WASHINGTON:

Marvel Studios, Chief Kevin Feige announced that the studio would not recast Chadwick Boseman's character in the Black Panther sequel following the actor's death.

Feige said that the sequel would honour Boseman's legacy by continuing to "explore the world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film." He did not give details but said the sequel was due to arrive in movie theatres by July 2022.

Black Panther executive producer Victoria Alonso last month denied speculation that the filmmakers planned to use a digital double for Boseman in the sequel.

The sequel would be directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler who had co-written and helmed the first instalment as well, as reported by Fox News.'

Black Panther,' which was the late star's standalone, received three Oscar awards including the best motion picture of the year.

Fans have been wondering about what is in the store for the late actor's character from Marvel's 'Avengers' and 'Black Panther.'

Boseman died in August of colon cancer at age 43 after a four year battle with the disease that he had kept private.
