Winston Duke, aka M’Baku in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has confirmed that he will be a part of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
While Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has in the past indicated that the main actors of the first Black Panther will all be back in the sequel, still directed by Ryan Coogler, he had not mentioned any names at the time.
Since then, several comedians have confirmed that they would come back in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) and Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross) or more recently Angela Bassett (Ramonda). Danai Gurira (Okoye) was also officially announced to the cast.
Today, it’s Winston Duke’s turn to talk about the film, currently in production. Interviewed by Collider, the actor who plays M’Baku, the leader of the Jabari tribe, shared his feelings about the filming of this sequel without Chadwick Boseman, who died last year.
“It was very emotional reading the script. It was emotional packing my suitcase for the shoot”, He explains. And to continue: “But we are all a family now and we are grieving together. We are doing something really special.”
Expected in theaters on July 6, 2022, Black Panther 2 should therefore pay a tribute to the interpreter of T’Challa.
