The sequel to 2018’s mammoth blockbuster went into production under the most tragic of circumstances. Chadwick Boseman, who essayed the role of Black Panther in the 2018 movie, passed away in 2020 after fighting a tough battle with colon cancer. The film’s cast and crew started production in mourning but decided to stay committed to the film in honour of Chadwick’s memory.
Not surprisingly, the plot for the sequel parallels real-life events. In the sequel, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje are all mourning the passing of King T’Challa. While still grieving, they decide to join forces with Nakia and Everett Ross to take on the daunting army of water-breathing superhumans led by dangerous Namor.
