On Wednesday, October 26, 2022, stars assembled to walk the purple rug at El Capitan Theater in Hollywood to celebrate the premiere of Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Shot to some extent at the sound stages at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, the special world of Wakanda was imagined in new and compelling ways.
The celebration was not only for the films, legends, and whizzes – but the premiere also honoured the late Chadwick Aaron Boseman, the star of the series’ unique film who unfortunately died 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.”
Tyler Perry studiod is honored to be a part of the Black Panther legacy and they 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.
In the mean time, Tyler Perry is celebrating 30 years in show business this year, and has shared his journey on social media where he began from. As indicated by Perry, he never despised little beginnings, as he shared this on Twitter.
