Marvel first introduced the character, 'Black Panther' to its audience back in 2016, when Chadwick Boseman first starred as T'Challa/'Black Panther' in 'Captain America: Civil War'. However, after two years Marvel released the prequel of 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'. It still remains the first Marvel Studios film with a Black director and a predominantly Black cast. Speaking of the cast, apart from Boseman, the viewers saw Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. 

However, for the new movie due to the depressing reality, Marvel chose not to recast the role of T'Challa as Boseman died out of Colon cancer. Other main cast members from the first film were confirmed to return. Regardless, amid all the promotions, the director of 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever', Ryan Coogler confessed in a recent interview how the 'Black Panther' sequel movie had a similar storyline to 'Avengers: Endgame' story. After the interview surfaced online, fans were appalled by the statement, while some are still grieving over not seeing their favorite Boseman as T'Challa, others are annoyed with the creators for not recasting anyone in the role of T'Challa. 


Fans hope for 'no spoilers' after Marvel Studios’ 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' world premiere

'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' initial reactions call it Marvel's 'most powerful film'

As we know, many vanished from the Marvel universe after 'Avengers: Infinity War' when Thanos used the Infinity Stones to wipe out half the universe. The 'Black Panther' returned five in-universe years later at the climax of 'Avengers: Endgame'. In its original form, Coogler saw his sequel as a story where T’Challa struggles to resume life after "The Blip.”

Coogler said in an interview with Inverse, “The tone was going to be similar. The character was going to be grieving the loss of time, you know, coming back after being gone for five years. As a man with so much responsibility to so many, coming back after a forced five years absence, that’s what the film was tackling. He was grieving a time he couldn’t get back. Grief was a big part of it.”

Sadly, after Boseman died, Coogler worked with co-writer Joe Robert Cole to frame a new story, whilst the plot and protagonist changed, there are still pieces of 'Wakanda Forever' left from Coogler’s original script.

However, after the interview surfaced online, fans felt Coogler was trying to oversell the film while some thought the character of T'Challa is not much explored. A fan said, "Ryan Coogler sucks. In his hands, Black Panther franchise will have nothing but grief. Hated it. And without T'challa it is all pointless. F**k this movie." While another added, "Why hell kill off the fractional character of T'Challa? Oh because the first actor to portrayed him died in real life. T'Challa was created 1966 during the historical Civil Rights Movement era. He is the first black superhero who was a LEAD in mainstream comics."

A fan tweeted, "It's hard to even make sense of honestly. Black Panther's time in the MCU has been a debacle from the start with them not even giving him a proper origin story to show his importance to these casuals. I don't think we can get good black panther content out of these people." A fan shared, "How??? How could BP2 ever achieve a similar ending to Endgame??? Simple: it couldn’t. Quit trying to make this movie bigger than what it really is: mediocre."





'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' premiered at the El Capitan Theatre and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on October 26, 2022, and will be released in the United States on November 11, 2022, as the final film in Phase Four of the MCU.
