Black Panther 2 Will Not Feature CGI Chadwick Boseman



Marvel Boss, Kevin Feige confirmed the upcoming sequel will not feature CGI footage of the late Chadwick Boseman - who died of cancer last August (20) - nor would his role as T'Challa be recast, but stressed that the focus on the film was never intended to be on his character.


"So much of the comics and that first movie in the world of Wakanda," he told Deadline. "Wakanda is a place to further explore with characters and different subcultures. This was always and initially the primary focus of the next story. We're not going to have a CG Chadwick and we're not recasting T'Challa."

"Ryan Coogler is working very hard right now on the script with all the respect and love and genius that he has, which gives us great solace, so it was always about furthering the mythology and the inspiration of Wakanda," he continued. "There's also the task of honoring and respecting the ongoing learnings and teachings from Chad as well."


The sequel will see the return of familiar faces like Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, and Letitia Wright.


Other details of the project are still scarce, but words ran rampant on the internet that Marvel considered passing the torch to M'Baku who's played by Winston Duke in the first film. The warrior protested T'Challa being the new king in the 2018 movie.
