*In honor of what would’ve been Chadwick Boseman’s 44th birthday, Disney Plus redesigned the Marvel logo introduction to “Black Panther” on Nov. 29. Boseman, who played T’Challa/Black Panther, died on Aug. 28 following a four-year battle with colon cancer.
Walt Disney executive Bob Iger announced the special tribute via Twitter, writing Saturday: “To all fans of #BlackPanther: watch the film on #DisneyPlus late tonight, for a special tribute to someone that was and will always be near and dear to our hearts.”
The updated intro keeps the classic Marvel page-turning opening before showing concept art and images from “Black Panther.” The tribute shows footage from Boseman’s appearances in “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
In addition to the images, there are quotes by T’Challa including the famous line from when his character addresses the UN Assembly: “In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers.”
Boseman is also shown behind-the-scenes. As the camera pulls back for the Marvel Studios logo, Boseman gives his “Wakanda Forever” salute.
Earlier this year, it was announced that “Black Panther 2” will be released on May 6, 2022.
