HP comes under fantasy genre and there's not much difference between sci-fi and fantasy.

Even Rowling could've pulled out some magical plot device out of her ass if she wanted to remove Dumbledore's character.

Fans can give whatever excuses they want, the bottom line is that Marvel now have to somehow kill T'Challa off screen to remove his character, which would be a great disservice to him.

There can be n number of Black Panthers, but there's only one T'Challa in the MCU.

Nothing wrong with honoring the actor, but marvel is doing it by dishonouring the character...and character is always bigger than the actor imo.

So, replacing Chadwick with another character wouldn't be disservice to the actor...but having Shuri continue T'Challa's legacy would be a disservice? smiley29 yeah, right!


Also, there can be n number of T'Challas as well, coz there are n universes.  MCU is just one fictional universe.  They can introduce another T'Challa, in another universe, if they're really dying to write stories for T'Challa's version Black Panther.

Not sure, what's the problem with makers trying to honor Chadwick's memory .....when neither his fans, nor his family, not Black Panther fans, nor his co-actors etc etc etc have any problem with it.

Wouldn't be the first time in history also, when a character will be retired/killed off because of actor's sudden death. If they replaced him, they won't even be able to show his flashbacks / his scenes as BP, in later movies in MCU. They are immortalizing this version of T'Challa / Black Panther, within this franchise.


But off course, they are just 'excuses'.smiley44

I was talking about disservice to the CHARACTER, not the ACTOR. I don't think a recast would be disservicing the actor either. Replacing Dumbledore wasn't a disservice to Richard Harris.

There's only one T'Challa whose journey we have seen from Civil War till Endgame. Any other T'Challa from another multiverse or dimension would be another version of him, not him.

Fans and family are being emotional. Marvel is taking this decision on public demand, because they don't want to make them angry. But from storytelling point of view, it's not a correct decision imo.

If they want to show flashback scenes, they could show the recasted actor do the same scenes in place of Chadwick.
