Commissioners announced the permit agreement between the City of Brunswick and the movie production company on Wednesday during a Board of Commissioners’ meeting. The park will be closed on Friday, Oct. 22 through Monday, Nov. 8.
Channel 2 Action News reported earlier this week that the release of the Black Panther sequel would be pushed back from July 2022 to November 2022.
The movie franchise lost a dear member of its family with the death of 95-year-old Dororthy Steel.
Steel played a tribe leader in the fictional land of Wakanda in the film, which was shot in metro Atlanta. Her role in “Black Panther” was her biggest, but she had a handful of credits in other films, including “Jumanji: The Next Level.”
“It was just amazing, it truly was,” Steel told Channel 2 of the experience in 2018. “If anyone would have told me I would be an actor, I would’ve said you got to be out of your mind.”
Steel was born in Detroit in 1926 and didn’t land her first acting role until she was 88 years old. “Black Panther” was her first appearance on the big screen.
She was in the middle of filming “Black Panther 2″ when she died, according to her publicist. The Marvel franchise flew her home to Detroit to spend her last moments with loved ones.
“This was going to be my last role,” Steel said, according to her publicist.
