Chadwick Boseman's unexpected death left everyone shocked and hurt. The Marvel team and Black Panther cast continue to pay tribute to their partner.
The Marvel universe continues to be shocked by the death of Chadwick Boseman, who left his mark on the MCU playing T’Challa, king of Wakanda in ‘Black Panther. Losing him when he was only 43 was a huge blow to all his fans and to the entire Marvel Studios team.
Robert Downey Jr. recalled the time he shared with the actor, how it inspired him until the last moment and declared: “'Black Panther' was undoubtedly the greatest milestone in the Marvel universe. The one where people voted with the purchase of tickets that required this. It's a fantastic movie that leveled the ground. ” The special concluded with a piece of the speech that Chadwick Boseman himself gave at the Howard University induction ceremony in 2018.
The Black Panther family says goodbye
In the last few hours messages of affection and farewell from the 'Black Panther' family have continued to arrive. Letitia Wright, who plays Suri in the MCU, simply tweeted: “It hurt. It really hurts ”. Danai Gurira went a bit further with a statement to Chadwick Boseman that begins like this: “How do you pay homage to a king?” Although he claims to be speechless, he breaks down into adjectives like “special, pure-hearted, deeply generous, real, funny, (…) zen, sweet, funny (he had the best laugh), thoughtful and truly good.”

Ryan Coogler, director of ’Black Panther,’ also released a statement in which he explained: “I realized that he was living with his illness the entire time I knew him. As a caregiver, a leader, and a man of faith, dignity, and pride, he turned his peers away from their suffering. He lived a beautiful life. I've made great art. ” Although Ryan Coogler was already working on Black Panther 2 for its premiere in 2022, it is unknown what decision Marvel Studios will make now that they have run out of their protagonist and fans do not seem very much for the work of a new king.
