Black Panther 2 director, “I’m thinking about leaving the industry after Chadwick Bossman’s death.”
Director Ryan Coogler, who directed “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” (Black Panther 2), mentioned that he had considered quitting making the film.
Ryan Coogler confessed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly on the 3rd (local time) that “there was a time when I thought I should leave the industry.”
He said, “It was very painful, so I wondered if I could make another movie, let alone a sequel to ‘Black Panther’. “I wondered how I could feel this way again,” he explained.
Earlier, the late Chadwick Bosman died while battling colon cancer in August 2020, after the production of “Black Panther 2” was confirmed, shocking fans.
For this reason, the story of “Black Panther 2” has been changed and all production schedules have been postponed, but it is expected that Tchala will be treated as dead in the drama as Marvel Studios said it will not cast in place of the deceased.
Ryan Coogler said, “I reflected on the many conversations we had and realized that it was the end of his life. “I concluded that it was right to continue working,” he said.
“It’s my job as a filmmaker to work personally with sincerity,” he said. “If I don’t have faith in what I do, I’ll have a hard time getting others to work their best.”
“In order for them to do their best, they must have faith. After all, the choices we make must feel sincere. When filmmakers create things that don’t feel genuine, they will say that the project has no hope of success.”
Meanwhile, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is scheduled to be released on November 11 in North America.
