Un mexicano más en el Universo Marvel: Tenoch Huerta se suma a Black Panther

Después de no tener un solo estreno de Marvel este año, Marvel se prepara para tener un 2021 en grande, al comenzar la producción del show de Ms. Marvel para Disney +, y retomar la producción de Black Panther 2 , tras la trágica muerte de Chadwick Boseman . Y dentro de esta novedad, hay una noticia que nos alegra como mexicanos: Tenoch Huerta se une al elenco como uno de los antagonistas de la cinta.

Aún no se sabe el papel exacto que interpretará el actor de Narcos: México. Sin embargo, también se dio a conocer que Laetitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke y Angela Bassett regresan a la franquicia. Aún no se revela cómo va a avanzar la historia sin Boseman, pero los ejecutivos de la franquicia han descartado usar algún truco digital para incorporarlo.

Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Sequel Shoot to Begin in July

Tenoch Huerta, star of Netflix’s ‘Narcos: Mexi­co,’ is joining the cast of the untitled film from Ryan Coogler, sources tell THR.

Marvel Studio’s plans for the sequel to Black Panther are starting to come into focus.

The sequel was sidelined after the sudden and unexpected death of star Chadwick Boseman and a planned March 2021 production start was waylaid as filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Marvel tried to navigate grief and the need to move forward. It was the nadir of a year that saw no Marvel movies released for the first time since 2009.

However, even as the continuing novel coronavirus upends theatrical distribution and plays havoc with its Phase 4 rollout, Marvel is about to enter 2021 the busiest it has ever been as it juggles not only multiple movies but a major push into TV.

Multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Marvel is now readying Black Panther 2 for a shoot that will start in Atlanta in July and last for upwards of six months.

Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, who was one of the stars of Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico, is in talks to play one of the antagonists, sources tell THR. Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett are expected to return for the new feature, with some saying Wright’s character Shuri may take on a more prominent role.

Marvel, which had no comment on this story, has not revealed its plans on how it plans to proceed without Boseman, although it has indicated that it will not use CGI to include the late star in the film.

While Black Panther 2 is receiving special attention, it is the many Disney+ series that are under heavy scrutiny from Kevin Feige and his executives.
