What Was The Original Story Of 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'?
WRITTEN BY NISHANT BHISE
'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' brought a wave of emotions watching the story of Wakanda in absence of Chadwick Boseman aka King T'Challa unfold.
The film grossed $790 million worldwide. It followed the story post the death of T'Challa, where Ramonda and Shuri are grieving and navigating the world without him. There is also the looming fear of world eyeing at Vibranium and Namor, a new foe emerging on the surface
But, the director, Ryan Coogler had a different idea written on the paper before the death of Chadwick Boseman.
He had a narrative where King T'Challa reunites with his son Toussaint. Ryan wanted a father-son narrative, but from father's perspective.
While talking to The New York Times, Coogler told they do not know what to do with the Blip. He wanted the father's perspective, because the 2018 film had been from the sons' perspective.
Touissant is the son, which we see in the post-credit when Shuri goes to Haiti and meets Nakia, with whom 'Challa was to co-parent him.
Coogler wrote that Chadwick's character is away from his son, but after three years they reunite together and along with Shakia, King would have had co-parented the son, who introduces as T'Challa in the post-credit
The director wanted it to be a summer film where the father and son goes into the wilderness to spend some quality time, before T'Challa had to leave to look after a calamity on the earth.
