Brake alert: This story contains major spoilers for the finale and middle scene in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which is currently out in theaters.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” saves the biggest surprise for the credits scene. Shuri (Letitia Wright) visits Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) at her home in Haiti, where it is revealed that Nakia and the late T’Challah (Chadwick Boseman) had a son (Divine Love Konado Sun). Shuri meets her nephew, whose real name is revealed to be T’Challah. Wright opened up about the credits scene for the first time during a conversation with John Boyega for miscellaneous The series “Actors for Actors”.
“Obviously I watched your movie. I’m a Marvel fan, so I’m going to stay in the post-credits,” Boyega told Wright. “It’s an important scene that gives us an idea of the direction the Marvel Cinematic Universe is headed and is important to you, in terms of your path as an actress. How does it feel to be part of a landmark moment?”
“The post-credits scene for me is another extension of the ways we wanted to honor Chadwick – especially the role of T’Challa,” said Wright. In the film, which Chadwick wrote before his death, there is a father-son journey. Reading it, I felt like we had to find a way to carry on the legacy of what T’Challa meant to the world, especially to young black people. This scene spoiled me.”
Wright said she auditioned with two children who were in conflict over the role of her nephew. “Then the Divine came,” she added. “His name is divine. He had a little Chadwick Mohawk. Lupita Nyong’o and I kept looking at each other like, ‘This is the baby.’ That scene is beautiful because it represents what the future is going to be.”
In Ryan Coogler’s original Black Panther 2 script before Boseman’s death, T’Challah wrestled with being a father as well as the time he lost during The Blip. Because of this, there was always a theme of sadness and mourning in the movie even if the movie didn’t need to be repaired after Boseman’s death.
“The tone was going to be similar,” Coogler told Inverse of his original script. “The character would have grieved the loss of time, you know, coming back after being gone for five years. As a man with so much responsibility to so many, coming back after a forced absence of five years, that’s what the movie was dealing with. He was grieving the time he couldn’t come back. It was Grief is a big part of it.”
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” star Angela Bassett said. diverse Earlier this month she also filmed scenes with Divine Love Konadu-Sun, but they ended up on the cutting room floor.
“I shot a scene,” Bassett said. “I did, but you know—cutting room, remixing and remodeling. What does Ramonda say? Oh, ‘Shuri, there’s something I want to tell you.’ I went to Haiti, of course. I met him, got to know him…but it ended up being On the cutting room floor.”
According to Bassett, Coogler cut her scene with T’Challa’s son so that both viewers and Shuri could experience the shock of the moment together in real time. “It was the right way to go,” Bassett said.
