Black Panther Wakanda Forever Reportedly Going for Extensive Reshoots

Receiving its long-awaited sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is finally set to hit theatres this year. Set in the fictional kingdom of Wakanda, the first film in the series was hailed for its story and having the first Marvel film to be headlined by a black actor.

It originally starred Chadwick Boseman as King T’Challa/Black Panther and he was expected to return to the sequel, but all plans fell through after the actor’s tragic death. This raised the difficult question as to who would play the next Black Panther.

Sequel stuck in reshoots galore

Due to the pandemic and some on-set issues with a few cast members delaying production, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has gone through many reshoots. Originally starting production in 2021, the crew had to halt production in November due to Letitia Wright getting into an accident.

The comments of Letitia Wright on vaccines didn’t make things easier for the studio, as many fans asked for her to be fired. Furthermore, being a Marvel studios production, it naturally goes through regular reshoots, and so it did around the time San Diego Comic-Con was on.

More reshoots for Black Panther?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is reportedly going through more reshoots from September 7 through September 14 in Atlanta, Georgia. Considering the film is two months away from release, fans have become nervous about the end product.

Many fans believe the sequel is set out to fail, without the presence of Chadwick Boseman as King T’Challa.

Reshoots so late generally do not mean anything positive, as was the case in Justice League, where the late reshoots resulted in a clucky eyesore of a film. On the other hand, it could be to alter the post-credits scene, as is the case with Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.

Considering the entry of the Fantastic Four and Kang is confirmed, Doctor Doom should also be joining the MCU soon and these reshoots might be ensuring the very same. It would be amazing to see the king of another mysterious kingdom, Latveria revealed in Wakanda Forever’s post-credits.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is expected to release on November 11, 2022.
