There has been a lot of back and forth about T’Challa’s character in the Black Panther Movie and if it should be recasted since Boseman’s death.
Although it was announced that there will be no recasting of the character, Boseman’s brother, Derrick, reveals that he believes that his late brother would want someone else to play the beloved role.
“I think that T’Challa needs to live on in the ‘Black Panther’ franchise, and if that means tapping another actor to portray the king of Wakanda– the role Chadwick made famous and legendary, then so be it.”
He added, “There’s so much power in seeing a Black king– especially in a superhero capacity, like in the Marvel flick– which has a HUGE impact on African-American youth.”
