Black Panther: Wakanda Forever addresses T’Challa’s death in realistic fashion. In fact, it mirrors Chadwick Boseman’s life.
The following contains potential spoilers.
In other words, proceed with caution.
On August 28, 2020, Chadwick Boseman died of complications from colon cancer.
He was only 43.
Chadwick Boseman’s sudden passing shook the world.
The Black Panther franchise also lost its star.
To honor his legacy, Marvel Studios won’t recast T’Challa.
However, Black Panther lives on.
After all, the Black Panther is not just a character.
Rather, it’s a title. A symbol.
The upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever keeps its spirit alive.
Moreover, it’s a tribute to Chadwick Boseman.
After his passing, rumors spread of how T’Challa dies.
Since he’s not recast, how is his death explained?
On December 2020, I scooped that T’Challa won’t be killed by a villain.
How Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Will Address Chadwick Boseman’s Death
At the time, bogus rumors exploded.
Fake news circulated of Chadwick Boseman resurrected in CGI.
It was distasteful.
Marvel Studios quickly debunked it.
There’s no special-effects killing of T’Challa.
Dr. Doom or Namor slaying T’Challa filled headlines.
I then revealed what insiders shared.
T’Challa’s passing will reflect the sad reality of how Boseman died, from a disease. Whether this is cancer or not, I am not currently aware but that seems to be the likely scenario, a way of honoring the actor, and acknowledging that everyone, even superheroes, can succumb to a real-life illness.
Sources now provided an update.
T’Challa loses his life to cancer.
No colorful foe takes him to the grave.
There’s no gigantic fist fight.
No otherworldly battle.
It’ll be a haunting dose of reality.
By doing so, Marvel Studios is paying their respects to Boseman.
There is dignity and class.
The movie apparently begins with his funeral.
Afterwards, the Wakandans proceed without T’Challa.
The title, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is optimistic.
Indeed, insiders describe this as a uplifting movie.
Yes, the opening is somber.
It should be.
Nevertheless, it will hit the ground running.
The picture reportedly focuses on T’Challa’s sister Shuri (Letitia Wright).
Shuri has to prove herself deserving to be the next Black Panther.
In the end, it’ll be up to audiences to agree or not.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has big shoes to fill.
