I published a new piece at The dropout today. With the announcement earlier this week that Marvel Studios would not replace Chadwick Boseman Black panther 2I looked at why that was the right call.
The original Black Panther was a one-off phenomenon, and Chadwick Boseman was a big part of it. The T’Challa part could be recast at some point in an alternate universe or on a reboot, but Boseman played the final version within the MCU. Replacing him would be tantamount to trying to replace Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans, both of whom were allowed to retire their characters at the end of the day Avengers: Endgame. Boseman deserves at least that respect.
