Chadwick Boseman Recorded Episodes for Upcoming Disney+ “What If…” show!
Some interesting and moving news has just emerged from Marvel Studios. Kevin Feige just confirmed that Chadwick Boseman who played Black Panther and passed away in August recorded “numerous episodes” of a new project titled What If…? That is heading to Disney+ and is inspired by the Marvel comic book.
As ComicBook.com informs us, the series will be narrated by The Watcher (a cosmic observer) voiced by Jeffrey Wright. Multiple Marvel characters will return to voice their characters for the show including Chadwick Boseman.
Other actors returning to reprise their roles includes Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier).
Feige said of the project, “There are all sorts of stories we couldn’t explore through live-action.” which imagines what happens if it’s T’Challa (Boseman) of Wakanda who becomes the legendary outlaw Star-Lord. Feige confirmed that Boseman did participate in the project saying, “In hindsight, it’s very moving.”
During The Walt Disney Company’s Investor’s Day last week, Feige confirmed that Marvel Studios WOULD NOT be recasting the role of Boseman’s King T’Challa in Black Panther II. The sequel is expected to explore the world of Wakanda and is slated to come out the Summer of 2022.
Boseman passed away in August after a four-year battle with colon cancer that he managed to keep private. The late actor is currently receiving critical acclaim for his turn as trumpeter Levee Green in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The project marks Boseman’s final on-screen performance.
Ashley Bradley head writer of What If…? sad the project is about “taking two universes, two to three movies, kind of twisting them in new ways.” One example given was one where Star-Lord T’Challa encounters Howard the Duck. The show is slated to debut on Disney+ next Summer.
“With Star-Lord T’Challa obviously, we want to know how T’Challa ended up in other planets? What’s the story there? It’s super exciting to work on because again, it’s seeing these characters and seeing the combination of character interactions,” Bradley said. “Seeing the Avengers hang out together and more recently Endgame gave us the fun of seeing something like Ant-Man hanging out with the Hulk. What If…? is taking it a step further.”
Other Marvel Studios stars lending their voices to What If…? include Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury).
