A Tribute to Chadwick Boseman | Top Scenes in Black Panther

Devastating news shook the Internet when actor Chadwick Boseman's passing was announced on Friday (28 August) on his various social accounts. The actor, beloved by people for his character King T'Challa in the movie "Black Panther", passed away at 43 years old after losing his four-year battle with colon cancer. As a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, here are the 10 scenes that are both action-packed and memorable in "Black Panther".   1. Taking Nakia home. In this scene, T'Challa was still a prince and on a mission to bring his lover, Nakia back to Wakanda for his coronation. At the same time, they have rescued women and a boy who were kidnapped as well. This scene is mostly action-packed and we have the chance to see Boseman in action. 2. Wakanda. After arriving in Wakanda, T'Challa is welcomed by his Queen Mother, Queen Ramonda, and little sister, Princess Shuri. This heartwarming scene shows how much T'Challa is loved by his family. 3. Ritual combat.  During the coronation, T'Challa is challenged by M'Baku, the leader of the Jabari tribe, for the throne as king. Ritual combat is held and T'Challa defeated M'Baku despite having difficulties. This scene shows the strength of the Black Panther in combat.   4. New suit. This is by far the most memorable and funny moment of the film. In this scene, Princess Shuri is so excited to show King T'Challa her newly designed suit for him. During a test, the king was caught off-guard by the repelling forces in his second strike and was thrown off his feet. This left Princess Shuri laughing out loud as a result. The scene shows the love between siblings despite their royal titles. 5. Mission to take down Klaue. During his mission to bring Ulysses Klaue, a long term threat to the Wakandans, in South Korea, King T'Challa chases the man across Busan with the help of his sister and his female warriors. In this action-packed scene, we get to watch the Black Panther in action for the second time in the movie.   6. Challenge for the throne. Killmonger, King T'Challa's cousin, comes back for revenge after killing Klaue. He challenges for the throne and goes into ritual combat with King T'Challa. The heartbreaking moment is when T'Challa was thrown down the waterfall into the river below, and the people are forced to accept the new king. The fight truly kept the audiences at the edge of their seats. 7. Wrongdoings of the past. After consuming the heart-shaped herb, T'Challa went to a sort of spirit realm where he sees his deceased father and other ancestors. His father asked for him to be reunited with the family and stay but instead of accepting the offer, T'Challa cried out that what his father and his other ancestors did was wrong. "We let the fear of our discovery stop us from doing what is right." - King T'Challa. This scene brings out the courage and responsibility of a king that T'Challa has. And he deserves the respect from his elders to right those wrongs.    8. The final battle. T'Challa decides to continue the challenge for the throne by stopping Killmonger from giving away the resources of Wakanda to the outside world. With the help of his team, they managed to take down the aircraft that are trying to ship out the weapons. T'Challa had his final battle with his cousin at the train tracks. Killmonger was filled with hatred and vengeance that T'Challa had no choice but to impale him and end the fight. This action-packed scene shows the love of T'Challa for his family even when their actions are hurting others. 9. Sunset. After mentioning the beauty of Wakanda, T'Challa brings his cousin to watch the sunset. T'Challa suggests to heal his cousin in hopes of making it up to him. But the offer got denied and Killmonger took his last breath. This scene gives a sense of peace to both royals as the hatred and vengeance is now over.   10. Making Wakanda known. To help make the world a better place, King T'Challa formed the Wakandan International Outreach Centre at Oakland, where his father killed his uncle. He also attended a press conference at the United Nations to introduce Wakanda to the world. This meaningful moment shows us that King T'Challa kept his word about righting the wrongs of his ancestors and giving a helping hand to the world beyond Wakanda's borders.   May Chadwick Boseman rest in power. His contribution to the lives of people will be remembered.

All About the Black Panther | Get to Know Chadwick Boseman

On Friday, it is announced on his Twitter and Facebook accounts that actor Chadwick Boseman had passed away at 43 years old after bravely fighting colon cancer for four years. From the statement, it is revealed that the actor passed away in his home with his wife and family by his side. For those who do not know who is Chadwick Boseman, he is well-known for his character as T'Challa in the Marvel blockbuster movie "Black Panther". Here are 10 interesting facts about the actor that little know about. #1 He is of West African descent. Although Boseman was born in South Carolina, he learnt about his ancestry when he decided to take a DNA test. The test not only showed he has West African ancestry but also revealed that he belonged to specific ethnic groups. According to sources, his ancestors were from the Limba and Mende people of Sierra Leone, the Yoruba people of Nigeria, and the Jola people from Guinea-Bissau. #2 He likes his privacy. Despite being an actor since the early 2000s, little is known about Chadwick Boseman. This is because he is a reserved man who does not like to reveal his personal life to the public. And we all respect him for that. According to TheThings, "It's no one's business, really," says Boseman. "When you talk about that, you become a whole different type of celebrity. Your personal life bleeds into your professional life. I'm an actor, and you know me from who I play. You get a sense of who I am, but you don't know everything."   Photo source: Sky News#3 He has a big family. In an interview, the actor mentioned that he is from a very big family. "When my grandmother died, she left 115 grandkids and great-grandkids. That was just one side,' he says.   Photo source: borg #4 He was athletic in school. Even though he keeps his personal life in private, Chadwick Boseman still shares some bits now and then. According to Vanity Fair and MensVaritey, Boseman, like many high school boys his age, was an athlete who played baseball and basketball. "I played Little League baseball, but I also played basketball," the actor shared during an interview with Vanity Fair. "Basketball was my primary sport. When you play basketball seriously, a lot of times, through the summer season, you continue playing. So that replaced me playing baseball. But I’ve always been an athlete and continued to do additional athletic activities."   Photo source: CNBC#5 He has a Bachelors in Directing. Before proceeding an acting career, Boseman initially wanted to be a writer and director instead. He decided to take acting courses only to better understand the actors. “I really only started acting because I wanted to know what the actors were doing, how to communicate with the actors," he said according to The Washington Post.    Photo source: TheIndianExpress#6 He actually studied in two universities. According to resources, Chadwick Boseman attended Howard University in Washington D.C. and the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England. It is also confirmed by the actor himself in an interview. "And then I realized I’m supposed to do all of it. I studied. I studied at Howard. I studied at Oxford," Boseman said as reported by The Washington Post.   Photo source: CoS#7 He was not a fan of comics. Growing up, Chadwick Boseman was unlike other kids who loved to read comic books. Thus it may seem funny that a comic book character is now his most well-known role. But in reality, although he is not a big fan of comics, he claimed that he prayed to be Black Panther before he was cast as the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is reported that after being cast in Captain America: Civil War as the Black Panther, the actor read as many comics as possible to learn more about his character role and backstory, according to BoomsBeat. #8 He did not have to audition for Black Panther. Before accepting the role as the Black Panther, Boseman's acting career was relatively successful. Looking at his previous performances in "Get On Up" and "42", the actor was offered the role over the phone by Marvel Universe President Kevin Feige. “I think it was 24 hours between saying his name in a creative story meeting and talking to his agent and getting on a phone with him and offering him the role of Black Panther, which he accepted,” Feige shared to Variety, according to International Business Times.   Photo source: E!News#9 He trained in martial arts. Nobody suddenly looks like a superhero overnight, and Chadwick Boseman was no exception. To get into shape for the role of Black Panther, the actor had to train hard. He reportedly trained fives days per week with each training lasting about an hour, as reported by TheThings.  He also studied various martial arts including Muay Thai, Capoeira and Filipino martial arts. The trainer working with the actor decided that is was necessary to teach Boseman to fight in different ways because T'Challa was supposed to be a master of many, who could adapt to practically any kind of fight, reported the Men's Journal. #10 He is proud to play T'Challa, King of Wakanda. As the very first stand-alone black superhero of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chadwick Boseman was extremely proud to portray the Black Panther, according to TheThings. Growing up in South Carolina, the actor is no stranger to seeing discrimination. After overcoming those obstacles and landing the role of the T'Challa, Boseman realises the importance of this character to the community. He was also glad to be a part of the first superhero movie with a predominantly black cast.
