Furthermore, it was also reported that Winston Duke will once again take up his role as M'Baku in the upcoming movie "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," which is presently being filmed in Atlanta.
Winston Duke previously reprised his role as M'Baku in "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame" and fans will once again see his character in the upcoming "Black Panther" sequel.
Notably, no details have also been released regarding the plot of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," as prior to filming, Chadwick Boseman, who plays Black Panther aka T'Challa, passed away last year.
