In a new interview with Deadline, Marvel head Kevin Feige talked about how “Black Panther 2″ is proceeding without Boseman. “We’re not going to have a CG Chadwick and we’re not recasting T’Challa,” he said. “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. There’s also the task of honouring and respecting the ongoing learnings and teachings from Chad as well.” Marvel Studios EVP of Production, Victoria Alonso, previously confirmed that the studio will not use a digital double of Boseman in the upcoming sequel saying that there’s, “only one Chadwick and he’s not with us.” The sequel to “Black Panther” will be released July 8, 2022.
