cast and crew of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever I spent months talking fairly openly about how I was feeling. continuation of the movie Even without original lead actor Chadwick Boseman, we’re more vague about what the sequel would have been like without his unexpected death in 2020. go for gold As with the first film, the question of what could have been floated around the final product. The 2022 film was previously said to be “similar in spirit” to the original pitch, but unsurprisingly, the official didn’t elaborate on that.
In a recent interview with new york timesdirector Ryan Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole talked about their first pitch Wakanda Forever, And it sounds like it’s thematically in line with what’s showing in theaters right now. But before that, we need this…
Coogler has said in the past: Wakanda Forever Initially, it would have focused on T’Challa’s feeling of loss after he disappeared from existence. Avengers: Infinity War and 5 years later Avengers: EndgameThat sense of movement would have been a key theme of the film. Toussaint (also known as T’Challa II) in its final moments Wakanda Forever, He originally had a much bigger role in the sequel, as played by Divine Love Konadu-Sun.
“It was going to be a father-son story from the father’s perspective,” Coogler said. “The first film was a father-son story seen from the perspective of the sons.” Like the first film, the opening scene is an animated sequence in which Nakia asks Toussaint to tell him what she knows about her father. , and the audience finds out that Toussaint does not know that his father is the Black Panther. It’s the next night, and you’ve seen T’Challa meet her for the first time.”
From there, Coogler would have gone on to include a sequence in which T’Challa’s co-parents Toussaint and Nakia spent the next three years living on Wakanda land and spending Toussaint’s eighth birthday. Chara would have had to take his son and save the world. Namor (Tenoch Huerta Mejjia) was still intended as the antagonist, but he would have been one of the main villains. Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) would have been his second. “It was basically a three-way conflict between Wakanda, the United States and Talokan. But it was all from a child’s perspective.”
how much black panther The film (and Coogler’s filmography) is rooted in the idea of heritage and paternity. Still, I can’t help but wonder what that kind of movie would have been like. Because Marvel’s movies aren’t just focused on the main character having her own family, they’re also focused on how Coogler and Cole take it. A father and son story would have been different than what we usually get in that respect.
