The studio honors their 'Black Panther' star with a stunning video.
Marvel Studios has released a moving video tribute to late actor Chadwick Boseman. The Black Panther star tragically passed away three days ago after a long battle with colon cancer. While Boseman has several amazing performances to his credit, his biggest blockbuster role is Black Panther in the Marvel franchise.
Stream the video tribute to Chadwick below.
In 2016, unbeknownst to the general public, Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer. That same year, he was cast as King T'Challa/Black Panther in the Marvel franchise film Captain America: Civil War.
The following year, he reprised his role as King T'Challa in the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film hauled in $1.3 billion at the global box office. In large part due to Boseman's stellar performance, Black Panther became a pop culture phenomenon.
Boseman brought black panther to life once again in Avengers: Infinity War later in 2018. It became the highest-grossing film of the year, with Black Panther coming in second. The incomparable Avengers: Endgame followed in 2019. The movie, which once again featured Boseman as Black Panther, quickly smashed box office records, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time.
Chadwick Boseman was undoubtedly a generational talent. During his career, garnered two MTV Movie Awards for Best Hero and Best Performance in a Movie and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture for his performance as Black Panther.
