    Chapter 2: Kevin Feige, Nate Moore, Ryan Coogler, Joe Robert Cole

    The story of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever emerged out of the very real death of Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played T’Challa. But there was an earlier version of the script, a different story written when no one involved in the movie knew that Chadwick was gravely ill. Ta-Nehisi Coates is joined by director and co-writer Ryan Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole to discuss the original screenplay, the changes they needed to make, what makes a Black Panther film, and their special collaboration on both movies. Ta-Nehisi also talks to producers Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, and Nate Moore, Executive of Production and Development, to learn about the 22-year journey to bring Black Panther to the screen and what excites them about Namor, comic book storytelling, and making movies.

It’s a privilege…

To have a Glimpse into this creative process.

You can see how special this collaboration is on the screen. Now I get to experience it through the eyes of the creators themselves. 🙏🏽💜

From one artist to another

As an audience member, you sit in awe of the echos of greatness, as you witness the beyond magical collaboration of collective efforts. This is what both Black Panther films provided for me, and so many others. However, what this podcast offers is a rare look at how that greatness we saw in theaters came to be, one podcast at a time!

Deep Dives and Deep Feels

I love this podcast. Mr. Coates does an amazing job hosting, bringing out hidden gems like the gifted journalist he is. The personal-ness of it is incredibly special. And as someone with mesoamerican heritage I so appreciated the conversation about how the values of these movies provided the scaffolding upon which to bring to life the world of Talocan with the same care as Wakanda. I felt that solidarity while watching the movie and it was so special to hear it talked about specifically.
