Here's How 'Black Panther 2' Will Handle the Passing of Chadwick Boseman

Don’t expect to see Chadwick Boseman making a virtual appearance in the Black Panther sequel.

The late star, who sadly passed away in August, will not be represented in CGI form in the upcoming Black Panther 2, an executive producer told Argentinian newspaper Clarin, via The Wrap.

“No. There’s only one Chadwick and he’s not with us,” said Victoria Alonso, Marvel Studios exec.

“Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really.”

That said, she confirmed they hope to pay tribute to his legacy.

“Because Chadwick was not only a wonder of a human being every day for the five years that we spent together, but it also seems to me that as a character what he did elevated us as a company and has left his moment in history. I know that sometimes two months go by or three months go by in production and you say, ‘Well, it was a long time.’ But it is not a long time. We have to think carefully about what we are going to do and how and think about how we are going to honor the franchise.”

Filming for the sequel had not yet started before Chadwick‘s death. One of his co-stars was recently asked about filming the movie without him.
