THR also reports that Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico, Sin Nombre) has been cast as one of the sequel's unspecified villains.

Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away on August 28 at the age of 43.

Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett are also set to reprise their respective roles as Nakia, M'Baku and Queen Ramonda.

The recent passing of Chadwick Boseman obviously threw Marvel Studios' Black Panther 2 plans into turmoil, and last we heard, Kevin Feige and co. were taking time to mourn the actor and figure out their next move. "Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV".

As of now, it's unclear if Marvel will recast the role of Black Panther or go with Letitia Wright's Shuri as the new Black Panther, or use an entirely new actor or character, but THR's report says some are saying Wright's character may take on a more prominent role. "Sadly, our king has died in real life, not only in fiction, and we're taking a little time to see how we continue the story and how to honor this chapter of what has unexpectedly happened to us, so painful and bad to be honest", she explained. Following Chadwick Boseman's death, Coogler stated that he had been unaware of the actor's struggle, and that he had "spent the a year ago preparing, imagining and writing words for him to say [in the sequel], that we weren't destined to see". Originally, production was aiming to start in March 2021 for a May 6, 2022 release, but then then tragedy struck.

Returning director Ryan Coogler had been planning for the sequel to show T'Challa growing as a king, since his reign only began recently.

Chadwick Boseman's death has left an indelible mark in Hollywood, especially in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) where he was idolised as Black Panther. So we can appreciate the joy that comes from winning.
