Speaking about “previous iterations” of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever script, Cole says: “We were really more child-centric in the narrative, and his son was a part of that. Obviously that changed, but We wanted him to be present in the film somehow. It was even less.

“There was a conversation about when do we reveal this information to the audience and what is the best version of it? Not just emotionally, but just narratively for the story and how it affects the characters in the story when they get this information, and so on. We played a little bit, but they were never a big presence after Chad passed.
