Marvel Announces Chadwick Boseman Will Not Be Replaced In “Black Panther 2”

Marvel will continue the Black Panther character’s legacy but will not recast someone new to play the iconic role.

According to CNN, the studio announced that it will not recast the role that was played by Chadwick Boseman.

“(Boseman’s) portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends any iteration of the character in any other medium from Marvel’s past, and it’s for that reason, that we will not react the character,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed during his presentation at Disney Investor Day.

The next installment will instead focus on exploring “the world of Wakanda and all the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film,” Feige said.

“Black Panther” became a blockbuster making more than $1 billion globally in less than a month when released in 2018. The highly anticipated sequel is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022, and will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler.
