The actors literally have no choice since they are contractually obligated to film another movie and Disney is filling their pockets.

I get Chadwick's death was too early and out of nowhere since he didn't tell anyone about his cancer, but Black Panther is a fictional character. It's an unfortunate circumstance that Marvel needs to work around. But the Black Panther dates back to 1966 and there have been many iterations of him - Chadwick is just one of those iterations. Stan Lee died within the past few years. When he died did people say to stop making Marvel movies because he created a ton of the characters? Nope.

Obviously it's not exactly the same, but my point is, his death is unfortunate, but we also need to move on. Do you think Chadwick would've liked BP2 to be cancelled because he died? We'll never know, but I highly suspect the answer to that is no based on how he conducted himself.
I'm not against a new but within a year of his death?

Nolan even changed the third batman when Health Ledger died, I just think they could have moved the film back longer back than not even a year, especially when I'm sure the director and actors would I'm sure agree to wait longer before just pushing though the next film

The movie has a timeline it has to meet for its 2022 release date. You know the MCU has a strict release schedule to stick to (and COVID has already hampered the schedule enough).

Between the heartbreaking situation with Chadwick, the premature firing of James Gunn, and COVID in general, this new phase has been given a raw deal. I understand that comes off as a very first-world take on all three situations, but I stand by it. Disney couldn't have possibly imagined that their 3 biggest MCU franchises (GotG, Spidey, BP) would be affected like this at such a vulnerable moment coming off of Endgame. Us not getting more superhero movies is obviously not the most important outcome of the tragedies, but if we're specifically discussing the future of the MCU I don't believe it's too wild to comment on it.

Imagine if they actually had lost the Spidey rights last August too, I don't know what the MCU would look like at that point.
