If ever an actor embodied a role, it was the late great Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa in Black Panther.
Chadwick was also excellent portraying James Brown. I must also mention Nelsan Ellis, who died at the the young age of 39. Nelsan portrayed Bobby Byrd to Chadwick’s James Brown in the film Get On Up.
Chadwick’s stellar acting as Jackie Robinson in the film 42 deserves mention as well. Sadly, Chadwick’s life was cut short by cancer, a disease that claimed my mom a few years ago. Marvel announced that the role would not be recast for Black Panther II, which is a fitting tribute to Chadwick’s legacy.
So, how can Marvel honor Chadwick and continue T’Challa’s story? Well, how about introducing his son Azari, the child T’Challa had with his ex-wife Storm?
