Remembering The Black Panther:

Unfortunately, Chadwick Boseman was not able to make an appearance in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” He died in 2020 because of cancer that he was fighting for a long time. Although he may have passed, the director of “Black Panther” made sure to include him in this movie as well.

The director said it was a challenge and was not sure if he should have replaced Black Panther or not. In the end, he chose not to, because it felt like that character was for Boseman only. Instead, he added a funeral scene in memory of him and made sure Boseman’s favorite character “Shuri” was the star of this movie. This movie is all about empowerment and using your pain to fight for justice and equality. The movie overall has positive reviews. Make sure to check it out.
