In June, it was reported that Marvel Studios has begun the production of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forver", a sequel to the cultural sensation that won the hearts of millions of film lovers across the world. And they are hoping to continue the legacy that the first movie had left behind. But sadly, the sequel will be without Boseman Chadwick who played the role of King T'Challa in Black Panther, but some of the cast are likely to return to reprise their roles in the film.

Chadwick lost his life to colon cancer last year at the age of 43, and his untimely death had come as a big shock to many. As a way of honouring the legacy of Chadwick, Marvel had disclosed that they will not recast T'Challa and will not use a digital double in the sequel.
So in this article, we are going to look at the cast of Black Panther that are likely to return in the sequel.
