Recast T'Challa - Boseman's Brother Thinks The Actor Would Approve

Chadwick Boseman’s brother thinks the actor would approve of a recast T’Challa. This option is one that Marvel Studios has ruled out, though for many fans, it was the wrong call. Of course, we need to see how things are handled in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before we can really say that. However I know many fans of the character who felt T’Challa was powerful enough that a recast was needed after Boseman’s tragic passing so young. One of them is Chadwick’s brother Derrick. Speaking with TMZ recently the outlets lays out what Derrick Boseman said to them. There’s no actual quote, so I have copied the full text here for you.

  • I agree. Tchalla should live on.

  • I’ve been saying this the whole time. Killing off T’Challa is to kill the Black Panther franchise as a whole

  • “I do not doubt Derrick knows his brother better than most, but it’s always going to be a tricky touchpoint whichever way we look at it. ”

    It’s really not tricky. You recast. You emphasise the point that T’Challa’s legacy is bigger than any one man, no role is less than the person who plays it, no role at all. All they have to do is give it to someone who throws themselves convincingly into the role itself. Stop canonising the actor and canonise the role itself.

  • There is nothing sacred about a character in a comic book movie. Just recast.

    • Agreed

  • So we have now reached the point where reports are ‘quoting’ what some dude SAYS that Chadwick’s brother BELIEVES Chadwick would want?????

    Talk about desperation to morally validate recasting.

    Oh deary me…..
