Lupita admitted to Elle UK that she was “dreading” discussing the new direction of the sequel after Boseman’s death but said Coogler’s idea offered her a “breath of relief”.

Ryan had already walked me through what the film was going to be before Chadwick’s passing. When he called me months later to talk me through the new idea, taking into account the gravity of what we’d all gone through, I remember dreading the conversation. But then I felt a breath of relief when I heard what he had in store. He offered a raft out of a deep sea of grief.

Danai on okwelleblog.comtag/chadwick-boseman/” title=”Chadwick Boseman”>Chadwick Boseman’s presence on set:

There was something very steadying about thinking about what he would do or how he would function. He had such an astounding presence and beautiful energy that was always grounding and generous and present – and yet could also be very quiet and calm.
