However, the next few months will see many conversations going on behind the scenes between Kevin Feige, director Ryan Coogler and the returning cast and crew, with the sequel originally scheduled to start shooting next March in order to meet the May 2022 release date. In fact, Boseman was so determined to defeat the illness that took his life that he was set to begin training for his return in a matter of weeks.

Of course, a delay of some kind seems inevitable at this point, but we’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones that told us a She-Hulk show is coming to D+, Taskmaster would be the main villain in Black Widow and Ben Affleck is returning for The Flash, all of which were correct – that Disney and Marvel have decided on how to move forward with what was already one of the most hotly-anticipated comic book movies on the horizon, and will now be one of the most emotionally powerful and bittersweet.

According to our intel, the plan at the moment is for T’Challa to be written out of Black Panther 2 before the story starts as he’ll apparently die off-screen. Shuri will then assume the mantle and become Wakanda’s new protector on a permanent basis. Details beyond that remain unclear, but the film itself will no doubt look to pay respect to an actor that inspired a generation and convinced them that they could be heroes, and it would seem that the studio feels that making a movie capable of honoring the legacy of what Chadwick Boseman brought to the role is the most poignant tribute that they can give him.

The movie can easily flesh out Shuri’s character more and have he learn more physical demanding moves, combined with her science background. I am sure her brother’s death will be a catalyst to train, be more physical and learn. Who’s to say they won’t write more back story when they talk about how he died off screen and what she wound up doing because of it. There are endless possibilities and I think her character is a great choice to take up the suit with a few changes I am sure

So she just becomes Black Panther because the need somebody else? Nah, she should have to train and earn it… recast is better. Everybody’s letting their emotions dictate a franchise just because they liked Boseman and are sad, but there’s still a lot of story left to tell and not recasting is a bad way to honor the history.
