“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will not have Daniel Kaluuya in it.
As Rotten Tomatoes Awards Editor Jacqueline Coley first reported, the Oscar winner for “Judas and the Black Messiah” confirmed that he will not be playing W’Kabi again in Marvel’s “Black Panther” sequel. This will be the first time that the title superhero will appear in a Marvel movie without Chadwick Boseman.
Kaluuya said he couldn’t make it because he had to work on Jordan Peele’s “Nope,” which comes out July 22. Walt Disney Pictures has set November 11 as the date for the release of “Wakanda Forever.” The movie was done being shot in March.
A Disney reppresentative told that Kaluuya doesn’t show up in “Wakanda Forever.”
Kaluuya had said before that he felt “privileged” to be in “Black Panther.” In 2021, he told Variety that the movie changed the MCU for good.
Kaluuya said, “We can show this world the way we see it, and it’s still a Marvel movie.” “You’re bringing something into the world that doesn’t exist, and that’s really hard because there’s no plan, no template.
And it hurts a bit to do that. But when people get it and make it their own, and kids and families dress up to go to the movies, it all makes sense.said, “We can show this world the way we see it, and it’s still a Marvel movie.” “You’re bringing something into the world that doesn’t exist, and that’s really hard because there’s no plan, no template.

The production of “Black Panther 2” was held up by the COVID–19 pandemic and an injury to star Letitia Wright on set. From November to mid–January 2022, production was put on hold while Wright healed from an injury he got in August while using a stunt rig. Wright plays Shuri, who is the sister of T’Challa, the Black Panther, who is played by Boseman. It was thought that Wright would play the main role in “Wakanda Forever” after Boseman dies in 2020.
Ryan Coogler, who wrote and directed the first film and won three Oscars for it and made $1.3 billion worldwide, came back to direct the second one. Even though the plot is still being discussed and guessed about, it has been confirmed that Boseman will not be replaced as T’Challa. This means that Coogler will have to change the original script for the sequel.
Along with Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Winston Duke, Danny Spani, and Angela Bassett are set to play the same roles they did in the first movie. Michaela Coel, who won an Emmy for her role in “I May Destroy You,” also joins the cast.
