Atandwa Kani to be the next king of Wakanda: Mzansi’s spoken
South Africans have called upon Marvel Studios to make Atandwa Kani the next Black Panther.
The people felt it was only right that an African actor takes the opening after the original actor Chadwick Boseman sadly passed away.
Atandwa’s father John Kani starred alongside Chadwick in Black Panther. John has ever only spoken highly of Chadwick and now the people of Mzansi want to see Atandwa star alongside his father again.
Briefly News learnt that the people of SA took to social media to call upon Marvel to so right by Chadwick, and they believed that making Atandwa the next Black Panther would be a way to do that.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a source close to the late actor said that despite his declining health, Boseman was convinced that he would recover and film the second movie. Sadly, this did not happen and the show must go on.
