Oscar Award winning actress  Lupita Nyong’o has recently   opened up on how  it is not going to be easy filming the sequel of Marvel’s successful superhero movie Black Panther following the death of lead star Chadwick Boseman who played Marvel’s African king, T’Challa, and died in August last year.

In a recent interview, Lupita disclosed that it is unimaginable how it will be like to step on set and not have Chadwick there.

“People will ask me, ‘Are you excited to go back?’ Excitement isn’t the word. I feel like I’m in a very pensive and meditative state when it comes to Black Panther 2. His passing is still extremely raw for me,” Nyong’o says before her voice starts to crack. “And I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like to step on set and not have him there.”

“But at the same time, we have a leader in Ryan, who feels very much like we do, who feels the loss in a very, very real way as well,” she said.


“And his idea, the way in which he has reshaped the second movie is so respectful of the loss we’ve all experienced as a cast and as a world,” 

“So, it feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us, and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure,”stated Lupita.
