"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" will honor Chadwick Boseman and his legacy, and there were no better hands for the film to be in than his good friends’. Director Ryan Coogler recently appeared on an episode of "Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast" and discussed the upcoming film at length and also recounted his last phone call with Boseman.
Coogler needed about 20 seconds of silence before he could start talking about Boseman and admitted he had been trying to get a hold of Boseman for a few days before they finally connected for what would be their last phone call together. After talking about weddings and babies, Ryan Coogler and Chadwick Boseman's conversation moved on to the "Black Panther" sequel.
According to Coogler, Boseman said he didn't want to read the finished script because he didn't want to get in the way of any notes the studio might have, so he said he'd read it after they did. The director then admitted he found out later on that Boseman couldn't read the script because he was just too tired.
