The first "Black Panther" which grossed over 1.3 billion dollars at the worldwide box office was a cultural phenomenon that won praises from different parts of the world. But last year, many were plunged into grief when the sad news emerged that Boseman Chadwick who portrayed King T'Challa in the movie has died. Chadwick died of colon cancer at the age of 43.

Following the death of Chadwick, Marvel had revealed that they will not recast T'Challa in the movie, and that is obviously what many fans wanted.

In an interview with Variety in June, the head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige had said that that working on the sequel of Black Panther without Boseman Chadwick is very emotional for them, and added that they are going to do it in a way that will make the late actor proud.

Many are excited that the world of Wakanda will be brought back to the public, and are waiting to see how the storyline will be.
