  1. Yeah, even Chadwick Boseman himself said he was, "just fortunate to be able to play this amazing character," and that, for the story, "it's the character that's important, not the actor." Talking about his preference for fans NOT making it about him, personally.

    Not recasting T'Challa would be a HUGE mistake, by Marvel.

    They've re-cast their primary characters multiple times already, across the MCU, including the Hulk, Rhodey, and even friggin' Spider-Man. There's NO reason whatsoever that there should be a separate standard for Black Panther.

    Anybody saying otherwise should seriously sit back, grab a mirror, and ask themselves WHY, after the unexpected death of Chadwick Boseman, is it even entering their minds that the T'Challa character should also die, either off screen or somewhere in the background. (Which are two things I've actually heard people suggest.)

    It's really not rocket science lol (I feel like I'm taking CRAZY pills 💊🤪) things happen all the time, actors become unavailable to play a part they've played before for any number of reasons, including death or injury, etc.

    But that doesn't stop the stories from needing to be told.

    If you can't imagine anybody else portraying Black Panther than Chadwick Boseman, that's a failure of imagination, on your part.

    People famously had the same apprehensions and misgivings about Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and even Tom Holland as Spider-Man, until it happened.

    Fans of Chadwick Boseman should respect him and his sentiments towards the character he played so brilliantly to allow the character to continue on, in the future of the MCU, as needed.

    (I'm just sayin')


  2. Anime that makes you cry the most. Violet Evergarden. But VE does it in a way that's intentional. Like that show is designed to make you cry. Every other anime requires an emotional build up into crying. VE can do it in 23 minutes. It's actually masterful.
