Chadwick Boseman’s Role As T’Challa In ‘Black Panther’ Will Not Be Recast In The Sequel

Chadwick Boseman’s role of T’Challa in “Black Panther” will not be recast in honor of the cator’s legacy. Boseman died unexpectedly of cancer earlier this year sending shockwave of grief through Hollywood and his fanbase.

Disney is honoring Chadwick Boseman by not recasting his role in the sequel to “Black Panther.”

According to NBC News, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told investors that the company had no plans to recast Boseman’s role in the superhero sequel. There has been speculation about what Disney would do about the historic role. At one point, executive producer Victoria Alonso had to deny rumors that a virtual double was being used to fill Boseman’s role on the movie.

“I wanted to acknowledge the devastating loss of a dear friend and member of the Marvel Studios family. Chadwick Boseman was an immensely talented actor and an inspirational individual who affected all of our lives professionally and personally. His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends iteration of the character in any other medium from Marvel’s past,” Feige said, according to reports. “It’s for that reason that we will not recast the character. However, to honor the legacy that Chad helped us build through his portrayal of the king of Wakanda, we want to continue to explore the world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film. Writer/director Ryan Coogler is hard at work on the sequel now, and we’ll bring the film to you in theaters July 8, 2022.”

The MTV Movie and TV Awards: Greatest of all Time honored Boseman with the “Hero for the Ages” award.

“The second you first saw him onscreen or had the opportunity to meet him in person, his energy and intensity was undeniable,” Robert Downey Jr. said as he and Don Cheadle gave tribute to Boseman. “There was something different and special about Chadwick Boseman. Mr. Boseman truly embodied what it meant to be a superhero. His impact as a groundbreaking leading man, as an icon on screen… it won’t be quantified by the box office records he broke but by the legion of fans who will celebrate him for many years to come.”

Boseman, who died of cancer at age 43, was not just a hero on screen.

Boseman’s death added a devastating loss in the middle of a deadly pandemic. The death was a surprise to many as Boseman kept his cancer a secret. Fans and co-stars paid tributes to Boseman because of the importance he made in Hollywood representation.

The sweet honor to the late actor was received with love and respect from fans.

Continue to rest in peace, sweet Chadwick.

Lupita Nyong’o Penned A Heartbreaking Tribute To Black King Chadwick Boseman

Eleven days have passed since “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman’s family announced he’d lost a years-long battle to colon cancer.

In that time, many of Boseman’s fans, family, and co-workers have spoken up to pay tribute to his talent and life. Still, Lupita Nyong’o, who co-starred alongside Boseman in “Black Panther” as his character’s love interest Nakia, has remained quite.

Until recently.

For the first time since his death, Nyong’o spoke out about Boseman’s death on Instagram.

“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning,” she wrote. “I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess a immortal energy, that seem like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be – here! … that seem ageless… Chadwick was one of those people.”

Nyong’o shared that while she didn’t know Chadwick for long she will remember him forever.

“Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time, and somehow also managed to take his time,” she continued. “I didn’t know him for long, but he had a profound effect on me in the time that I did. When we came together to make Black Panther, I remember being struck by his quiet, powerful presence. He had no airs about him, but there was a higher frequency that he seemed to operate from. You got the sense that he was fully present and also somehow fully aware of things in the distant future. As a result, I noticed that Chadwick never seemed rushed! He commanded his time with ease.”

She went onto describe Boseman as a hard worker who showed up to every shoot “with his game face on.”

“He was absorbent. Agile. He set the bar high by working with a generosity of spirit, creating an ego-free environment by sheer example, and he always had a warm gaze and a strong embrace to share. His large hands would descend on my shoulders and give them a squeeze that relieved me of the tensions I did not realize I was holding. Chadwick’s hands were strong enough to carry the weight of the film and free enough to clasp mine when I needed it.”Ultimately, Nyong’o wrote, “it seems that it was life that gave up on Chadwick long before Chadwick gave up on life.”

The Oscar-winning actress appeared alongside Boseman in the Oscar-nominated film “Black Panther” which saw her play the role of Nakia, a War Dog for the nation of Wakanda and love interest of Boseman’s character T’Challa. While Boseman had long been an actor before his appearance in the Marvel Studios film, the role shot him to global fame.
