Black Panther’s Disney+ Marvel Intro Remade to Honor Chadwick Boseman

Black Panther’s Marvel Studios intro on Disney+ has been remade to honor the late Chadwick Boseman on what would have been his 44th birthday.

Boseman was born on November 29, 1976, and to help celebrate the star who passed away earlier this year from cancer, Disney+ has created a new Marvel Studios intro for the film that features different scenes of Boseman as Black Panther.

Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner/Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, also took the time to celebrate Boseman by sharing a behind-the-scenes look at a birthday celebration for the Black Panther star with many other MCU characters around him in costume.

“Thinking of your passion, love, and your light today, @ChadwickBoseman. Ruffalo wrote. “Happy Birthday. Wishing we could time travel back to this moment.”

These are two examples of the many ways those around the world have celebrated the life of Boseman, including an ABC News special on Disney+ called Chadwick Boseman: A Tribute for a King – A Special Edition of 20/20 that looks back at his life, legacy, career, and the cultural imprint he made on and off-screen.

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler also released a touching statement to the star of his film, and other tributes have been found in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS5.
