Lupita Nyong'o Talks About Filming 'Black Panther 2' Without Chadwick Boseman

Lupita Nyong’o is opening up about the future of Black Panther without the late Chadwick Boseman as part of the cast.

“It’s gonna be different, of course, without our king to go back into that world,” the 38-year-old actress shared in a virtual interview on Good Morning America this week.

However, she’s hopeful as director Ryan Coogler has some exciting things planned for the sequel.

“I know that all of us are dedicated to carrying on his legacy in this new Black Panther,” she added. “Ryan Coogler has some really, really exciting ideas that I look forward to bringing to life with the rest of the family.”

Earlier this year, Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed that Chadwick‘s role of T’Challa would not be recast and the film would actually focus on the world of Wakanda instead.

“So much of the comics and that first movie is the world of Wakanda. Wakanda is a place to further explore with characters and different subcultures. This was always and initially the primary focus of the next story,” he shared.
