#RecastTchalla, A debate about Black Panther
#RecastTchalla is currently dividing the netizens online. Some fans started the campaign #RecastTchalla because they want the legacy of the character to continue. Recasting characters had been around for centuries. I mean look at how many actors had played James Bond throughout the years. Some of the Bond actors already passed away too but the recastings never deleted their legacy.
Fans of T’Challa wanted his story to continue instead of him just passing the mantle. Other characters used the mantle of Black Panther in Marvel Comics.
Some fans are opposed to #RecastTchalla. They are against it because they see Chadwick Boseman as irreplaceable.
Like I will never understand their desire to do this because this is so disrespectful to Chadwick and I hope they realize it would piss off a lot more people than they realize

People who are pushing this campaign also have a reasonable rebuttal.
After Heath died, Joaquin was a fine Joker
We lost a great human with Chadwicks passing, and if Tchalla is part of his legacy, than let him be honor him by taking on the role in a way that honors him and lets his story live on#RecastTchalla

Heath Ledger has an award-winning performance as Joker. People also said he was irreplaceable after his death. Joaquin Phoenix’s portrayal of Joker also received a lot of awards. Even if an actor passes away, a character can still be recast. Also recasting the character will never delete the legacy of the previous ones as their version will always be there.
You cannot do a Black Panther franchise without T'Challa. Everything is centered on him and the mythology has been specifically built for him since he was introduced in the 1960s. They need to recast T'Challa by Black Panther 3. Too many red flags about BP2. #RecastTchalla

X-men are about to join the MCU.
Black Panther is important in the X-men Mythos because he will end up Marrying Storm. Storm will become the Queen of Wakanda. The only way this storyline will translate to film is to recast T’Challa. Marvel’s original plan with the Black Panther franchise is to pass the Mantle to Shuri. T’Challa’s sister had taken over the mantle at a certain point in the comics. This became impossible as Leticia Wright doesn’t want to get vaccinated which is mandatory to movie tapings now.
T'Challa is Marvel's 1rst Black superhero ever. His fans have waited and want his story to be told. A journalist confirmed Boseman wanted it before passing. Chad's brother stated he wants it. Marvel must Honor Chadwick for real rather than rush out a sequel for $ #RecastTchalla

I am all for the recasting of the character rather than passing the mantle. Not recasting the character will be a deletion of T’Challa. Last Year Marvel announce that they will not recast T’Challa concerning Chadwick Boseman’s legacy.
