According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is preparing to start shooting Black Panther 2 in Atlanta next year. Filming for the highly-anticipated movie is set to begin in July 2021 and last at least six months. Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett are expected to return for the new film.
Despite the filming plans in place, many fans are wondering what is in store for the Black Panther franchise following the death of Boseman. Some theorize that Wright’s Shuri will become the new Black Panther as this storyline is played out in the comics. However, it is still too soon to tell how Marvel plans to approach Black Panther 2.
