The worlds of cinema and TV have always felt like cousins who, at best, know how to share things rather well. Marvel Studios rely on this sharing to bring the future of their Marvel Cinematic Universe to be an even richer era of content, as several Disney shows planned by the company will attract characters from films in the world of streaming series. But a character you will never see in that kind of arrangement is the role of Chadwick Boseman Black Panther , King T 'Challa.
During a recent interview for his new film 21 Bridges , Boseman was asked with whom he would have mated for another Marvel adventure. And sensing a suggestion from The Falcon and Winter Soldier in the hypothetical air, he laughed and replied like this:
I wouldn't do it, because I don't want to do a TV show.
Chadwick Boseman even took a step further in his response, and said that among the things he was really excited about joining in the future, none of them was a franchise. Somewhere, in the offices of Disney and Marvel Studios, someone's feelings were probably hurt. If you can hear someone playing “Beautiful Ghosts” by Taylor Swift from Cats , you'll know who needs a hug.
With the MCU more than likely it is expanding into four films a year and presumably three Disney shows a year, there is a lot of content that will come to fans coming years. One of these films in that canon seems to be Black Panther 2 , which sees director Ryan Coogler return to Marvel Studios , for a film due out in May 2022. But since that project is still in a slight state of flux, this could be the reason why Chadwick Boseman is not yet enthusiastic about his franchise.
It is certainly a bold statement for someone to come out of an outlet like MTV International, as fans of Boseman's performance like T'Challa will probably want as much as they can get from his memorable character . However, there is always the possibility that, like any good Marvel Studios employee, Chadwick Boseman is playing the long-time scammer and is throwing people off the scent with some misinformation.
Stranger things have happened in the Marvel film universe, and it would be a pleasant surprise to tune in to a future episode of something similar What If … or WandaVision and see the king of Wakanda Boseman going crazy to save the day. We certainly didn't expect Robert Downey Jr. to come back soon, and look what happened there!
At the moment, you can see Chadwick Boseman on the big screen in his latest film, 21 Bridges , which is now in theaters. As for Disney, you can see Boseman's work in the various Marvel movies he starred in, including Avengers: Endgame , on the streaming platform.
