The untimely death of Marvel star Chadwick Boseman left millions of people heartbroken and this undoubtedly included ‘Black Panther’ director Ryan Coogler. In a recent interview, the director admitted that he considered quitting filmmaking following Boseman’s passing.

“I was at a point when I was like, ‘I’m walking away from this business,’” Ryan Coogler told EW. “I didn’t know if I could make another movie period, let alone another Black Panther movie. I was like, ‘Man, how could I open myself up to feeling like this again?’” However, after looking back on his conversations with the late actor, Coogler decided that it made more sense to keep going.

"There's that idea of grief and intense emotion feeling like it comes in waves. Sometimes a wave can take you away where you lose control of it. You think you’re in control, but the water can always remind you that you’re not,” the Black Panther director added. Chadwick Boseman rose to fame for playing the role of T’Challa aka Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) from 2016 to 2019. The actor passed away in August 2020 after battling colon cancer for four years.
