Though he won’t be reprising his role in the MCU with “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Daniel Kaluuya seems eager to watch the film as a fan.
At the Los Angeles premiere of “Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul,” the actor shared his thoughts on the first trailer for “Wakanda Forever.” Kaluuya’s producing credits on this comedy feature Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown.
Yes, of course I’ve seen it before! When asked by Marc Malkin of Variety about the trailer, Kaluuya shared his thoughts. Absolutely incredible, you might say.
Kaluuya then discussed how he felt about the show continuing on without him. Kaluuya played W’Kabi, a close friend of the late Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa and the love interest of Danai Gurira’s Okoye, in the first “Black Panther.” Previously, Kaluuya had stated that he would be unable to return for “Wakanda Forever” because of his commitment to filming Jordan Peele’s sci-fi horror film “Nope.”
“It’s what’s best for the story, what’s best for the film,” Kaluuya said. I can’t wait. It’s something I’m looking forward to seeing.
Kaluuya was cagey when asked about his future with Marvel Studios.
“I can’t tell you, and you know it!” It made Kaluuya giggle. “That’s where you should begin!”
Kaluuya also talked about “Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul,” a film he helped produce about the married leaders of a megachurch who have to start over after being embroiled in a public scandal. The feature length film was inspired by a short of the same name that was released in 2018.
After viewing the short, I thought, “Wow, this is incredible. Kaluuya began by saying, “They have a film right there,” before going on to describe the unique challenges he faces in his new role as a producer. “It’s so satisfying to watch something expand and develop. A certain distance is added to your storytelling. You can aid it, feel it, and see it; it offers a new perspective.
“Beep your horn in honor of Christ. “Save Your Soul” premieres in theaters and on Peacock on September 2. Release date for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is set for November 11.
