Boseman starred in the 2018 blockbuster Black Panther, one of Marvel’s most successful movies ever, though he would die just two years later from colon cancer, which he was diagnosed with in 2016 but was never disclosed publicly.

Duke, 35, opened up about the loss of Boseman and how it was felt daily on the set of the sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, in theaters November 11.

Boseman played T’Challa, who is thrust into the throne of his homeland Wakanda when his father T’Chaka dies.

Duke played M’Baku in the first movie and returns for the sequel, revealing on the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast how they dealt with his loss.

‘That is something that we have to wrestle with daily on set because there was a gaping hole when it came to his presence,’ Duke said.

‘You felt it daily. You felt him not being there,’ Duke added, while reminiscing about his time with Boseman on the Black Panther set.

‘He was a very gentle presence of strength, power, and scope. You knew he was there, but he didn’t have to say anything,’ Duke said.

‘He wasn’t walking around with a big ego… You don’t realize the impact when they’re there,’ Duke continued.

‘But when they’re not, it’s apparent. You feel it intrinsically and that was the experience on set daily for a year,’ he added.

Director Ryan Coogler added a similar sentiment in a recent interview, stating, ‘I think this film has the fog of loss over it, and anamorphic lenses warp the image a little bit.’

‘Sometimes when you go through profound loss, it can warp how you look at the world,’ the director added.

‘What we were after was just making it feel tactile, even though it felt like a dream,’ Coogler continued.

‘The film should feel like a really wild dream that you would have, but where everything felt like it was really there’ he added.
