Speaking of Red Hulk, I doubt there's any need for him yet, Hulk himself doesn't get enough exposure (due to legal reasons) on his own and we are about to get She-Hulk, Thunderbolts already gonna have Abomination so putting Red Hulk, no matter who it is, on the team would seem like overkill and wasting future story potential right away. Red Hulk could have a really cool movie on its own based on the mystery around Red's true identity where Hulk and She-Hulk try to uncover that mystery.

Yeah, adding Red Hulk to the T-Bolts would just be putting him in for the sake of it, especially if they are going to use Abomination

Im in the camp that that TChalla as a character should have continued in the BP franchise. I loved Bosemans contribution as BP.. but it is pure

I agree. And did Disney say they wouldn't recast at all? Or just "at this time?" With the multiverse getting established it could also be a way to recast the character.

If another character in the movie becomes Black Panther, then they are, in effect, recasting the character. It's just in a bit more of an organic way.

I don't find this very surprising I mean they have been building what seems like a version of Thunderbolts for a while, pretty cool news though I'm all for a Thunderbolts movie just to see a cool ensemble cast.

i'm down with a thunderbolts movie although tbh i think it would better as a series, where you could have some characters gradually reform and others attempt to reform but backslide etc. Yes you could do that in a 2-hour movie but it would feel rushed, and if you gotta have a redemption arc (which seems inevitable cuz Disney) would be better to give it time to develop. Plus you can even have the 1st ep mimic the 1st comic with them all in new costumes and the reveal that they are all villains at the end. I dunno. I'm definitely interested though.

Abom feels like a bit of a powerhouse for this team although certainly they seem to be trying to bring the character back into the limelight with appearances in Shang-chi and She-hulk. But then Emil is a highly trained soldier so i guess he fits in with the rest of the potential team members.

This definitely has my attention. I'm fan of the team and it's interesting to see how the team will come together for the MCU and which members they'll choose. Although yeah there is the issue with Ross. I don't know, I understand what people are saying and that it would be kinda unfair and hypocritical to recast him and I don't know if these decisions should be made based on the importance of the character (which is how Marvel does it apparently, IF they indeed recast him), but I don't want another character's story coming to an end with no explanation other than a quick reference about it. I'm not saying that Tchalla's off screen demise will be handled lightly, they even said the 2nd movie is a tribute to him, but Ross didn't have the importance of the Black Panther in the MCU, so just a little dialogue about it might be what happens if they don't recast him.

This could be interesting as for the team, I would go with

Thats a fairly narrow view....Theyre not JUST characters. For one, BP is a headliner. Ross is A supporter. And Chadwick Boseman meant an incredible deal to a ton of people, not the least of which were black communities excited to represented by a major blockbuster character. Your argument that they are comparable is dubious as is supporting statements like no one cared that they replaced hulk actors, because some people did have things to say about that. I actually think Boseman SHOULD be replaced because its a deprivation to lose the character and I think the actor would want both the story and the representation to continue, but not because of some misplaced idea that the actors are simply interchangeable on these characters.

I'm not saying they have the same status, but facts are facts. Death is the great equalizer. The actors are dead. The characters are not.

And when I said no one cared re: Hulk what I'm saying is, no producer or studio head ever said "there can't be another Hulk after Bana/Norton".

Because that would have been senseless.

And yes Chadwick did an incredible job, but he isn't the only black actor that ever was, is, or will be. The black and comic community celebrated the BLACK PANTHER coming to the screen. If Chadwick had passed on the role, it certainly wouldn't have meant no one else could do it. Before he was cast, I was hoping Adrian Holmes would have the spot. If you haven't seen him, he had an excellent cop show, 19-2, that he starrred in and I think he would've been perfect for T'Challa (check it out, its really good). I didn't say actors are "simply interchangeable"....THAT is a narrow view of what I said.

But at the end of the day, whether its Zorro, Shaft, Superman, Batman, Black Panther, Bond, Samantha Stevens, Starbuck, Blade or Perry Mason, they're all characters and they can be played by more than one actor.
