BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Set Video Reveals How Marvel Plans To Handle T'Challa's MCU Exit - SPOILERS
A newly surfaced video from the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sheds some light on how Marvel Studios will address the end of T'Challa's story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read on for details.
Work has begun on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and a leaked video from the set of the movie takes us back to Wakanda. As you can see, the throne room has been rebuilt, albeit with one significant, emotional change.
A monument of some sort is being constructed that confirms how T'Challa is being written out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following the tragic death of actor Chadwick Boseman after a lengthy battle with cancer, we expected his on-screen hero's life might also have come to an end, and that does, in fact, appear to be the case.
The Wakandan text on those pillars translates to "T'Challa, Our Hero, 'Twas An Honor, Wakanda Forever." Now, it's certainly possible that was built in the wake of Black Panther's apparent death in Avengers: Infinity War, but with no plans to recast the hero, we're expecting this to be how T'Challa's story concludes.
Whether his death will take place off-screen or factor into the story in a significant way remains to be seen, though we know the intention is to honour both Boseman and the character in a meaningful way.
Watching the Black Panther sequel promises to be an emotional experience, but we are excited to see where Ryan Coogler and the team take this franchise next, especially when it means so much to so many.
