'BLACK PANTHER' FANS LAUNCH PETITION TO RECAST T'CHALLA AFTER CHADWICK BOSEMAN'S PASSING: Fans have launched a petition on Change.org to recast T'Challa in Black Panther after Chadwick Boseman's passing last year. The petition reads in part, “By not recasting, it could stifle the opportunity for one of the most popular, leading Black superheroes to add on to their legacy. The #1 way to kill a legend, is to stop telling their story.” The petition went on, “#RecastTChalla is not a call to replace Chadwick Boseman. (No one could ever do that.) It is not asking for an immediate replacement either. Nor is this calling for the prevention of other characters to take up the mantle of Black Panther like Shuri or anyone else. This petition is merely asking to continue the portrayal of T’Challa in the MCU. #RecastTChalla is a call to fulfill the role that Chadwick Boseman worked so hard for the world to see.”
