Black Panther's legacy will continue, but not with someone new in the role.
On Thursday, Marvel Studios said it will not recast the character played by the late Chadwick Boseman.
To honor the legacy that Chad helped us build, we want to continue to explore the world of Wakanda." The sequel is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022, and will be written and directed by Ryan Coogler.
CNN reports that Boseman died in August at age 43, after fighting a private battle with colon cancer.
