Additionally, Chadwick Boseman, who played the role of Wakanda’s King T’Challa, recently passed away in August 2020. There will be no replacement for his role and he will not be added digitally in Black Panther 2. This was confirmed by Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore who spoke about the absence of Chadwick and Black Panther 2. He said:
“When [Chadwick] passed, there was a real conversation we had with [director Ryan] Coogler about what do we do, and it was a fast conversation. It wasn’t weeks, it was minutes of discussing how we move this franchise forward without this character because I think we all feel so much of T’Challa on the screen is tied to Chadwick Boseman.”
Black Panther 2 Filming
Filming for Black Panther 2 has been ongoing for a while. However, it has had several delays due to the pandemic. Filming for Black Panther 2 had to be also delayed as Letitia Wright who plays the role of Shuri had an on-set injury. Now, it is predicted that filming will end, and post-production for Black panther 2 will begin soon.
Happy birthday to our forever Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman. 💜
He would’ve been 45 today.
His legacy will forever live on and he will always be remembered as one of the greatest superheroes of our time. 💜 pic.twitter.com/jhUJF0pPT0
