Producer Marvel claims T’Challa will never be recast in the MCU


The tragic death of Chadwick Boseman last year was a blow, but the franchise he helped build will continue with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Although Marvel claimed that T’Challa would not be recast into the film, nor would they try to bring Boseman back digitally, it’s easy to imagine the studio taking the character back years.

While talking about the Podcast Wrestler Verses, Marvel Vice President of Development Nate Moore crushed any thoughts that T’Challa would be back without Chadwick Boseman.

I’m not hiding my bets, I’m honest enough: you won’t see T’Challa in the MCU 616 universe.

Nate Moore continued, “We couldn’t do it. I’ll say that when Chad died, it was a real conversation we had with Coogler about what we do. And it was a quick conversation; it hadn’t been weeks. It took a few minutes to figure out how to move this franchise forward without that character. Because I think we all hear a lot of T’Challa in the MCU on screen, not in the comics, it’s related to Chadwick’s performance, that’s what led to that role, both on and off screen I would say.“It could also be argued that Moore’s mention of Universe 616 means that a future appearance of a variant version of T’Challa is a possibility. Moore admitted that while it was very difficult for them to tell the story of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever without T’Challa, “at no time did we consider the recast.

when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is released, Nate Moore believes audiences will experience a level of catharsis, because Chadwick Boseman’s performance and the world of Wakanda are truly the same.

It was recently announced that production On Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had been paused. Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, was hospitalized after an accident with aerobatic equipment this summer which ended up being more serious than initially reported. Director Ryan Coogler has shot everything possible without her, but Wright is expected to have bounced back in time to resume filming early next year. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to go out in theaters on November 11, 2022.
