The actor – who played the iconic superhero in the 2018 movie – died in August, after a battle with cancer.
Speaking about the follow-up, a studio executive explained they are still discussing how to move forward from the tragedy.
In a chat with Argentinian publication Clarin, Victoria Alonso reportedly ruled out using a CGI version of the star.
According to a translation from the Wrap, she said: ‘No. There’s only one Chadwick and he’s not with us.
‘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 honour this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really.
‘Because Chadwick was not only a wonder of a human being every day for the five years that we spent together, but it also seems to me that as a character what he did elevated us as a company, and has left his moment in history.
‘I know that sometimes two months go by or three months go by in production and you say, well, it was a long time,’ she added. ‘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 honour the franchise.’
Letitia Wright previously opened up about plans for the blockbuster in October, explaining they were all still in mourning for Chadwick.
The 26-year-old starred as his sister, Shuri, with the pair forming a huge friendship on set.
Addressing the Black Panther sequel with Porter, she said: ‘We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about.
‘The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it.’
Chadwick’s death was announced in a lengthy statement by his family on social media.
‘It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman,’ it read.
‘Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
‘He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
‘The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.’
