As we all know about the sudden demise of legendary actor Chadwick Boseman, who suffered from stomach cancer and died at the age of 42. After that, the Marvel Universe has decided to replace him with Letitia Wright as Shuri.
Who can replace Chadwick Boseman in Black Panther 2?
Chadwick Boseman, who successfully portrayed the character of Black Panther in the Marvel Universe, passed away quietly with his family on August 28, 2020.
He has been suffering from colon cancer for a very long time, but chose to remain silent about it.
The Marvel fans from all over the world and even many officials in the franchise does not know about his deadly disease. He was also approached several times by Disney to sign a three-year movie contract. But he reportedly turned them down.
Now it is guessed that the reason why Chadwick keeps on rejecting Disney’s 3 Year movie deal is his cancer.
Will Letitia Wright replace Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther in 2nd Part?
It is said that until the news of Chadwick replaced by Letitia Wright in Black Panther 2 was out. Many of the team members didn’t even know that Boseman is suffering for Cancer.
Though it is not confirmed who will replace Chadwick but there are fair chances that Shuri will replace Chadwick as Black Panther.
Also, Letitia Wright has not released any official statement regarding her role or the following changes in the future.
This issue is quite sensitive because the whole of Hollywood is mourning for her loss, so we expect an official statement from Wright to come out as soon as possible.
Why Shuri is the best replacement for Black Panther?
According to the comic book series, Shuri is the most logical choice for the upcoming sequel, as Shuri takes over as Black Panther. Based on the novel by Reggie Hedlund, Shuri is directed towards Limbo to save Tretala, where she realizes that Tchala is not.
As she travels to the USA, to begin reporting her tragic dismissal, her journey to becoming the next Black Panther begins.
