To think of Black Panther and not talk about Chadwick Boseman would be a crime in Wakanda. Even after Chadwick Boseman's early death, his fans still think of him as King T'Challa.
Now, there are reports that we might get to see Boseman back in Black Panther 2 using a computer-generated interface, commonly known as CGI effects.
Chadwick Boseman's death came as a surprise to his ardent fans and Disney, who were reportedly planning to start Black Panther 2 movie. As it turns out, Marvel might have an option to bring him back, but the path would not be easy.
As per an alleged insider, Marvel might go the Carrie Fisher route by having a double cameo to give Boseman's character a closure that everyone deserves.
Back when Carrie Fisher passed away, it was told that she would not appear in the film but Disney changed its mind. With the help of several unused footages from other films, Disney made sure that Carrie Fisher's Star Wars character would deserve the end. In the Star Wars, we got a few final lines from the actress, and then she passes away. So, if Disney will take this option with Chadwick Boseman, then we might get to see a glimpse of him in the forthcoming Black Panther 2 movie.
