Chadwick Boseman who passed away yesterday after losing a battle with colon cancer was signed on to star in a sequel to Black Panther before his tragic death and fans are wondering if the movie will still happen. While the movie already has a release date of May 6, 2022, production had not yet begun on the movie and it’s currently unclear what will happen with the movie.

 

American film director Ryan Coogler is confirmed to write and direct the sequel to the blockbuster smash hit. Following Boseman’s death, the sequel is no longer featured on Chadwick‘s IMDb page in the section for his upcoming roles. 

 

There’s still a chance that we’ll get to see Chadwick as T’Challa one last time though as he was set to appear in the Disney+ animated series Marvel’s What If. The upcoming series, set to debut in 2021, explores what might have happened if certain moments in Marvel history ended in a different way. Nearly all of the stars from the MCU will appear in the series, but it’s unknown if Chadwick already recorded his voiceover work or not.

 

Marvel has recast roles in the MCU in the past, but fans are already campaigning for the studio to not recast T’Challa. Some previous examples of recasting include Mark Ruffalo taking over for Edward Norton as Hulk and Don Cheadle stepping in as War Machine for Terrence Howard.

I think the loss of Boseman is amazingly painful. As has been said countless times, he truly displayed amazing composure, warmth, compassion, and grace in everything he associated himself with. While we are definitely all in our feelings about this, I think the Black Panther should be recast. I definitely think release dates should be shuffled to allow for additional time to pass, but the character of not just Black Panther, but T'Challa is extremely important to the Marvel Universe. Boseman knew this. This is why he worked so hard to participate in such a significant movie despite his health. He knew what was happenning was bigger than just him. I would say that he was well-aware of what needed to be and that it must continue. Tastefully, of course. As others have stated, John David Washington would be an amazing choice and amazingly poetic seeing as how Denzel Washington paid for Boseman's tuition to attend the British American Drama Academy. The upcoming "Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" along with all the time-shifting/jumping allow for a reasonable way to explain a change in look and feel to T'Challa.
