Disney Plus has updated the introduction of the Marvel logo to “Black Panther” in honor of what would have been Chadwick Boseman’s 44th birthday.
Disney Plus redesigned the Marvel logo intro to “Black Panther” to honor Boseman on November 29. Boseman, who played T’Challa / Black Panther, died on August 28 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
Walt Disney executive Bob Iger announced via Twitter that a special tribute to Boseman will be featured as part of “Black Panther” on Disney Plus. He wrote: “To all #BlackPanther fans: watch the movie on #DisneyLater tonight, for a special tribute to someone who was and always will be near and dear to our hearts.”

The updated intro retains the classic Marvel page-turning opening before showing off concept art and ‘Black Panther’ footage.
The tribute shows footage of Boseman’s appearances in “Captain America: Civil War”, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”.
In addition to the pictures, there are quotes from T’Challa, including the famous line from when his character addresses the United Nations Assembly: “In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the madmen are building barriers.
The images are reminiscent of Boseman’s legacy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Boseman is also shown behind the scenes. As the camera pulls back for the Marvel Studios logo, Boseman greets “Wakanda Forever.”
Earlier this year, it was announced that “Black Panther 2” will be released on May 6, 2022.
