There will be plenty of superheroes for the audience to enjoy as new stars will be portraying some of the well-known characters in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. What would happen to King T'Challa—the character Chadwick Boseman played in the first film—has fans wondering.

Black Panther was transformed into a superhero in the first episode; courtesy: Chadwick Boseman. He received accolades for his outstanding performance in the movie. Aside from the fact that he helped make the movie popular, what he did heroically as an individual was to portray people of colour as being on an even playing field with the rest of humanity.


Chadwick Boseman passed away from colon cancer on August 28 2020 which startled his fans. He was only 43 years old. Boseman was well-known even before he was cast as King T'Challa in the wildly successful Black Panther movie. Further, he was seen in four Marvel movies—Captain America: Civil War (2016), Back Panther (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2017), and Avengers: Endgame (2018).

Boseman's admirers find it impossible to picture anyone else filling the void left by him. Nobody else could pronounce "Wakanda Forever" in the manner that Boseman did, crossing his hands in front of his chest. The movie's creators have equally tried to consider how they would compensate for his absence.

The filmmakers had made the decision not to utilise visual effects or CGI to bring Chadwick back. He will always be the King of the Black Panther team. The other characters in the film, which was created as a follow-up to T'Challa's passing, collaborate in honour of him to ensure that Wakanda endures both during and after his death. According to rumours, King T'Challa passes away from a disease, and the narrative continues after his passing.

King T'Challa would not be returning, according to Black Panther franchise director Ryan Coogler and Vice President of development Nat Moore.

While T'Challa wouldn't have direct involvement in the Marvel Comics Universe, he would still be mentioned by other superheroes. The choice to not have another actor play King T'Challa, in Coogler's opinion, was the hardest he had to make in his career. Because T'Challa was so crucial to the Marvel Comics Universe, it was clear that Boseman loved what he did and that no one else could replace him.

But as they say, the show must go on, and Black Panther 2 will be released in theatres on November 11. The movie is expected to pay respect to Chadwick Boseman and expand on the amazing world he helped create.

Black Panther 2, which Ryan Coogler is directing and co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole, will transport viewers back to Wakanda. The sequel promises to be quite the watch and is already estimated to gross more than $175 million at the box office. It has the return of well-known actors as well as the inclusion of some interesting new ones.

Before being set for its current November release date, the movie's initial release dates were May 6, 2022, and then July 8, 2022. The movie had to be redone as a result of Chadwick Boseman's tragic and unexpected death, which caused a delay in production. On October 26, 2022, the film had its global premiere at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.
