CGI Will Not Be Used To Bring Chadwick Boseman Back For ‘Black Panther 2’
Head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige confirmed during a press junket this week that CGI Footage of Chadwick Boseman will not be used for Black Panther II. The actor passed away this past August from colon cancer.
During an interview to promote WandaVision which makes it’s debut on Disney+ on Friday, Feige talked to Deadline, about his decision not to recast the role of T’Challa for Black Panther 2. He also confirmed that the franchise will explore more with the characters and the world of Wakanda.
Feige said in the interview, “So much of the comics and that first movie is the world of Wakanda.” Feige continued “Wakanda is a place to further explore with characters and different subcultures. This was always and initially the primary focus of the next story.”
The studio head added, “We’re not going to have a CG Chadwick and we’re not recasting T’Challa. 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,” Fiege added. “There’s also the task of honoring and respecting the ongoing learnings and teachings from Chad as well.”
Though Marvel hasn’t revealed too much about the upcoming sequel, we do know that it is currently slated for release on July 8, 2022 and that Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, and Angela Bassett will return to the film.
