Since then, Black Panther became an instant smash and fan favorite! Seeing Boseman along with his fellow Avengers cast mates grow in the MCU and eventually move on to have his own Black Panther film was incredible! Fans resonated with the story of T’Challa and his journey to becoming the Black Panther superhero. The story was so important to tell and even director Ryan Coogler knew that Boseman was going to become a household name saying:

“I finally met Chad in person in early 2016, once I signed onto the film…. I noticed then that Chad was an anomaly. He was calm. Assured. Constantly studying. But also kind, comforting, had the warmest laugh in the world, and eyes that seen much beyond his years, but could still sparkle like a child seeing something for the first time.”
