    No because black children are used to the fact that black men die all of the time. I had a coworker tell her daughter that Black Panther died and the little girl started crying and asked, “Did the Police kill him?” T’Challa does not deserve to die along with Chadwick Boseman, as other white superheroes have not been tied to the actors that have played them. Superman did not die with Christopher Reeve.

    As a kid, I never got over the death of James Evans on “Good Times”. The strong black man that does is the biggest trope in Hollywood. How about doing something original with a black character and letting the strong black man live for once? Recast T’Challa as John David Washington.

      Couldn’t agree more. This article is just odd. Author definitely trying to hard. Why get rid of a strong lead character like that, makes no sense. Yes recasting will be hard, as Chadwick was amazing, but it’s not impossible.

      Cleveland, Why don’t you explain to your concerned child, that T’Challah was not a criminal, so he did not have any interaction with police. He was a good guy.

    “Financial implications” = It literally costs more for a studio to STOP making an announced movie, even after they lost their reason to, than it does to just rush a production through anyway and take the consequences.
    Quite a few very bad movies have been made that way, but with Marvel, the worst we can hope for is just “Pointless”.

    I think Its a wonderful idea but mavel fan boys have a history of not supporting any strong female . Their threatened by females who are 💪. Thank god DC comic fan boys have never acted that way toward wonder woman.
