Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has revealed how he considered stepping away from the film industry for good after Chadwick Boseman’s death. Coogler, who previously helmed Rocky Balboa spin-off Creed and 2013 drama Fruitvale Station, worked with the late star on the 2018 Marvel superhero epic. Boseman, who portrayed the universally acclaimed titular hero, passed away in 2020 after a heartbreaking battle with colon cancer.
Whilst the film’s sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is now just months away from its theatrical release, Coogler disclosed that he struggled so much with Boseman’s loss he was unable to imagine getting behind the camera again. "I was at a point when I was like, ‘I’m walking away from this business,’" Coogler said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "I didn’t know if I could make another movie period, [let alone] another Black Panther movie, because it hurt a lot. I was like, ‘Man, how could I open myself up to feeling like this again?’"
