MCU Fans Remember Chadwick Boseman On Third Anniversary Of Black Panther’s Release

Latest Movie News

Three years ago today, a cultural behemoth exploded onto the scene when Black Panther premiered in theaters around the world. The first feature-length visit to Wakanda was much more than a Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster, it was a seismic cultural event that played a huge part in shifting the landscape of how Hollywood approached its biggest movies.

Not only did it enjoy incredible success at the box office, where a global haul of over $1.3 billion saw it comfortably become the highest-grossing installment in the MCU that isn’t an Avengers epic, but it still ranks as the twelfth biggest commercial hit in the history of cinema. If that wasn’t enough, it then went on to become the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, leaving behind a monumental legacy.

Production on the sequel is set to begin in July, but leading man Chadwick Boseman is tragically no longer with us having passed away last summer following a four-year battle with colon cancer. To mark the third anniversary of Black Panther‘s release, fans have been flooding social media with tributes today, and you can check some of them out below.

As well as the box office dollars and awards season recognition, Black Panther is also the top-rated entry in the MCU in terms of the critical consensus, as it holds a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Chadwick Boseman is sadly no longer around to reprise his career-defining and iconic role as T’Challa, but his presence will loom large over the sequel and even larger over the industry as a whole thanks to the phenomenal success and lofty reputation enjoyed by Ryan Coogler’s game-changing comic book adaptation.
