Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyongo has admitted that the upcoming sequel in the “Black Panther” franchise will be different, following lead actor Chadwick Boseman’s death last year due to cancer.
“It’s gonna be different, of course, without our King to go back into that world, but I know that all of us are dedicated to re-imagining or carrying on his legacy in this new Black Panther,” she said during her appearance on Good Morning America, as reported by Entertainment Tonight.
“(Director) Ryan Coogler has some really, really exciting ideas that I look forward to bringing to life with the rest of the family,” she added.
Chadwick Boseman played the role of King T’Challa/Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He died last year due to colon cancer.
Recently, Boseman’s wife Simone Ledward Boseman got teary-eyed and gave an emotional speech on behalf of the late actor for his Golden Globes win. Boseman bagged the Golden Globe award in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category. Boseman won the accolade for his portrayal of Levee Green in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’. The George C Wolfe directorial marked Boseman’s final film role.
With this award win, Boseman became just the second posthumous winner in the category’s history.
