Black Panther editor Michael Shawver has revealed two scenes cut from the film that added depth to character relationships – but has announced they’ll make it into DVD extras.
In an interview with The Wrap, Shawver discussed a scene that was, “hands down the most painful
to cut,” featuring a discussion between Wakanda’s General Okoye and Ambassador W’kabi, played by Danai Gurira and Daniel Kaluuya respectively. In the scene, Killmonger has already taken over Wakanda and the two characters are talking about what happens next.
“Those are two powerhouse actors and it was an incredible scene with so many layers to it,” said Shawver, “boyfriend and girlfriend, it was general and her advisor, all those things.” The scene was cut for pacing reasons with Shawver noting that his priority is to, “have your finger on the pulse of what the audience is feeling,” and that this scene was slowing down the movie’s penultimate act.
