Marvel’s upcoming animated series What If…? revealed a teaser during the recent Disney Investor conference, and in it there was a seen featuring T’Challa aka Black Panther. We know that most of the original actors are voicing their characters in the show, and that led to questions whether Marvel had found someone to replace the late Chadwick Boseman. well, according to Kevin Feige, there was no need because Boseman did the voice himself.
In the recent issue of Emmy Magazine, Feige revealed that Boseman actually “came in about four times and recorded numerous episodes” before his death last August. “In hindsight, it’s very moving,” Feige said.
One of the episodes in question appears to be T’Challa if he were Star-Lord, leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Black Panther II is proceeding without Boseman, and it’s unclear how they intend to write the character off. But at least we know that Boseman’s time in the MCU is far from over.
Feige also talked about the upcoming She-Hulk series, which will star Tatiana Maslany as Jen Walters and include Mark Ruffalo as her cousin Bruce Banner the Hulk. Rather than a traditional Marvel-style action series, it will instead be a half-hour legal comedy. Like, I guess, the Ally McBeal of the MCU? “We’ve never done that before”, Feige said.
