On Wednesday, October 26, 2022, stars gathered to walk the purple carpet at El Capitan Theater in Hollywood to celebrate the premiere of Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Filmed in part at our sound stages at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, the unique world of Wakanda was envisioned in new and exciting ways.
A celebration not only of cinema, heroes, and superstars – the premiere also honored the late Chadwick Aaron Boseman, the star of the series’ original film who tragically passed away in August of 2022. “He was a giant of a man, the screen couldn’t contain him. To watch his movies is only to know a piece of him,” Director Ryan Coogler told Deadline. “We felt so fortunate to know the whole guy, and we try to honor him on this one.” Coogler is known for his work directing several influential films such as Fruitvale Station, the Creed Saga, and the Oscar-winning Judas and the Black Messiah. “It’s my hope that his career follows the path of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, because he’s that level of brilliant,” Tyler said in an interview with Variety, “this level of creativity needs its own lane.”
We are honored to be a part of the Black Panther legacy and we look forward to fans’ reactions worldwide as this special project makes its overseas debut on November 9 and its domestic premiere on November 11, 2022.
