Black Panther 2: Martin Freeman Also Curious To See How The Script Works Without Boseman

Black Panther 2 news! Can you believe it? We’re covering something other than The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Wowzers.

With all the attention on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and closer upcoming films like Spider-Man: No Way Home, it feels like we haven’t heard much about Black Panther 2 as of late.

Martin Freeman, who portrayed Evertt K. Ross in Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther, is back for the sequel and has a little insight on what’s going on behind the scenes.

Freeman told Collider:

“Yeah, I am doing the second Black Panther. I’m going to be speaking to Ryan Coogler soon about what shape that’s going to look like. I have no idea about the script [so] I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

After the death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman last year, Black Panther 2‘s fate was thrown into question, for a moment. The decision was made not to recast his character, but rather move forward with other characters from Wakanda.

At first, Freeman questioned how the film could go forward without Boseman:

Just before Chadwick died, if my memory serves correctly, the script had gone in. They had the script and they were working on the script, and then Chadwick died, and [I] sort of immediately thought, “Oh, okay, I could see a world where there’s no Black Panther then, because how can you do a Black Panther without Black Panther?” So, I still don’t know what that’s going to look like. And no, obviously, before Chad died, the idea of doing it without him would have been a stupid idea. It would have been crazy. It was very shocking, and still is very, very strange, that he is not here. So, I’m as curious as you are to see what that will look like and I find out quite soon. All I know is that I’m in it.

That’s the insight. There was a script and now only Ryan Cooglar seems to know what  is going on. At least we know we’re getting more Martin Freeman in Black Panther 2!
