Black Panther Wakanda Forever Crew Member Teases An Extended Cut Via Instagram Post
Producer of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Nate Moore makes a hint about a director’s cut and provides further information on the movie’s deleted sequences. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, was released this year to mostly favorable reviews from both critics and fans. The kingdom of Wakanda mourns the passing of Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa while coping with a new enemy in the form of Tenoch Huerta’s Namor in the movie, which acts as the end to Phase 4 of the MCU. With a running time of 2 hours and 41 minutes, the sequel is Phase 4’s longest film ever and features several characters from the original Black Panther, notably Letitia Wright’s Shuri, Angela Bassett’s Ramonda, and Danai Gurira’s Okoye.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, No Way Home, and Avengers: Endgame are the only three MCU titles that have previously had extra footage released. The fact that Marvel Studios has produced more than thirty movies shows how uncommon this kind of treatment is.
The newest MCU movie’s Extended Edition has been hinted at by Aba Arthur, an actress who is listed on IMDB as a “Naval Engineer” in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Aba Arthur captioned a photo of herself with other cast and crew members, “Forever Wakandans… Behind the Scenes Pt. 3.” Shout out to my amazing stunt double, Phedra Syndelle, and the Jabari tribe! “When the extended cut of the movie is released, you may see our stunt work.”

Producer Nate Moore also said that, Many characters have fantastic sequences, but the movie just couldn’t manage them. Since the film is already rather long, we wanted to ensure that it felt as concentrated as possible while accomplishing as much as it does. However, there are some extremely cool deleted moments. I believe there is a spectrum.
Some scenes from the Director’s Cut weren’t moved forward. Some of them were subjected to extensive playtime and screening. In editorial, we have a reputation for experimenting a lot. By the way, Ryan is too. As a result, things come in and out. He said that some are more finished, while others are still in their rawest form.
Okoye appears in a highly intriguing deleted scene after she is let go from her position, according to producer Nate Moore. He stated, without a doubt, the scene between Okoye and Ayo after Okoye is fired is very intriguing. Again, I find that to be very entertaining to watch. It only slightly slowed down the movie’s pace. However, you get to see Okoye’s response to the new general and what she had planned to do prior to Namor’s actions and the Talocans’ arrival in Wakanda. Actually, it’s pretty cool.
There would be plenty they could do with an extended cut if they released it. One possibility is to further explore Namor and his people, especially in light of the fact that Marvel Studios has yet to give Namor his own project due to legal concerns with Universal Pictures.
Additionally, more of the movie might give fans more of Dominque Thorne’s amazing portrayal of Riri Williams in favor of her Disney+ series Iron-heart next year.
Given how Marvel has handled extended cuts in the past, Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director’s cut is doubtful to ever be made available, but MCU fans may eventually be able to see the movie’s deleted scenes in some form.
