Black Panther 2 won't recast Chadwick Boseman confirms Disney


Several months after his death, the passing of Chadwick Boseman still feels raw. And it's now been confirmed by Disney that Boseman won't be recast in Marvel's Black Panther 2.

The nature of the T'Challa role has been at the forefront of fans' minds since Boseman died. The announcement came via Disney on Twitter, which also revealed a surplus of additional Marvel news.



Marvel did also recently confirm that there were no plans to use CGI to recreate Boseman for Black Panther 2. Boseman's co-star Letitia Wright, who played T'Challa's sister in Black Panther, stated that filming a sequel without Boseman just felt strange because she and her other Black Panther co-stars were still mourning him.

Speculation had been rife that Letitia Wright would take on the mantle. Her character Shuri emerged in the first Black Panther movie as a valuable ally to her brother, T'Challa. It remains to be seen how Disney and Marvel Studios will navigate Boseman's absence.

However they move forward, Black Panther 2 will be a critical chapter in the MCU Marvel Phase 5. Stay tuned to the blog and on Twitter @Regal for more details.
