Rihanna Rumored to Star in 'Black Panther 2'

Fans are freaking out after the star’s name appeared in the list of cast members confirmed for the sequel.

Following The Hollywood Reporter‘s announcement that sources have confirmed that the sequel to Marvel‘s Black Panther is set to begin shooting in Atlanta in July 2021, eager-eyed fans of the movie have spotted that Rihanna‘s name has been added to the list of cast members on Google, alongside returning names including Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Angela Basset and Danai Gurira.

Following the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman three months ago, it is unclear how the franchise will continue without the praised actor. Boseman made history in his role as King T’Challa, playing a Black superhero that kids all over the world looked up to and saw representation on the big screen, and the role will not be the same without him. Marvel has already confirmed that his role will not be re-cast, nor that Boseman will appear in the film through CGI, meaning that the sequel has been entirely re-scripted.

As for the addition of Rihanna to the cast, it is yet unclear whether the star will take on a role in the franchise. We have yet to hear from Marvel or the star herself, but the singer and entrepreneur has previously starred in films like Oceans Eight and Battleship, so she’s no stranger to acting. Stay tuned if any more information regarding the movie surfaces.
