Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler has opened up about continuing the sequel without the late lead actor, Chadwick Boseman.
In recent episode of the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast, Coogler revealed that working on ‘Black Panther II’ without Chadwick Boseman has been the hardest experience of his life.
“This is one of the more profound things that I’ve gone through in my life, having to be a part of keeping this project going without this particular person who is like the glue who held it together,” He said.
“I’m trying to find a work-life balance. But I’m not there yet, so this is without a question the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my professional life.”
The second part of the famous movie is expected to premiere in July 2022. It will reportedly pay tribute to Boseman who died last year after a prolonged battle with cancer.
It has now been confirmed that the sequel written by Joe Robert Cole and Ryan Coogler will not recast anyone in the role of T’Challa to replace Boseman nor will there be a digital double.
