Marvel: No CGI Chadwick Boseman Or Recasting T’Challa For Black Panther 2!
Well, a lot of people were surprised to learn that at the start of production on Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel Black Panther 2 was only pushed back by four months to July of this year.
Before Chadwick Boseman’s untimely passing, he was just weeks away from beginning his training to get back into superhero shape. Unfortunately, he lost his four-year battle against colon cancer. Read on for the latest about Black Panther 2 and no CGI Chadwick Boseman…
CelebnMovies247.com reports that nobody would have begrudged the studio in the slightest had the project been pulled from the calendar and delayed indefinitely.
But that is not what is happening, oh no, the second trip to Wakanda is going to be a hugely emotional and incredibly powerful experience for the actor’s legion of fans. Since Black Panther 2 has to deal with all of those aforementioned expectations while also carrying on the personal and professional legacy that Boseman left behind as T’Challa, according to ComicBook.com.
What is Next for Black Panther 2:
Kevin Feige revealed that Black Panther 2 is set to dive even deeper into the history and mythology of the isolated nation, while also confirming that despite recent reports, they won’t be using a “CG Chadwick.”
So much of the comics and that first movie is the world of Wakanda. Wakanda is a place to further explore with characters and different subcultures. This was always and initially the primary focus of the next story. We’re not going to have a CG Chadwick and we’re not recasting T’Challa. Ryan Coogler is working very hard right now on the script with all the respect and love and genius that he has, which gives us great solace, so it was always about furthering the mythology and the inspiration of Wakanda. There’s also the task of honoring and respecting the ongoing learnings and teachings from Chad as well.
Fans are expecting Letitia Wright’s Shuri to step up and inherit the mantle in Black Panther 2, but their excitement may have been tempered a little given the recent controversies surrounding the actress. Letitia has been broken-hearted since his passing.
We will see how this plays out and how Marvel will tackle the upcoming film
