Marvel’s ‘Black Panther: Wakanda’ Forever is looking to be an emotional film for Marvel fans after Chadwick Boseman’s death from colon cancer in 2020. Letitia Wright says the film is an “incredible honour” for Boseman and that the actors and crew poured everything they had into the story.
Wright discussed how the film celebrates Boseman with Variety at the Kering Women in Motion event at the Cannes Film Festival, explaining that:
“It’s an incredible honor for Chadwick Boseman,” she said. “It’s jam packed with exciting stuff. November, it couldn’t come sooner so I’m excited for you guys to see it.”
Wright goes on, “We honored him by committing ourselves to the story that he started, the legacy he started with this franchise, and We committed every day to working hard, no matter what circumstances we faced. And we faced a lot of circumstances. A lot of difficult situations, but we came together as a team. We poured everything into this movie.”
Danai Gurira made similar remarks before, hinting to a “heart-wrenching narrative.”
“Listen, we poured everything we had into it,” Gurira said. “We hope you experience that, and it resonates the way it does for us. It tells a very heart-wrenching story and that is all I can say. I’m very grateful for the way our director/writer handled that.”
Production for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ began back in June 2021 and is scheduled to be released on November 11th this year.
