Marvel Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman With Emotional Video

Marvel Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman With Emotional Video

Marvel has paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, sharing an emotional video to its social media channels.

In the clip, a number of the late actor's co-stars from the Avengers series and the Black Panther movie - including Michael B Jordan, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Downey Jr. - praise him for his work and dedication to the role of T'Challa.

Speaking in the video, Angela Bassett, his on-screen mother in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, says she was in awe of his talent and his commitment.

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the series, adds that Boseman was an incredible actor.

"Chadwick is just a powerhouse, he really is so talented - every single movie he's made. There's this kind of internal, almost nobility," he says in the montage.

Lupita Nyong'o plays Nakia in Black Panther and echoes these sentiments, adding: "What doesn't Chadwick bring to the character? He wore the crown with dignity."

The video also includes behind the scene footage from the making of the blockbuster saga, as well as an extract from an interview with Boseman himself in which he discusses the importance of Black Panther and the superhero genre.

He says: "It's fun to watch just what it means to people. At times I would be in my head and be like, 'What is it - is it actually valuable in this climate?'

"And I have to say, yes, yes it is. Not because it makes people escape. I think when done right it gives people hope. I found that it means a lot."

The video was posted with the caption: "You will always be our King."

This comes after the tragic news was announced over the weekend that Boseman had died of cancer.

In a statement posted to his Twitter, his family revealed the actor had been diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016. He'd been battling with the illness for the last four years as it progressed to stage IV.

Following news of his death, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler shared his own tribute in which he talked about first meeting the star as well as the pain he is feeling as he tries to come to terms with the loss.

It reads in part: "I noticed then that Chad was an anomaly. He was calm. Assured. Constantly studying. But also, kind, comforting, had the warmest laugh in the world, and eyes that seen much beyond his years, but could still sparkle like a child seeing something for the first time.

"I haven't grieved a loss this acute before. I spent the last year preparing, imagining and writing words for him to say, that we weren't destined to see. It leaves me broken knowing that I won't be able to watch another close-up of him in the monitor again or walk up to him and ask for another take."
