Marvel will not make a digital replacement for Chadwick Boseman in the wake of Black Panther. While the studio still does not reveal its plans, the idea of recreating the late actor in computer graphics has been crossed out according to Victoria Alonso, executive vice president of Marvel Studios: “Chadwick is unique, and he is no longer with us. Our king, unfortunately, also died in real life, not only in fiction, ”said the Argentine in an interview with Clarín.
“We are taking the time to see how we are going to resume history, and what we are going to do to honor this very unexpected and terrible occurrence,” he continued. “Because Chadwick was not only a wonderful human being every day we spent together for five years, but it also seems that the character he played elevated us as a company, and left his mark on history.”
The question of how to drive Black Panther without Chadwick Boseman doesn’t really seem to bother Marvel at the moment, which is much more focused on how to honor the legacy of the actor and his character. Victoria Alonso’s statements are in line with information from the Hollywood Reporter who, in September 2020, published that “Disney sources say the company is dealing with mourning, and is focused on paying homage to Boseman, rather than carrying out the sequence of Black Panther ”- find out more.
