The untimely loss of phenomenal actor Chadwick Boseman, has left a lot of things unplanned including the black panther 2.
First, there will be a Black Panther 2 in some form opening either May 6,2022 or sometime later. Black Panther earned $700 million in North America and $1.346 billion worldwide, bigger than (sans inflation) any solo superhero movie ever.
And while its success showed that comic book/superhero fans and general audiences had no issue with a Black superhero or a story existing in a fantastical African country, it also obviously appealed to Black audiences who had little interest or knowledge in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The “good” news is that both options, letting someone else become the ruler of Wakanda or recasting T’Challa, are both reasonable choices which probably won’t negatively impact Black Panther 2’s commercial or artistic reception.
So the question is whether to recast T’Challa or acknowledge reality by writing him out.
