Tenoch Huerta, star of Netflix’s ‘Narcos: Mexico,’ is joining the cast of the untitled film from Ryan Coogler, sources tell THR.
Marvel Studio’s plans for the sequel to Black Panther are starting to come into focus.
The sequel was sidelined after the sudden and unexpected death of star Chadwick Boseman and a planned March 2021 production start was waylaid as filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Marvel tried to navigate grief and the need to move forward. It was the nadir of a year that saw no Marvel movies released for the first time since 2009.
However, even as the continuing novel coronavirus upends theatrical distribution and plays havoc with its Phase 4 rollout, Marvel is about to enter 2021 the busiest it has ever been as it juggles not only multiple movies but a major push into TV.
Multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Marvel is now readying Black Panther 2 for a shoot that will start in Atlanta in July and last for upwards of six months.
Will certainly miss Chadwick Boseman!
