“I walked into this trying to manage my expectations because the really powerful thing of Black Panther one, was that it was so special, it was such a big watershed moment that it can’t be recreated. So I walked in thinking +let’s not expect Black Panther one”, said Winston Duke, playing M’Baku in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.
Another actress, Dominique Thorne, playing Riri in “Black Panther : Wakanda Forever” added:
“I think we all understand just how necessary and how special this project, coming at this moment in time is, for a variety of reasons, and when you think about the people, the minds, the talents, coming together to tell that story, it’s absolutely a spiritual experience”, she admitted.

Black Panther actress Florence Kasumba evoked the memory of original lead actor Chadwick Boseman who died from cancer in 2020.
“Well, he has been a role model from Day One. When I started working on this in 2015, you know, he was someone who was extremely positive and determined and like disciplined. So, when we worked on the first movie, we got a feeling of how important it is to be true to these stories and to give everything we have. Nothing has changed. And especially now that he’s not with us, I still feel him. Yeah, there’s not a single day where I’m not thinking of him. And anytime I hear ‘Black Panther,’ I think of him. And that’s good” confessed Florence Kasumba.
