As I'm sure we all know, Chadwick Boseman, he of the Black Panther fame, has joined his ancestors in Wakanda. It appeared that he was due to appear in further MCU features (they'd've been CRAZY to let him go!)

How do they deal with this? Get an actor who looks very nearly the same? Get one who seems to do the part even better? Rely on legacy and title value and just replace him with someone newer (and cheaper)?

Same question for others who simply choose to leave a role. How would you replace them? 

I guess the same question applies for TV, but this is more immediate. And "replace the character" isn't viable in movies.

How would you do it?
