“I promise you, I can feel his hand on me right now.”

Speaking on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the director said: “It goes to new places in Wakanda that we haven’t seen before and it goes to new places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

“The visuals of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are beautiful,” wrote another tweep.

Tobagonian actor Winston Duke, who plays M’Baku in Black Panther, told Variety that the cast felt Chadwick Boseman’s presence while filming. 

“We felt the lack of having him there every single day. He was a very powerful, gentle leader. That didn’t need to say much for you to know that he was the leader of the movie,” said Duke. 

“With people like that, you feel them so much more when they’re not there. Together we mourned.”
