• Chadwick Boseman passed away last August 28th at the age of 43 while fighting against colon cancer.
• He and the whole cast of Black Panther won a SAG award and the movie was the only superhero movie to be nominated for the Oscar's.
• The talented actor got married with singer Taylor Simone Ledward right before leaving us.
• Black Panther was the first black superhero, created by Marvel Studios.


It's been hard for the audience to say goodbye to such a beloved character as Black Panther. The superhero’s first appearance in the Avengers franchise was in Captain America Civil War (2016), followed by Infinity War (2018), Black Panther (2018) and End Game (2019), Marvel had the intention of filming five movies with this character, so they might decide to give the throne of Wakanda to one of the many supporting characters in the movie.

The tribute ABC decided to pay the actor will take place after the commercial free screening of Black Panther. The idea is to honor the actor but mostly the person and his long silent fight against cancer.
