Obviously thinking of "Black Panther 2" is a hard subject. The tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman was not only sad but also unexpected. He was amazing as Black Panther and was also prepping for the filming of the sequel!
A lot of people did wonder what will happen with the Black Panther franchise, would it go on? Would they replace Chadwick? What would happen?
According toWe Got This Covered,“the plan at the moment is for T’Challa to be written out of Black Panther 2 before the story starts as he’ll apparently die off-screen. Shuri will then assume the mantle and become Wakanda’s new protector on a permanent basis.”
No other details have been given at this time and the plan isn’t set in stone but according to the outlet,“Disney will definitely pay respect to an actor that inspired a generation and convinced them that they could be heroes.”
Having Letitia Wright was something a lot of fans wanted to see moving forward AND in the comic books Shuri eventually takes over as Black Panther so it seems very fitting!
