The death of Chadwick Bousman forced Marvel Studios to change the entire plan to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The death of Chadwick Bousman forced Marvel Studios to change the entire plan to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, including the after-title scene.

Before Black Panther 2 was released in theaters, critics said the film would only include one scene after the credits, breaking Marvel’s long-standing trend of showing two scenes (or more). This is only the fifth time since 2015 that the MCU has had only one scene in a film (or none at all).

Next up, the spoilers!

The scene after the credits touches on the legacy of the Black Panther, showing that Nakia and the late T’Challa had a son. On top of that, the young man even got the same name as his father, giving the MCU a new T’Challa.

Speaking to Collider, Marvel Studios vice president Nate Moore spoke about the changes that were made to the scene after the credits following Bousman’s death. According to him, the plan was always to introduce Nakia’s son, but the moment was thematically re-profiled:.

We planned this scene. It was always a beautiful ending, especially after Chad died. I think the first draft we got was a scene. The character in it actually pre-dates Chad’s death, to be perfectly honest. We always like the idea of…

I did. But after Chad died, the episode was re-themed, and hopefully it feels like relief after adversity.

The producer then praised director Ryan Coogler for finding “a way to possibly do the impossible” by mixing emotion with everything that happens in the real world, and “fulfilling the promise” by introducing new heroes and villains like Nemo and Ironheart.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has grossed over $330 million worldwide.
