Marvel Exec Says Chadwick Boseman’s ‘Black Panther’ Role Will Not be Recast in MCU

Marvel has confirmed that Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther character T’Challa will not be seen again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel’s VP of Development, Nate More, revealed this recently during a chat on the Ringer-Verse podcast, during which he said that the studio has no plans of recasting Boseman’s character in any future MCU projects.

“You will not see T’Challa in the MCU 616 universe,” Moore said. “We couldn’t do it. I will say, when Chad passed, it was a real conversation we had with Coogler about ‘what do we do?’ And it was a fast conversation. It wasn’t weeks, it was minutes of, ‘We have to figure out how to move this franchise on without that character.’”

Moore continued, “Because I think we all feel so much of T’Challa in the MCU on the screen, not the comics, is tied to Chadwick’s performance, is what he brought to that role, on and off screen, I would argue. So as hard as it is narratively to figure out what to do because that’s a big hole, at no point did we consider recasting him. So the challenge for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is telling a story without T’Challa.”

MCU VP of Development Nate Moore puts to rest any discussion about recasting the character of T’challa as Black Panther. Says he talked with Ryan Coogler about it, and “we just couldn’t do it” more on @RingerVerse. T’challa is gone guys you agree or no? pic.twitter.com/MYoWKyqlmF
