Alex Livinalli, who plays Attuma in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, claimed that a fight scene in the movie took a very long time of four months to shoot.
Livinalli and executive producer Nate Moore were questioned about their role in bringing to life a bridge-based conflict. That particular scene, which took four months to shoot, was arguably the longest one in Wakanda Forever, according to Livinalli.
“But we trained for months, you know, me and Danai ” he added. “We were in and out just rehearsing and rehearsing and rehearsing. And for me, it was such a beautiful moment to see from when we started and seeing the progress of how our dance came together.” Livinalli concluded by saying that getting know Gurira as a person helped create a bond between the two of them.
Director and co-writer Ryan Coogler discussed why he decided on the Emperor of the Deep as Wakanda Forever’s antagonist rather than the enduring antagonist Doctor Doom. Pointing out that there have been numerous other film adaptations of the Lord of Latveria.
“So I think that’s what excited me the most about Namor, was that there hadn’t been any representations,” he said. “You didn’t have any baggage of any other actors or any other performances or any other movies, it was just publishing for Namor. I think Doom is a little different. But man, what an incredible character.”
Black Panther 2 arrives in theaters on Nov. 11.
