Lupita Nyong’o was very much on Marvel’s side when the Hollywood studio decided against the idea of recasting the late Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther following his untimely death from colon cancer in August 2020

Lupita Nyong’o was very much on Marvel’s side when the Hollywood studio decided against the idea of recasting the late Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther following his untimely death from colon cancer in August 2020. (Read More Here).

Boseman had been so private about his health battle that not even his closest industry peers and cast members were aware of just how poorly he’d been doing in the lead-up to his demise.

Nyong’o, who covers the latest issue of “The Hollywood Reporter,” tells the publication that while she’s aware that many people were open to the idea of having T’Challa recast and played by another actor, the actress said she didn’t “have the patience” to even consider that being a possibility. “That is not the death of the Black Panther, that’s the whole point.”

“It’s laying to rest [T’Challa] and allowing for real life to inform the story of the movies. I know that there are all sorts of reasons why people want him to be recast, but I don’t have the patience. I don’t have the presence of mind, or I don’t have the objectivity to argue with that. I don’t. I’m very biased.” Nyong’o further recalled how she, too, was in the dark about Boseman’s health struggle, recounting how she had once tried to get him to join her on a press tour in South Africa following the release of “Black Panther,” a request which he vehemently refused, which she now knows was due to his cancer fight.
