    Disney+ Added A Tribute To Chadwick Boseman At The Beginning Of "Black Panther"

    "A special tribute to someone that was and will always be near and dear to our hearts."

    Chadwick Boseman would have turned 44 years old today, and the world continues to mourn the late Black Panther actor who died from colon cancer earlier this year.

    Fans and celebrities paid tribute to Chadwick's legacy on social media today — and so did The Walt Disney Company's executive chair Bob Iger, who announced that a special tribute to Chadwick would be added to Black Panther on Disney+ this evening.

    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.

    For those who don't subscribe to Disney+, however, Marvel has made the tribute available for all to watch through their Twitter account.

    This isn't the first time Marvel and Disney have honored an MCU icon like this. For Captain Marvel, the Marvel Studios title card paid tribute to legendary comic book writer Stan Lee after his death in 2018.
