actor who played the titular hero, Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in 2020 after a struggle with colon cancer.

Although the actors have listed a variety of scenes as emotional obstacles for the movie, Lupita Nyong’o, who portrayed Boseman’s love interest in the first movie, Nakia, had one scene in particular that resonated with her.

She described how watching the concept for the sequel picture, which was introduced by director and screenwriter Ryan Coogler, drove her to tears.

Nyong’o admitted to crying as he guided her through it, as reported by source. “So he walked me through it and I remember I wept,” “I wept uncontrollably actually, ’cause I was relieved. I was relieved to know that we would be honoring Chadwick, honoring T’Challa and that Nakia got this continued story that allowed her to grow.”

Nyong’o read a version of the movie’s script that wasn’t its original. Boseman was alive when the first version, which highlighted T’Challa’s tale, was released.

Before handing it over to the studio, Coogler had sent it to the late Hollywood legend for review. Unfortunately, Boseman was too worn out to focus on it at that point because his health had gotten worse.

Then, according to Coogler on The Official Black Panther Podcast, “…Then he said he didn’t want to read it because he didn’t want to get in the way of whatever notes the studio might have, so he was like ‘It’s better if I read it later,’” “But I found out later that he was too tired to read anything.”

Unsurprisingly, Coogler’s shoulders were greatly burdened by the reality of losing his companion.

He was so shattered, in fact, that he contemplated giving up on creating movies completely. Coogler told Entertainment Weekly, “I didn’t know if I could make another movie period, [let alone] another Black Panther movie, because it hurt a lot.”

“I was like, ‘Man, how could I open myself up to feeling like this again?'” Thankfully, Coogler was able to convince Boseman to support a new sequel when he reminded him of how much value he placed on T’Challa’s legacy.

Boseman’s selfless devotion to Black Panther was amply displayed on screen, as the first movie earned an estimated $1.3 billion in worldwide box office revenue.

But the Marvel Cinematic blockbuster’s influence went far beyond the numbers; being the first widely distributed superhero movie with a Black lead, it struck a chord with viewers all around the world.

It featured numerous strong Black female stars in addition to a Black hero, something the comic book industry has yet to see enough of. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has already put itself in a position to live up to its predecessor with an anticipated $365 million debut on opening weekend.

With a remarkable 85% on the Tomatometer and 152 reviews, it has also received the Rotten Tomatoes seal of approval.

On November 11, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is released in theaters. Here is a link to the movie’s trailer.
