Marvel Studios pays homage to Chadwick Boseman on the actor's 44th birthday. On November 29, the production company unveiled a special rendition of Marvel's archetypal opening credits, which was dedicated exclusively to the late star. The updated segment includes the comic book progression to turn the page with photos and footage of Boseman's appearances in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. "Long live the king. #WakandaForever," wrote the studio next to the clip on Instagram. The new sequence is now the official opening for Black Pantherthat fans can stream on Disney +.
Unfortunately, Boseman died in August after a four-year battle with colon cancer. Many of his Marvel colleagues and colleagues honored him with heartfelt eulogies, namely Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler. "I had no doubt that he would go on living and continue to bless us with more," wrote Coogler. "But with a heavy heart and a feeling of deep gratitude for ever being in his presence, I have to reckon Chad is an ancestor now. And I know he will watch over us until we meet again."
The Hollywood Reporter recently confirmed that Black panther 2 Filming will begin in July 2021, but it is unknown how they will approach Boseman's death. The film is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2022. Check out Marvel Studios' birthday tribute to Boseman.
