Marvel’s Lupita Nyong’o on “really exciting” Black Panther 2 plans

Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o has teased that there are some “really exciting” plans in the pipeline when it comes to the Marvel movie’s eagerly-anticipated sequel.

During an appearance on Good Morning America recently, the Nakia actor opened up about how writer-director Ryan Coogler has had to shift character focus in the wake of Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death last year, as well as the studio’s subsequent decision not to recast the role.

Nyong’o also touched on the team’s determination to honour the franchise’s former lead on screen.

“It’s gonna be different, of course, without our king to go back into that world,” she said.

“But I know that all of us are dedicated to carrying on his legacy in this new Black Panther.

Her comments echo Daniel Kaluuya’s, who was asked about the follow-up while promoting his new drama Judas and the Black Messiah.

“For me, what’s important to me is not the Black Panther legacy, it’s the legacy of Chadwick Boseman, because that’s a human being and a spirit that is real,” the Golden Globe winner told The Ringer. “How can we honour that?

“Black Panther is going to do what Black Panther does, but that’s a man that lived for us. He did it for us, did it our nephews, our nieces, our kids. It’s our duty to honour that man the way he honoured us.”

Black Panther is currently available to stream on Disney+.
