Ever since Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away in August, the question on many fans' lips has been whether the late actor will appear in Black Panther 2. Now Marvel Studios has finally revealed that the sequel won't use a digital double for the late actor.

Speaking with Argentinian publication Clarin, Marvel Studios Executive Vice President of Production, Victoria Alonso said that there's "only one Chadwick and he's not with us." Instead, the highly anticipated sequel will go on without Boseman as T’Challa. "Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really."

Marvel's parent company, Disney, has garnered criticism in the past for resurrecting actors for the usage of CG. This time around, we could see Disney do thing's a little differently, and decidedly alter Black Panther's storyline – possibly to include the king of Wakanda's death?

Originally, Marvel Studios planned to shoot the sequel to Black Panther early next year for a release in 2022, and production has yet to be delayed. Ryan Coogler, the writer and director of both the first film and its upcoming sequel, said that he was unaware that Boseman was battling cancer and his death came as a shock to the entire cast and crew.

There have been rumors swirling that T'Challa's little sister Princess Shuri in the film, played by Letitia Wright, could become the next Black Panther in the forthcoming sequel.

However, speaking to Porter recently, the actress said that it's too early to talk about plans for the sequel. "We're just still mourning Chad, so it's not something I even want to think about," she said. "The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We're just grieving at the moment, so it's trying to find the light in the midst of it."
