Marvel Studios unveiled its awaited first teaser trailer for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2022 panel on July 24. The film has been helmed by Ryan Coogler who has also penned a riveting screenplay for the movie alongside Joe Robert Cole. The film is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Whilst many fans had been feeling bitter-sweet and yet happy for the same initially, now from the past few hours, fans have been feeling hurt and furious that this film is the final installment in MCU phase 4. Many of them are not ready to accept the fact that makers have not bothered to recast the iconic character of T’Challa (Late Chadwick Boseman) in the film. This has resulted in a new type of trend that’s been seen going viral on Twitter. The #recastTchalla bandwagon is getting unstoppable and stronger. Fans want to see more of their favorite Black superhero T’Challa on screens and they all want makers to recast and not kill off the character entirely from the MCU.

The official synopsis of the film reads, “In Marvel Studios 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever',  Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M'Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T'Challa's death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livanalli.”

Fans are not happy with the filmmakers' decision to not recast another actor for essaying the role of T’Challa in the film. 

“T’Challa is on top of the black superhero hierarchy #RecastTChalla #SaveTChalla #BlackPantherWakandaForever #BlackPanther,” shared a fan.

“Thank you!! Hollywood loves to market black trauma. Sad that they are using Chadwick’s loss in that way. Recast T’Challa or bring in a variant #RecastTChalla #BlackPantherWakandaForever #BlackPanther2 #BlackPanther,” added another fan.

“We don’t have to accept T’Challa being killed off in a fictional MCU because the actor who portrayed him in ONE SOLO film has unfortunately passed. As Boseman’s family members have publicly agreed with #RecastTChalla, keeping 616 T’Challa alive honors Chadwick. #SDCC,” shared a fan.

“I am a big fan of marvel studios but they are not always right. Not choosing to recast T’Challa will be one of their biggest errors. Recast T’Challa #RecastTChalla #BlackPantherWakandaForever #BlackPanther,” a fan noted. “But it's been made clear that Chadwick's own family members want the role recast to honor the character the Chadwick poured his heart into. What's weird is they didn't have the decency to even consult his family before making this decision. #RecastTChalla,” a fan added.
