Why We Think They Should Recast Black Panther


Black Panther was the first-ever African American superhero movie. For the first time ever, Africa was shown as the place where the rest of the world couldn’t enter, and the country which had everything.

Wakanda place out of time:

Wakanda| Black Panther

Wakanda broke so many stereotypes about Africa and made every African American and everyone in the community looks at it with pride and say, “There’s still hope left in the world.” The movie was a huge success, and the entire cast gave nothing but the best.

“Chadwick Boseman gave the best performance he could, with the perfect physique while battling cancer” every time I read this line, I just get chills, don’t you?

The best leave us soon…

Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther

Nothing good lasts forever. Chadwick Boseman was too good a person and an actor that God decided to call him to Heaven to join Stan Lee soon. We know they have a peaceful life there, but we just can’t come to reality and accept that they have left us.

Fans uproar:

Fans worldwide have started to raise voice and sign petition asking Marvel to not replace Chadwick Boseman‘s, Black Panther. While we understand the sentiment and also stand with them, more voices are being raised. Some fans have asked to show T’Chala’s funeral as the opening scene and then make Shuri his sister, the new Black Panther. Passing on the mantle but not going out of the family.

Contrasting petition:

But some fans have been asking others to be reasonable and say that Black Panther was a first character which brought so much pride and happiness to every African out there. They are asking the fans to think if Chadwick would’ve wanted the same.

Loyal to his roots:

Chadwick Boseman, ever since his first movie, made sure he did something with the character to touch and inspire people. All of his hit movies were about the legends in the African community. That’s how faithful and loyal he is to his roots.

Our stance:

We also stand with that and say, why not cast another dynamic actor who stands for everything Chadwick stood for. That will keep the Black Panther movie going forward and keep giving hopes to the millions of Africans worldwide. And come on, it’s not like we can or will ever forget Chadwick. Nothing will make us forget him.

Forever in our hearts:

Heath Ledger as Joker

Heath Ledger played Joker once, and he is still in all our thoughts when it comes to iconic roles. Chadwick gave us so many iconic performances, played T’Chala in milestone movies of Marvel. So, I don’t think there is anything anyone or any actor can do to play T’Chala that will make us forget our true Wakandan King, CHADWICK BOSEMAN!
