It appears there will be a Black Panther 2 movie in the making very soon. This is according to Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett who appeared on the red carpet of the SAG Awards last weekend.
When asked if the entire cast of Black Panther would return for a sequel of the movie, Angela Bassett excitedly said:
“I would assume so.
Her husband Courtney B. Vance chipped in:
“Yes, just go ahead and say it, yes! Everyone will be there, including Michael B!””
Speaking on the impact the movie had on the society, Courtney said:
“I just like the way it changed society. It was all about Wakanda forever. And those kind of films, when they come around you’ve got to lift them up…For me, that movie changed society, so give it what it’s due.”
Angela Bassett added:
“A movie of this style, it has a hard time. It’s accepted by the audiences, of course it’s a global sensation, all of that, but the award [shows] tend to push them to the side. But it’s such a well-crafted, well-made, beautiful story — big moments, big themes, and I think it’s so utterly worthy.”
Black Panther is currently nominated for six Academy Awards part of which including Best Original Music Score and Best Picture.
The movie won two SAG awards: Outstanding Cast Performance and Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble.
