Daniel Kaluuya will not be returning for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sequel.
Kaluuya, who will soon be seen in the Jordan Peele thriller Nope, plays W’Kabi, the best friend of T’Challa/Black Panther and Okoye’s husband, played by Danai Gurira, who is likely to return for the sequel, Wakanda Forever.
Kaluuya informed Rotten Tomatoes that he had to pull out owing to schedule difficulties with Peele’s movie, which is set to hit cinemas this month.
After the actor Chadwick Boseman passed away in August 2020 from colon cancer, the production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was beset with difficulties, and Marvel and the producers were forced to reconceive the project. The COVID-19 epidemic, which included numerous celebs testing positive for COVID while they were filming, further delayed the movie’s release. In August 2021, the actress Letitia Wright was injured while shooting a scene in Boston with a stunt rig. Wakanda Forever production came to hold in late November after the crew had recorded as much as possible without Wright as she continued to recover at her London home.
Wakanda Forever is still slated for release on November 11, 2022.
