Anthony Mackie believes that having Chadwick Boseman reprise the role of Black Panther would be a mistake T’Challa first appeared in Captain America: Civil War in 2016. In the year 2018, Black Panther was highly popular in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because of his own solo film. Viewers and critics alike loved Black Panther, making it the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for an Oscar. Boseman continued to appear in the Infinity War and the Endgame. Sadly, he starred in his final appearance in a Marvel film that died due to his cancer in August of 2020.
Since the actor’s death, a lot of attention has been placed on his importance to the legacy of the character. Even though Black Panther 2 is scheduled for release in 2022, president Kevin Feige has stated that Chadwick Boseman won’t be recast as T’Chaka. the film (and presumably future films in the franchise) will pay tribute to the actor while diving into the vibrant and interesting characters and world of Wakanda. Returning director Ryan Coogler commented, “Naturally, it has its own set of challenges, as this will be the most challenging project I’ve ever undertaken in my career.”
Jemele Hill, who stars in the series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” appeared on the Unbothered podcast discussing their relationship. Mackie actually answered, “Hell, no.” when asked if he wanted his character from the original Black Panther returned.
No, you can’t recast it. I mean, he did that role in a way it’ll never be done again. And I would hate for an actor to have to pick up the baton that he left behind because there’s no question he was a dynamic figure and an amazing actor. And just looking at the reaction to Black Panther, there’s nobody that could bring the grace to that role that he did. So I wouldn’t want to see Anthony Mackie as Black Panther; that would be awful.Anthony Mackie
There is no doubt: respecting Black Panther at his current state would be appropriate. It’s heartening to know that Marvel agrees with that. Additionally, Mackie reminds us how well he was suited for the role. Even though T’Challa was the King of Wakanda, he provided warmth and a bit of comic relief. It’s very difficult to imagine another actor portraying the role as he did because Boseman executed it so perfectly.
instead of recasting Boseman as Black Panther, it’s simple to envision his sister Shuri assuming a prominent role Even if she hadn’t featured in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “War,” Letitia Wright was quite noticeable in the otherworldly in “Avengers: Endgame.” Shuri picking up the mantle of her brother and/Black Panther might be a fitting way to remember Boseman For the time being, there is little known about the story for Black Panther 2.
