Black Panther broke barriers when it hit theaters in 2018.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Black Panther sequel is expected to start filming in July 2021. Production was initially scheduled to begin in March 2021. However, in the wake of Chadwick Boseman's death, the team decided to push it back.
"After his family released their statement, I realized that he was living with his illness the entire time I knew him," Coogler said in a personal statement. "Because he was a caretaker, a leader, and a man of faith, dignity and pride, he shielded his collaborators from his suffering. He lived a beautiful life. And he made great art. Day after day, year after year. That was who he was. He was an epic firework display. I will tell stories about being there for some of the brilliant sparks till the end of my days."
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Black Panther 2 will shoot in Atlanta for up to six months with Ryan Coogler back as director and alongside Michael B Jordan, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett.
