    According to various sources, Marvel Studios and Disney is contemplating replacing Black Panther with a woman fairly soon.  Possibly as early as "Black Panther 2" because apparently some people at Marvel didn't think Black Panther was diversified enough....in spite having a black lead actor and a predominantly black cast, but eh.  Keep in mind, none of this has been confirmed yet by Kevin Feige or anyone official at either Marvel Studios and/or Disney themselves, so take this information with a grain of salt.

    Assuming this information is true though, I will say this much. I think it would be a mistake to replace Black Panther with a woman. Not because I don't believe a woman can be black panther.   I'm saying this because we're barely getting to know the one we just got from the first movie.  T'Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) was barely establishing himself as the new king of Wakanda in the movie itself.  Why not further the story?  Show us how T'Challa is as a king in the next sequel.  T'Challa announced to the world about how Wakanda wanted to share it's resources to help the world, so how is that decision going to affect the MCU and by extension, his country?   Seriously, there's still so much you can explore with his character that replacing him now would just be anti-climatic at this point.  Seriously at least give us a trilogy with him as Black Panther before he passes the mantle to his sister, as it's being rumored. 

    Heck even Thor got a trilogy before it was announced that Jane Foster was going to be the new Thor in the next thor film. 

    Plus, if this rumor is true, this baffles me on so many levels.  First of all,  Black Panther was nominated for "Best Picture", with Disney CEO Bob Iger claiming it's as good as films like the "Godfather" and "Goodfellas?"  Granted, I know all films are subjective, and he's entitled to his opinion, but I still say that Black Panther's best picture nomination was bullshit for varying reasons, as it did NOT deserve that best picture nomination, but i digress.  Regardless of how I felt about the movie, the film was still a best picture nominee at the Oscars, and it grossed over a BILLION DOLLARS, so again why would you replace your key main character after the first movie had that much success?  It doesn't make sense from any logical perspective. 

    However, this is just a rumor, as none of this is confirmed, and I sincerely hope it's all bullshit for the reasons I just said.  Granted, i know marvel and disney will do whatever they want regardless of what anyone thinks, but I stand by what I said.  If rumors are true about Black Panther's T'Challa passing the mantle to his sister in the next movie, then I think it's a mistake.  But what do I know?  What are your thoughts on this?

    I don't think it's going to happen. Ironically the Black Widow movie is supposed to be more female empowerment but the only interesting character in it is the Red Guardian.

    I call B.S.
    "Black Panther" was one of the most talked-about movies of that year and grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide. Why would they mess with that kind of success?

    Well I think they should find a dwarf black, transgender woman from China or Japan.  Maybe Korea. 

    Diversity!
