Fans even started a petition to recast T’Challa as it would not make sense to continue Wakanda’s story without its king. Fans do agree that Chadwick Boseman portrayed the character very well and established the character with the viewers. However, it would not make sense to continue the series without the lead character.

And as Feige said that these characters deserve to continue, the same goes for the character of T’Challa. Anyone from the cast can continue playing the character, but the studio needs to recast T’Challa.

As for now, the studio head Kevin Feige said that if the studio plans a threequel, they would continue with the same cast. However, as the studio has already announced the next two phases of the MCU, there wouldn’t be another Black Panther film till 2025.

Black Panther is set to release on November 11, 2022.
