While Marvel Studios is set to release Chloe Zhao's upcoming blockbuster The Eternals on 5th November 2021, the film producer Nate Moore has revealed that studios another highly-anticipated blockbuster Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has its production going very smoothly, and the cast and the crew of the film are back in full action.

"We're shooting in Atlanta and it's going really well, Ryan Coogler's back and he's fantastic and the crew is back and we know we have big shoes to fill and we just want a film that, hopefully, people can respond to and be entertained by and get some catharsis by spending time with. That's a tall order, but we want to be up to the challenge," Moore revealed while speaking with Variety at The Eternals premiere.

The VP of Production & Development at the studio Moore was then asked if and how the cast of Wakanda Forever honored the late Chadwick Boseman. Yeah, in their own ways, in sort of personal and private ways," he answered that the filmmakers are going to do their best to maintain the story in its entirety. "But the truth is the biggest honor is to maintain that story of Wakanda. Chad knew I think before any of us, how important it could be for people. So it's our job to keep that spirit alive so that kids can continue to find that world and find themselves in that world."

Moore when asked about Marvel studios pushing back the release dates of all its 2022-23 films. Moore answered confidently, "Nov. 11 of next year, so we'll be out here next year for Black Panther 2." He appeared unconcerned by the shift, saying "It just gives us more time to get it right."

After featuring in the titular role of Black Panther also known as King T'Challa in the superhero-based franchise Marvel Cinematic Universe's blockbusters Black Panther released in 2018, Avengers Infinity War released in 2018, and Avengers Endgame released in 2019, the actor, unfortunately, died on 28 August 2020 at just an age of 44 years due to Cancer.

Lupita Nyong'o, who played the role of Nakia with Chad in studios two superhero films revealed that Black Panther's sequel filmmaker Ryan Coogler has directed the film in such a way that it will pay tribute to Chad Boseman. "We have a leader in Ryan, who feels very much like we do, who feels the loss in a very, very real way as well," she explained. "And his idea, the way which he has reshaped the second movie is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world. So it feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us, and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure," she said.

Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently set to release in theatres on 30th June 2023.
