ウィンストンデューク expects ブラックパンサー‘s King T’Challa to return eventually.
との新しいインタビューで エスクァイア 月曜日に公開, NS ブラックパンサー: ワカンダフォーエバー スター, 36, expressed some frustration with Marvel Cinematic Universe fans who publicly supported for Marvel Studios to recast チャドウィック・ボーズマン‘s character as first trailers for the sequel were unveiled in July. (ボーズマン died of colon cancer in 2020 年齢で 43.)
Duke told the outlet that some fans “center their own need for a character when none of this would be possible if the people who brought this to life didn’t participate, from behind the scenes to in front of it.”
インタビュー中, Duke also noted that it is likely ブラックパンサー will eventually receive a reboot, at which point another actor will take an opportunity to play T’Challa.
“There’s no way they’ll never remake ブラックパンサー 将来,” Duke said. “There’s no way that the saga and interpretation of T’Challa, King of Wakanda, will end.”
“He is canon. So trust that it’ll come,” 俳優が追加しました. “But allow this to be a human experience.”
Duke, who plays M’Baku in the ブラックパンサー シリーズ, has spoken about his feelings after Boseman’s death in the run-up to ワカンダフォーエバーのリリース. At a New York City screening of the movie last Tuesday, the star told PEOPLE that he is understanding of the loss experienced by チャドウィック・ボーズマン‘s widow after the death of his own mother.
“What’s been powerful here is we’re all going through a lot of loss. I lost my mom recently, 2週間前に,” he said at the screening. “It’s tough.”
Duke says he had a conversation with Taylor Simone Ledward, 31, who married Boseman in 2018, about their shared loss.
“I said to her recently, I can’t say I fully understood what you were going through until today, to fully come close to understanding the grief you are experiencing.”
“ほら, we all showed up and participated in starting in the foundation for him at the Smithsonian,” says Duke. “We’re just here for her and we support her. He’s going be with us forever. And she will be.”
In an October interview on the JemeleHillはDrakeとKanyeWestEndingの確執セットを「他の若いラッパーのための素晴らしい例」と述べています ポッドキャスト, Duke called the loss of Boseman “something that we have to wrestle with daily on set” として ワカンダフォーエバー team unexpectedly embarked on the highly-anticipated sequel without its lead actor.

“There was a gaping hole when it came to his presence,” the actor revealed on the podcast. “You felt it daily. You felt him not being there.”
“He was a very gentle presence of strength, パワー, and scope,” Duke said of working with Boseman on the podcast. “You knew he was there, but he didn’t have to say anything. He wasn’t walking around with a big ego… You don’t realize the impact when they’re there.”
“But when they’re not, it’s apparent,” 彼が追加した. “You feel it intrinsically and that was the experience on set daily for a year.”
