Chadwick Boseman had a monumental impact on everyone who came into contact with him, from his fellow cast and crew to the fans young and old who enjoyed the films that he starred in.
Because of this, tributes from far and wide have been made to celebrate the one and only Black Panther, demonstrating just how much he inspired others through his many iconic roles. Marvel Studios released tribute art to honor Boseman, and the legacy that he leaves starring as Black Panther. Even Marvel properties disconnected from the MCU celebrated the actor, with Spider-Man: Miles Morales having a few tributes within the game.
Walt Disney executive Bob Iger announced that a "special tribute" to Chadwick Boseman would be featured as part of Black Panther on Disney+.
Viewers can now see the tribute for themselves, which can be seen when watching Black Panther on the streaming service...
Disney+ updated the Marvel Studios opening logo screen for Black Panther, which alters the sequence to feature images and footage of Chadwick Boseman.
Many of T'Challa's most iconic quotes are featured throughout this sequence. Just after the comic pages disappear, the following quote is shown:
In my culture, death is not the end. It's more of a stepping off point. You reach out with both hands and Bast and Sekhmet, they lead you into the green veld where... you can run forever.
After this images of Boseman are shown from his MCU appearances, such as one from Captain America: Civil War. Marvel Studios' tribute artworks to Boseman are also used here. More quotes from T'Challa are featured, including “We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers."
More images continue to be displayed, including artwork from Civil War and T'Challa embracing T'Chaka.
Before the Marvel Studios logo itself appears, new artwork of Chadwick Boseman is shown as he bears the Wakandan salute.
The sequence itself pulls from various scenes from MCU films that Chadwick Boseman starred in, in addition to behind-the-scenes footage of the late actor during the filming of Black Panther.
More footage is shown from Boseman's MCU appearances, including his iconic "I never freeze" scene and others of Boseman gleefully laughing on set.
The footage continues to Boseman's appearances beyond Black Panther, such as the incredible moment where T'Challa emerges from the portal with Shuri and Okoye in Avengers: Endgame.
Other close-ups of Boseman are then seen, also spanning his various appearances across the MCU.
Finally, the Marvel Studios logo is shown, surrounded in purple to signify the color of the ancestral plane.
Update: Marvel Studios has officially released the opening tribute to Boseman:
The release of this fanfare was on November 29, 2020, which would have been Boseman's 44th birthday. The tribute ultimately celebrates how impactful Chadwick Boseman has been to the MCU, in bringing so much to the role of T'Challa. It also demonstrates his impact off-camera too, with plenty of footage from behind-the-scenes showing that he truly was a king outside of the role as well. Marvel Studios has continued to honor Chadwick Boseman's legacy since his unfortunate passing, and this serves as another fitting tribute for the one and only Black Panther.
