Marvel Studios has unveiled the official title for Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther sequel.
Diseny and Marvel Studios have yet to address how they’re going to move forward with the Black Panther franchise after the devastating loss of Chadwick Boseman. Marvel’s Kevin Feige has mentioned that they do not plan to recast the role, but other than that nothing was known about the sequel that is until now. In a new video, Marvel Studios celebrated a return to theaters and revealed the titles and release dates for a few of their upcoming movies, including Black Panther 2.
The sequel will officially be titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The new title is fitting and means a lot more after the death of Chadwick Boseman. You can check out the video below.
