Letitia Wright and Lupita Nyong’o talk about carrying on Chadwick Boseman’s legacy in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

Stars of Black Panther speak candidly about continuing the legacy of the late actor Chadwick Boseman.

After Chadwick Boseman’s terrible death in August 2020, Marvel touched fans’ hearts by releasing the first teaser for the much awaited sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Given how important Boseman was to the success of the first instalment, many people had their doubts about the franchise’s future.

The cast of the movie discussed how the series is continuing Boseman’s legacy in a recent interview with ET. The movie’s Nakia, played by Lupita Nyong’o, praised director Ryan Coogler as she spoke. “On set, he establishes a certain tone and atmosphere that emphasises teamwork. It involves collaboration, family, and intimacy. And the two of you kind of go through the fire—and, Lord, there were flames. As a result, it unites us all.” She also said how “very, very poignant” it was to see their artwork put together at the event.

Later, she added, “and to determine the significance to an audience. We cry because of this specific narrative because of how visceral it is.” Letitia Wright, who portrays Shuri, echoed her feelings when she said, “It’s obviously a family, it was a family from the very beginning.” The family has grown somewhat and we have a few new members, but like Lupita mentioned, it’s a fantastic alignment of spirits and people who genuinely care and people who really want to respect the tradition that we are trying to continue on of what Chadwick began, and we’re really just thankful to have each other.

Coogler commented on losing Boseman on stage at the convention, saying, “It’s been five years since I was here.” He said, “I can now feel his touch on me as I stand here with you. Although Chad is no longer physically present, his spirit, pride, and culture, as well as his influence on the business, will go on forever.”
