Recently also saw the rumor that Marvel will use CGI to portray Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and T'Challa, but a Marvel Studios producer shot the rumor down, which also claimed that T'Challa would be killed off at the start of Black Panther 2 by the hands of Atlanteans and that Shuri would become the new Black Panther.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel was sidelined after Boseman's sudden demise following which filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Marvel navigated their way through grief.

The trade doesn't know how Disney/Marvel plans to proceed without Boseman as the titular Wakandan hero, but the report does mention that Letitia Wright is expected to "take on a more prominent role".

Rumors do offer that Black Panther 2 will involve Namor and the Atlanteans, but that is all speculation as of now. As Black Panther 2 gears up for production, Narcos: Mexico star Tenoch Huerta is also in talks to play the villain in the sequel. This news comes in light of Chadwick Boseman's heartbreaking demise in August. "Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV".

Alonso added, "Because Chadwick was not only a wonder. 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. 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". Following Chadwick Boseman's death, Coogler stated that he had been unaware of the actor's struggle, and that he had "spent the a year ago preparing, imagining and writing words for him to say [in the sequel], that we weren't destined to see".

Chadwick Boseman's death has left an indelible mark in Hollywood, especially in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) where he was idolised as Black Panther.
