Chadwick Boseman, who plays the T’Challa in Black Panther died on August 28, 2020, after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He has been secretly battling colon cancer since 2016. Boseman plays one of the major roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe but his act still breaches other interesting movies like ‘Message From the King’ and ‘21 Bridges.’ He was one of the most favorite among, and now he is gone — his place we forever remain.
Boseman was supposed to be T’Challa in Black Panther 2, but his death cut him short, and now the movie is on hold — battling on who will continue acting as T’Challa in the movie.
Fans have suggested that Boseman should be recreated in Black Panther 2, but it seems that’s not going to happen. Because, Marvel Studios’ Executive Vice President, Victoria Alonso, says there are no plans to digitally recreate Chadwick Boseman for Black Panther 2.
The plan was that production for the Black Panther 2 was supposed to kick off in March 2021, but it all went wrong when will hear that he has passed away. And the production team doesn’t know how to continue or even begin production for the Black Panther 2 without Boseman.
In a statement when speaking with ScreenRant, Marvel Studios Executive Vice President, Victoria Alonso said that there is no plan to recreate Boseman’s character in Black Panther 2 using CGI. “No. There’s only one Chadwick, and he’s not with us. Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible.” Victoria Alonso and all Boseman Mate and crew are taking a little time to see how they honor Boseman’s passing.
Since there are no plans to recreate a double Boseman in Black Panther 2, and they haven’t yet decided who we play T’Challa, then the product might not likely take place in March 2021. The production will only begin if they found another character that will play — or follow the comics. But they might even not go ahead with the production for Black Panther 2 — just saying to keep everyone cool with it and just start with another movie.
