South Africans have called upon Marvel Studios to make Atandwa Kani the next Black Panther. The people feel it is 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.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the people of SA have taken to social media to call upon Marvel to so right by Chadwick, and they believe that making Atandwa the next Black Panther will 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.
Atandwa was trending all over social media as fans called on Marvel to cast him as the new Black Panther. If the second movie is incomplete and needs to be finished, SA believes Atandwa should be the one to step up to the plate.
While many agree with the trending #Atandwa4BlackPanther, many too feel it is a tad early to already be naming a new Black Panther. Time will tell what Marvel decides to do, but the people have spoken.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that veteran actor John Kani expresses sadness in not being able to attend the funeral of the late legendary actor Chadwick Boseman. While it is a heavy time, Kani would have liked to have been able to pay his respects in person.
Many influential lives have been lost as of late and the people of Mzansi have been in mourning for some time. Life is so short and these lost lives have reminded us all to make the most of every moment.
Kani wanted to attend Chadwick’s funeral with actress Connie Chiume in New York, but that border lockdowns due to the coronavirus have stopped them from doing so.
