2 min read

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” star Letitia Wright speaks out diversity during the official digital pre-show at the Golden Globes and discussed the anticipated third chapter in the “Black Panther” saga.

Talked to Wright diversity Chief Correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister, who asked, “When are we going to get ‘Black Panther 3’ greenlit?”

“I think it’s already working,” Wright replied. “You know, we’ve had a great two years getting it out there and everyone coming together to support it. We need a break, we need to regroup and [director] Ryan [Coogler] Gotta go back to the lab, so it’s going to take a while, but we’re really excited for you to see it.”

When pressed for more, Wright said, “I always try to put out positive words and positive thoughts, and I believe that good words come out, so I’m putting out a ‘Black Panther 3,’ why not?”

for diversityIn the November 2022 cover story about “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Coogler and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige talked about a possible third chapter. At the time, Coogler said he “definitely” had “no idea what I was going to do next as a writer and director.”

But Feige said that while he was in “conversations” with Coogler about a third “Black Panther” movie, “ideas have been pitched back and forth.”

Asked if he would ever consider making a “Black Panther” movie without Coogler, Feige demurred, citing the death of “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman.

I go back to what I said when we decided to do ‘Wakanda Forever’ after losing Chad,” he said. “This mythology and this combination and these characters deserve to continue and continue after we’re all gone, I hope. And will continue forever in films like comics for over 50 years.”

Feige added, however, that working without Coogler “wouldn’t be an option.”

when arrived diversityA representative for Marvel Studios declined to comment further.

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has grossed $831 million worldwide since its Nov. 11 release date.
