21 Jul – Winston Duke recently confirmed that he will be returning as M'Baku in the upcoming "Black Panther" sequel, "Wakanda Forever".

The actor shared the good news with Collider while promoting the indie drama "Nine Days", saying that it was emotional for him to read the script, seeing that they will be working without lead actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last year.

"It was emotional to pack to go back to set. But we're all a bit of a family now and we grieve together, and we're making something really special," he said.

Duke, however, made no mention about what the movie will be about with the absence of T'Challa aka the Black Panther.

The movie has recently begun filming in Atlanta, with Ryan Coogler returning as writer and director. Marvel's Kevin Feige previously revealed that the main cast from the first film will return, but named no names.

However, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman earlier confirmed that they will be returning as well.
