‘Black Panther 2’ Will Honor Chadwick Boseman’s Memory
In a recent interview, Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o — who plays Nakia — revealed director Ryan Coogler has reworked elements of the movie sequel in honor of the late Chadwick Boseman.
“We have a leader in Ryan, who feels very much like we do, who feels the loss in a very, very real way as well. And his idea, the way in which he has reshaped the second movie is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world. So it feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure.”
