PHOTOS: Celebrities on the Purple Carpet at the Black Panther World Premiere
The long-awaited Black Panther premiere, which was initially impacted by Covid-19 and the death of one of the film's main characters, Chadwick Boseman, was on October 26 and will be released on November 11, 2022.
The director Ryan Coogler and the film’s star-studded cast paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.
“I spent the last year preparing, imagining, and writing words for him to say, that we weren’t destined to see. It leaves me broken knowing that I won’t be able to watch another close-up of him in the monitor again or walk up to him and ask for another take,” director Ryan stated.
Kevin Feige, the CEO of Marvel Studios, also shared his thoughts on Boseman, expressing gratitude that they were able to collaborate, even if it was for such a short time.
“I got to have him in my life for the short time that I did. More importantly, he did it at such a young age, such a body of work, that it will last forever. Generation after generation after generation will get to feel his presence,” Feige stated.
Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, Angela Bassett, and Martin Freeman reprise their roles. Tenoch Huerta as Namor and Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams/Ironheart will both make their MCU debuts in the film.
With a running time of two hours and 41 minutes, the remake will be the MCU's second-longest title after Avengers: Endgame.
Celebrities and main characters who attended the event could not hide their fashion sense as they marched out in very classy and elegant outfits.
