15 Jul – Daniel Kaluuya recently revealed that he is not a part of the upcoming sequel to the Marvel movie, "Black Panther".
The actor, who played the role of W'Kabi in the original released in 2018, shared in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes' Jacqueline Coley that he was unable to be a part of "Wakanda Forever" due to scheduling conflicts.
Kaluuya said that he was filming Jordan Peele's "Nope" when the Marvel film began production.
It is noted that Kaluuya's W'Kabi character is closely related to Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa - being the character's confidant and his best friend who is the head of security for the Border Tribe, serving as the first line of defense for Wakanda.
In a previous interview prior to the production of "Wakanda Forever", Kaluuya stated that he would be in the sequel if only the story needs it.
"I'm that kind of person if the story and the piece is better without me, I'm like, 'Yo, I'm going to watch this,' because I really want to watch it. And if I'm in it and I'm able to serve it, then I'm in it. And I just stay in that position," he added.
"Wakanda Forever" is set to be released in November.
