Marvel's 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' adds Michaela Coel
- United States
Her character details have been kept under wraps.
''Black Panther'', which released in 2018, was the first superhero to feature a virtually all-black cast, led by Chadwick Boseman.
The sequel was expected to start production last year but after the sudden death of Boseman in August 2020 due to colon cancer, the studio had to alter its plan.
Much of the cast of Marvel’s first ''Black Panther'' film, which includes Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, and Winston Duke, is returning for the much-awaited follow-up movie.
The sequel will not recast Boseman's role of T'Challa aka superhero Black Panther.
Coel found global fame last year after the massive success of her BBC One/HBO series ''I May Destroy You''. She recently received four Emmy nominations. In addition to writing, directing and producing, Coel starred in the show as a popular writer processing rape trauma in contemporary London.
