As we all know terrible and tragic news broke out in the world that Chadwick Boseman had died at the age of 43. Not only the fans but the whole Entertainment Industry mourned for this death. Amidst his death, Black Panther 2 was already announced in October 2018 but got delayed due to obvious reasons.
But one can not stop working no matter what. So Black Panther 2 is resuming back for filming without our legend king of Wakanda. According to reports, Marvel Studios won’t be replacing T’Challa’s character with anyone new now.
Victoria Alonso, Marvels Studio Executive said, “Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really.”

Writer and Director Ryan Coogler is still very upset with the death of Boseman. He said, “I’m still currently going through it, one thing that I’ve learned in my short or long time on this Earth is that it’s very difficult to have perspective on something while you’re going through it.”
He expressed his feelings by saying that he has never worked on the same project where he could not see the “person who is like the glue who held it together.”
With the main lead gone, fans are speculating who will play the role of Black Panther. Going according to the comics it was Shuri who will take the role of Black Panther but for the movie, this is not the case. Letitia Wright (Shuri) even denied the rumors saying, “not something I even want to think about.”
