It has also been confirmed that they will not recast T’Challa to preserve the legacy of Chadwick Boseman.’ There is only one Chadwick and he is not here’ lamented Marvel Studios executive Vice President Victoria Alonso.
“Our king has died in real life. Not just in stories, and we are taking a breather to figure out how to return to history. We also want and pay tribute to this unexpected, painful, terrible event that has befallen us.” Kevin Feige continued: “It’s possible to go deeper into the culture of Wakanda by introducing new characters and slants. This was, from the beginning, the next story’s central theme. There will be no CGI Chadwick, and T’Challa will not be recast.”
