There is an expression that is cliché in the entertainment business:  “The show must go on.”

And sometimes that means even when your heart, in the moment, says it should not.  For example, we all were struck at the sudden passing of Chadwick Boseman last week.  He, of course was not just the star of  “Black Panther,” HE WAS “Black Panther.”  No one could fill his shoes in our mind(s), right?

Well, after a week of considering what to do about “Black Panther 2,” Disney has decided the show must indeed go on.

According to rumor, the movie (that was already DEEP in pre-production) with feature an initial plot where Boseman’s “T’Challa,” dies off screen and his sister “Shuri” (played by Letitia Wright) will assume the mantle of hero of Wakanda.

This will make it easier to digest from a public relations standpoint as instead of re-casting the part (that would not have worked), they will be able to honor the actor while passing on character to an African-American woman (marking the third time the Marvel Cinematic Universe has featured a female lead “Captain Marvel” and the upcoming “Black Widow”).
