Coogler, 34, is working on the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 film and spoke about what it was like continuing without Boseman on the podcast Jemele Hill is Unbothered. Boseman died last August at age 43 after a private four-year battle with colon cancer.
“I’m still currently going through it,” Coogler said of mourning his friend. “One thing that I’ve learned in my short or long time on this Earth is that it’s very difficult to have perspective on something while you’re going through it. This is one of the more profound things that I’ve gone through in my life, having to be a part of keeping this project going without this particular person who is like the glue who held it together.”
