Black Panther 2 would have had a completely different story arc if original hero Chadwick Boseman was still alive. Director Ryan Coogler has revealed what could have been the original plotline for Black Panther 2, had Boseman been still alive.

“In the script, T'Challa was a dad who'd had this forced five-year absence from his son's life," Coogler said. "The first scene was an animated sequence. You hear Nakia talking to Toussaint. She said, 'Tell me what you know about your father.' You realise that he doesn't know his dad was the Black Panther'". The story was supposed to explore the father-son equation after T’Challa was missing for five years after Infinity War.

“He's never met him, and Nakia is remarried to a Haitian dude. Then, we cut to reality and it's the night that everybody comes back from the Blip. You see T'Challa meet the kid for the first time. Then it cuts ahead three years and he's essentially co-parenting."

Tenoch Huerta's Prince Namor was the lead antagonist in the sequel and with revelations about the original script being different from the film, filmmaker Ryan Coogler also confirmed that Namor was always going to be a part of the film. With Boseman's character, the film would explore him dealing with the new reality in the post-Blip world while also battling Namor.
