Dedicated to our friend, our inspiration and our hero Chadwick Boseman.

It was amazing to be able to work with him. It was short because our episodes are not long. I think he was the first actor to sign. He wanted to read the directions aloud and make it into a kind of play. He was really happy to be able to play this version of T’Challa. He could play the King, but without the role, royalty and everything that goes with it. He could tone it down, and do more in the comedy“.

The character of T’Challa is expected to appear in all 4 episodes of What If, it remains to be seen in what form.
