'Black Panther' which was the 18th film of the MCU has returned with the sequel 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,' after making its fans wait for four years. In the previous movie, as we all know, Chadwick Boseman was the heart of the film as he starred as T'Challa aka 'Black Panther' but this time there will be a new 'Black Panther.' After the huge success of the film producer Kevin Feige said there were "many, many stories" to tell about the character, and he wanted director and co-writer Ryan Coogler to return for any sequels.

Coogler wanted to see how Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa aka Black Panther would grow as a king in future films since his reign only recently began in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in contrast to the comics in which he had been king since childhood. However, that sadly did not happen as 'Black Panther' star Chadwick Boseman died from colon cancer on August 28, 2020, and Marvel chose not to recast his role of T'Challa out of respect for the actor but as one knows the show must go on thus the other main cast members from the first film were confirmed to return.
