Chadwick Boseman Tribute Video Added To Black Panther On Disney Plus

Marvel honors the late actor with a special tribute that plays at the start of Black Panther on Disney Plus.


November 29 is Chadwick Boseman's birthday, and to mark the occasion for the late actor, Disney updated the Marvel movie intro for Black Panther on Disney Plus to be focused on him. Boseman passed away in August. This would have been his 44th birthday.

The new video uses the same structure as the main one, but the text, images, and video puts the focus on Boseman and his various appearances in the MCU.

Disney chairman Robert Iger also tweeted about the new tribute, telling fans to keep an eye on the Disney Plus version of Black Panther to catch the video.

Before this, Disney released a documentary called Chadwick Boseman: A Tribute for a King to celebrate the actor's life and the impact he made on and off the screen. This movie is currently available to watch on Disney Plus.

The first Black Panther earned over $1.3 billion at the international box office. It's the fourth highest grossing film ever at the US box office.

Black Panther 2 is currently scheduled to film in 2021 and release on May 26, 2022. Ryan Coogler, the director and writer of the first film, is attached to return. The movie will not feature a digitally recreated Boseman.
