Just yesterday, Variety confirmed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has entered production in Atlanta. marvel Studios president confirmed it in an interview with the publisher, where he also promised that they will make Chadwick Boseman proud, as they continue his legacy after his tragic passing. Plot details are still kept tightly under wraps. So far, we only heard from Illuminerdi that the film will introduce the world to the prince of Atlantis, Namor played by Tenoch Huerta. It looks like Discussing Film may have gotten their hands on an interesting detail, as they reveal that cinematographer Autumn Durald has joined the project.
She’ll replace Ryan Coogler‘s collaborator Rachel Morrison, who worked on the first film. Durald has recently worked on the Loki Disney+ series and was the cinematographer on all six episodes. She has also worked with Gia Coppola on her debut film, Palo Alto and Mainstream. Morrison sadly had to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts, as she is working on her directorial debut Flint Strong. Perhaps it’ll give her an opportunity to join a future Marvel Studios project in a new role.
We still don’t know which actors are reprising their roles, but as Variety points out Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett seem likely to return. As it has started production, we might get a clearer picture on the film’s plot in the near future.
