According to executive producer Nate Moore, the filmmakers behind the picture knew all along that T'Challa would perish in Infinity War, but that doesn't mean they won't be able to continue on with a sequel to Ryan Coogler's smash hit.
So someone coming in cold to Avengers: Infinity War will definitely feel like an outsider on a night out with a group of best friends, completely unaware of all the anecdotes, inside jokes or chemistry that everyone shares with one another.
British exhibition giant Cineworld Group, which earlier this year closed its acquisition of Regal Entertainment Group, on Wednesday reported higher revenue for the January-May 13 period, driven by the box-office success of Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
"We gave cheers...a few times".
While it isn't now clear if T'Challa will return for Black Panther 2, Nate Moore reveals that there are many ways that the story can be told. Be sure to tell us all of your thoughts in the comments down below! "We could this and this.' We were throwing ideas around". So I'm just going to do a couple curls while we are chatting. So I think as you move forward through the Marvel Cinematic Universe those stories will be told, if not right away pretty soon. Nakia is a globetrotting spy, so it's logical to assume that she possibly wasn't even in Wakanda when Thanos' army arrived, and W'Kabi was presumably locked up in prison during the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
That could happen as soon as this weekend, as the big-budget behemoth continues to draw the crowds into movie theatres nationwide. "So hopefully audiences can come to that and watch that film on its own terms and then hopefully shortly after that we can talk about where we think we can go".
