How to continue the adventures of Black panther, the black superhero who had put the global box office at his feet, while honoring the memory of his interpreter Chadwick Boseman, who died prematurely by cancer? After several months of mourning and grief, director Ryan Coogler and his actors are ready to open this new chapter, according to the specialist magazine The Hollywood Reporter .
Marvel would have planned the start of the filming of this second part in July 2021. Ryan Coogler who will have had to radically change his screenplay, would count on six months of shooting in the studios of Atlanta. Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, one of the revelations of the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico, is in talks to camp the villain of this component.
Pillars of the first film, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett are expected to reprise their roles. Marvel and Disney have not let anything filter out as to how they will deal with the absence of Chadwick Boseman who played King T’Challa. At most we know that they will not use special effects to show his character on the screen as Star wars had done during the death of Carrie Fisher to complete the scenes of Princess Leia. According to some sources, the character played by Letitia Wright, who lends her features to sister T’Challa Shuri, should play a more important role.
Focus on series for Disney +
After an unprecedented year without any film release due to coronavirus, Marvel will be working hard. Spider-Man 3 and the second part Doctor Strange continue to shoot. Taika Waititi should give the first crank to Thor: Love and Thunder in Australia in January. And the cast should see the return of many familiar superheroes alongside Chris Hemworth taking over the Divine Hammer. The Hollywood Reporter even speaks of a meeting of talents that would have nothing to envy the adventures of Avengers. Later in the year 2021 should also begin the filming of a new Guardians of The Galaxy and Ant-Man.
And if the coronavirus vaccines make it possible to curb the coronavirus pandemic, Marvel intends to release three films in 2021. Starting with Black widow, with Scarlett Johanson and Florence Pugh, which should have been released this spring, followed by, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals led by Angelina Jolie.
This busy schedule should not mask all the efforts that Marvel is making in its future series for Disney +, a source of profitability in a world where cinemas are struggling. These serials are even the current priority of the studio which will launch the highly anticipated WandaVision on January 15th. Marvel is tweaking too Loki and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, whose filming had started before the health crisis. Series Ms. Marvel, which features the young and still unknown Iman Vellani, has also moved into the Atlanta studios while waiting for She-Hulk, with Tatiana Maslany and Moon knight with Oscar Isaac do the same. After a year of scarcity, it’s a real wave that is preparing.
