The sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever should be released in November. In that film, Boseman’s character also died. Wakanda Forever is largely about the consequences of his death.
Feige tells Empire that Marvel should be a reflection of the real world. “Our characters and stories are special and imaginative, but everything we do has a recognizable and human aspect,” Feige said.
According to the studio boss, the world is still processing Boseman’s death and director Ryan Coogler has incorporated that into the film.
Black Panther received rave reviews. The film was also seen as a cultural phenomenon, as it featured an almost entirely black cast and crew.
