Marvel Won’t Replace Chadwick Boseman In “Black Panther2”

In both the new series and the second film, the writers will not look for a replacement for Boseman, as announced a few months ago by the director of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige.

The representation that Boseman made of Black Panther is iconic and transcends any iteration of the character in Marvel’s past for that reason we will not repeat the character, he said during an investor presentation of the business group The Walt Disney Company.

Feige added that to honor his legacy they will continue to explore the world of Wakanda and all the characters that appeared in the first film.

In this way, the doubts about Black Panther2, scheduled for summer 2022 with a plot that will continue the 2018 film, which raised 1.347 million dollars and became an emblem of pride for the black community, were cleared.

Boseman passed away at age 43 from colon cancer that was secretly treated during the filming of several films in recent years, something that added even more shock among his Hollywood peers.
