Indeed, Chadwick Boseman had hidden his illness from many in the film industry. He’d even started training to return to Black Panther 2, which was due to start filming in March for a May 2022 release. So after the tragic announcement of his death on August 28th, Marvel had to review its plans.
Rumor has it that the studio is considering bringing Shuri, T’Challa’s sister, to the fore as Wakanda’s protector, and the producers are considering killing the hero off-camera.
However, according to information from Daniel Ritchman, who is always very knowledgeable about film projects, fans would be disappointed if the studio considered this option of not letting the character die on screen. Among the ideas discussed, Marvel was able to digitally recreate Chadwick Boseman, as did Carrie Fisher in Star Wars.
Obviously this is just a track and nothing is official yet. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed so that the result is obtained correctly if it is the chosen solution. In addition, the actor’s family would also have to agree. But if Boseman is digitally recreated like Carrie Fisher, it could bring us an emotionally strong moment in Black Panther 2.
What do you think of this planned track until we know what the studio is going to do?
