Today’s tribute is just the latest one Marvel Studios has shared for the memory of the late actor. A few months ago, they released a touching behind-the-scenes video compilation from Black Panther’s movie appearances. More recently, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales included a tribute that paid respects to Boseman and his legacy in the post-credits. Moreover, the players’ sharp eyes spotted that the 42nd Street in the game was called ‘Boseman Way,’ a reference to the fact that the actor’s breakout role was in 2013’s 42.
In the past, Marvel Studios modified its production logo following Stan Lee’s death. Marvel’s father passed away a few weeks before the debut of 2019’s Captain Marvel, and the movie still has the touching tribute on Disney+.
