Chadwick Boseman

T'Challa was supposed to be fighting a battle on multiple fronts, making up for lost time with his son, and battling Namor and colonizers.


Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said it would've been "too soon" to recast the role of T'Challa after the death of Chadwick Boseman.


The late actor Chadwick Boseman received a Creative Emmy Award on Saturday for his voiceover role as T'Challa in the Marvel animated anthology series "What If..?" His widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted on his behalf at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.


Though Moore admits that the studio did consider recasting the role of T'Challa, they ultimately decided against it.

The Chadwick A. Boseman Memorial Scholarship has been officially established at Howard University, thanks to a generous gift from Netflix. It will be awarded to students of the College of Fine Arts who show great talent and have financial hardship.

Boseman's final appearance as King T'Challa AKA The Black Panther took place in Disney Plus' new What If...? series, and fans are celebrating the moment on social media.


The late Chadwick Boseman captivated audiences with his work on the motion picture screen, portraying powerful figures such as James Brown, Thurgood Marshall, and Jackie Robinson and of course Marvel's Black Panther. But to all who knew him, he was a proud alumni of Howard University first, even taking part in protests against the school's consolidation of the fine arts college in 1997 as a sophomore.


While many wondered viewers choked up when Chadwick Boseman's likeness appeared during the customary "In Memoriam" segment, many were upset that King T'Challa didn't win the "Best Actor" award that night.
