“Just announced at D23 Expo, Ryan Coogler returns to direct Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER 2, in theaters May 6, 2022.”
Following Chadwick’s unfortunate and unexpected passing, Letitia Wright, who played the role of T’Challa’s sister Shuri, in Black Panther says she is still in mourning, and can’t fathom the thought of a Black Panther sequel without him.
“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about. The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it.”
Letitia Wright, expressed her pain after learning of Chadwick’s passing and tweeted:
“This hurts. This really hurts.”
She also posted an audio tribute to the late actor on her Instagram, in a poem in his honor.
“I messaged you a couple times, but I thought you were just busy. I didn’t know you were dealing with so much,” she recited in a video shared on Instagram. “But against all the odds, you remained focused on fulfilling your purpose with the time handed to you.”
“…I thought we had more time, and many more years to come, for more laughter,” the poem continued, before she concluded, “…And all that’s left now is for us to allow all the seeds that you have planted on the earth to grow, to blossom, to become even more beautiful. You’re forever in my heart. “
