Marvel Unveils New “Black Panther” Intro Honoring Chadwick Boseman

Marvel Studios revealed a brand new intro for Black Panther yesterday. The new look honors the late, great Chadwick Boseman, who passed away this August at just 43 years old. The reveal, which Marvel shared on Twitter, came on November 29, which would have been Boseman’s 44th birthday.

The new intro reworks the classic Marvel opening of animated images from the comics that highlights Marvel’s deep bench of superheroes. The new introduction focuses solely on Boseman’s T’Challa, and Boseman himself, showing the performer both in the role that made him a global superstar, and behind-the-scenes, being the magnanimous, beloved individual he was. We see Boseman in the role through four films—Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. You’ll also note the color palette shifts from the traditional orange/yellow to lush purple. It’s a simple, elegant, and ultimately moving tribute to a greater performer and person.

Black Panther is now available to stream on Disney+.
