“It’s been 5 years since I was here,” Coogler said as he took the stage, remembering previous events with Boseman, to massive applause from the crowd. “Standing with you here right now… I can feel his hand on me now.”
“Chad is no longer with us physically, but his spirit, his pride and culture and his impact on the industry will be felt forever,” he added.
“We’re ready to invite you back to Wakanda,” Nyong’o shared with the crowd after the cast went on the stage.
Wright stated that returning for the sequel “felt like coming home,” while Duke called it a “labour of love… I’m filled with so much gratitude to be here.”
“I’m just so excited for you guys to see what we filmed,” Kasumba agreed.
The panel furthermore introduced Tenoch Huerta as Namor, the Submariner and Dominique Thorne as Ironheart.
As promised by Marvel Studios, Boseman’s character was not recast with a different actor following his death. However, the trailer revealed that someone would assume the mantle of the superhero’s responsibilities by donning a new Black Panther suit.
