Marvel Says They Will Not Recast Chadwick Boseman’s ‘Black Panther’ Character Marvel’s VP of Development has opened up about Chadwick Boseman’s character in the forthcoming MCU movies.  He said, “You will not see T’Challa in the MCU 616 universe. We couldn’t do it.” He also said, “I will say, when Chad passed, it was a real conversation we had with Coogler about ‘what do we do?’ And it was a fast conversation. It wasn’t weeks, it was minutes of, ‘We have to figure out how to move this franchise on without that character.'” He also talked about what Chadwick brought to the character.  He said, “Because I think we all feel so much of T’Challa in the MCU on the screen, not the comics, is tied to Chadwick’s performance, is what he brought to that role, on and off-screen, I would argue. So as hard as it is narratively to figure out what to do because that’s a big hole, at no point did we consider recasting him.”   How do you think they will do Black Panther 2 without Chadwick?
