In somewhat of a spoiler alert, someone who was recently on the production set for Blank Panther 2 revealed some of the Wakandan decor fans can expect.
A video that has been scrapped off Instagram but reposted on Twitter shows a cellphone camera sharing footage from inside Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, where Wakanda Forever is being filmed .
The person behind the leaked footage pans over what appears to be construction on the highly-anticipated movie. While nothing has been confirmed, it shows a massive set with black panther statues, gold pillars, and elaborate tapestries.
“BREAKING: The first behind the scenes look at BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER has surfaced online,” the fan account Black Panther: Wakanda Forever News captioned the tweet. “The video gives us a close look at one of the films sets, as it’s being constructed.”
Late last month, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirmed that production has begun for Wakanda Forever with the original cast. The lone omission is the original film’s star, Chadwick Boseman, who died last August from colon cancer.
“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” Feige told Variety. “But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We’re going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud.”
Details on the plot and official cast haven’t been revealed. But among the original cast set to return include Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, and Florence Kasumba.
There were recent reports that Emmy-nominated actress Michaela Coel had signed on to join the Wakanda Forever cast, with sources saying Coel had joined director Ryan Coogler at Pinewood Studios in recent weeks.
Michael B. Jordan even teased a possible return of his character Killmonger despite the character’s death in the first film. “If there’s anyone that’s going to figure it out, [director Ryan Coogler] is going to figure it out,” Jordan said on the podcast Jemele Hill is Unbothered.
