With a pandemic at stake and the painful departure of Chadwick Boseman, any plans Marvel Studios had for the future of Black Panther had to be temporarily halted and obviously rethought. However, almost three months after the death of its star, it seems that the House of Ideas has completely reactivated the machinery in order to erect a sequel, in addition to revealing some news. For example, that the Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta is in talks to join the cast of Black panther 2.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Ariel winner enlists his MCU debut, using a antagonistic role not yet revealed. Along with the addition of Tenoch Huerta to Black Panther 2, Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Winston Duke (M’Baku), Angela Bassett (Ramonda) and Letitia Wright (Shuri) are also expected to reprise their respective roles in this project. , which will again feature Ryan Coogler in the executive chair.
Likewise, the medium reports that, at this time, Marvel Studios prepares the ground to start filming this second part in July 2021, calculating a productive duration of six months. The cameras would begin filming in Atlanta, Georgia, where production on Spider-Man 3 is currently taking place.
In terms of pending projects, the company led by Kevin Feige just kicked off the filming of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness this month, and has yet to do the same with Thor: Love & Thunder in February of next year. These films are the last contemplated for Phase 4 of the MCU, an ambitious stage of the multi-million dollar franchise that has not even been able to be inaugurated due to the health crisis. The premiere of the primeval film and television productions, respectively Black Widow and WandaVision, was postponed to 2021.
Hopefully next year, when the filming of Black Panther 2 also happens, it will be more benevolent for the industry (and for everyone).
Tenoch Huerta comes from playing the criminal Rafael Caro Quintero in the series Narcos: Mexico, in addition to starring in the Netflix movie Black fire. He has been nominated five times for the Ariel Award (awarded by the Mexican Film Academy), winning in 2012 for the thriller Days of Grace.
