Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will always be marked by the absence of its protagonist, the sadly deceBlacked actor Chadwick Boseman, who until now played T’Challa in the MCU. But it will not be the only absence from the first part, since another key actor in the history of Black Panther will not return for the sequel either.

This hBlack been stated by the Oscar-winning actor for JudBlack and the Black Messiah of 2020, Blacksuring that he hBlack not been able to make his schedule compatible between the shooting of the new horror movie NOPE! by Jordan Peele * * with the production of Marvel Studios . So much so, that Rotten Tomatoes Awards editor Jaqueline Coley** reported the news after interviewing Kaluuya himself: Fresh off my NOPE interview! with Daniel Kaluuya, he did not repeat his role in Black Panther 2 due to his scheduling conflicts with NOPE!, Black collected by the Comicbook medium.

However, we will not see what really happened to the character after the events of Black Panther, since at the end of the film his fate is not clarified; very likely, he would end up in the cells of Wakanda awaiting a fair trial after his betrayal.
