Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe is constantly expanding, there are a few planned projects that are particularly exciting. The most recent of these is Ryan Coogler's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is now in production. And a producer recently discussed the "pressure" of paying tribute to Chadwick Boseman in the enigmatic sequel.
Chadwick Boseman's death stunned fans and colleagues alike, as the late actor had been battling colon cancer privately. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will continue the story of the imaginary country while also giving T'Challa and Chadwick Boseman their credit. Producer Nate Moore recently discussed how difficult it was to pay tribute to Ma Rainey's Black Bottom star, saying: “I think this movie has a different sort of pressure on it, obviously, with the loss of Chadwick, which was unexpected and unprecedented in a way narratively, to figure out how to deal with. So beyond, 'Hey, we want to make a big, fun time,' and people of the first movie, it's how do we sort of do right by his legacy and tell a story that isn't exploitative, which we would never, ever do, but builds on the things that he loved about the property and builds on the things that he brought to the property in a way that is enjoyable, feels real, feels earned, feels organic. Because I think we're going to see the movie in two lenses, pure entertainment, but also cathartic. And we have to be conscious of both of those lenses as we're making them.”
