Rumors do offer that Black Panther 2 will involve Namor and the Atlanteans, but that is all speculation as of now.
It's said Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, known for Netflix's Narcos: Mexico, is in talks to play one of the antagonists of the film, but the exact character is not known. "Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV".
What direction do you think Marvel should go with when it comes to Black Panther 2?
No plans have yet been revealed on how Marvel will proceed without Chadwick, but a new cast member has been found for the sequel.
"No. There is only one Chadwick, and he's no longer with us", responded Marvel Studios producer Victoria Alonso when questioned if Boseman would be created using a digital double. "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 awful, really".
Last month, his brother Derrick Boseman opened up about the actor's final days to The New York Times, as he said his brother told him, 'Man, I'm in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game'.
Black Panther II was initially scheduled to begin filming in March for release on May 6th 2022, although it will presumably now be pushed back until later in the year. Ryan Coogler is also returning to write and direct.
The unfortunate passing of Chadwick Boseman has raised a lot of questions in regards to what Black Panther's role might be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward.
