“Jesus. A 4-year wait for ‘Black Panther 2.’ Chadwick (Boseman) was late 30s when he was cast as Black Panther,” griped Twitter user Jack Burton. “By the time (‘Black Panther 2’) comes out he’s gonna be on the later end of his 40s. Jeez. At this rate he’s gonna be 50 by the time (‘Black Panther 3’) comes out.”
Ian Banks succinctly tweeted, “I really have to wait basically 3 years for the next ‘Black Panther,’ I’m sick.”
The film, which also starred Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o, received seven Academy Award nominations — including Best Picture — and snagged three trophies for Best Original Score, Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.
It also claimed the top prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
