Daniel Kaluuya will not be returning in Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever. Formerly, it was assumed that Kaluuya would return to the duty of W’Kabi, as he played in the very first Black Panther movie. Other stars that will supposedly go back to the second Black Panther film consist of Leticia Wright, Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong’ o, as well as Danai Gurira.
Now, a tweet from Rotten Tomatoes honors editor Jacqueline Coley reveals that Kaluuya will not be returning as W’Kabi in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Coley revealed that Kaluuya revealed that he would certainly not be going back to Black Panther in an interview. Kaluuya cited timetable conflicts with Nope as the factor that he can not play W’Kabi in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Have a look at the tweet listed below:
It's official he's not in #BlackPantherWakandaForever

Kaluuya’s option to seek Nope instead than the Black Panther follow up makes a lot of sense. It’ll be interesting to see how or if Black Panther: Wakanda Forever addresses W’Kabi’s absence when it hits cinemas this autumn.
