"No. There's only one Chadwick and he's not with us," said Alonso as translated and quoted by The Wrap. "Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really."

Boseman who appeared in the movies "Get on Up" and "Marshall," received critical acclaim and international fame for playing the superhero. He was decorated with several accolades and awards for his portrayal of Black Panther in four MCU films.

Speaking with the publication, Alonso also talked about Boseman's contribution to the Marvel studios. She said he a "wonder of a human being" and they definitely plan to honour his legacy.

As per Alonso, his contribution "elevated" them as a company and he "has left his moment in history."

"But it is not a long time, we have to think carefully about what we are going to do, and how, and think about how we are going to honor the franchise," Alonso added.
