Director Ryan Cooglar is back to helm the project, with the cast of the original Oscar-nominated film returning as well, except for Boseman, who passed away last year.

“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” Feige at a fan event on Tuesday night. “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.”
