Since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman in August, millions have been leaving tributes for the actor. But now, one fan has spotted another amazing tribute after noticing a street named after him in the game version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Have a look for yourselves…
And no one can seem to get over the death of the late actor back in late August.
While appearing in different movies, we had no idea that the late actor was battling colon cancer.
And the most recent one was quite hard to spot…
Including the legendary movie that is Black Panther.
Black Pather completely revolutionized the film industry.
Back in 2018, Black Panther became the talk of the town as it hit all major big-screens.
Marvel’s superhero movie brought cultural importance to the forefront of a storyline while still maintaining the classic “hero vs villain” trope.
With black talent spread across the entire cast and production, Black Panther became more than just a social talking point. It became an artistic celebration of black culture.
The genre typically upholds traditional superhero visuals, as seen with Superman, Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, and Batman, just to name a select few…
But Black Panther saw a whole new story brought to life.
A culture that was once seen as other, brought about celebration in a way that actually brought audiences together to share their love for the genre.
In such a strong line-up of actors and actresses, we saw the fusion of old and new black actors including Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright.
The Guardian described him as a man who is helping to “[open] up people’s minds.”
Even though Boseman made an appearance in Captain America: Civil War prior to this blockbuster, no one really acknowledged the talent and drive behind his character.
He explained how most of it was “brought on himself.”
“It’s not like it’s actually coming from outside. I think we all placed that pressure on ourselves with this cos we knew what the opportunity was. Everyone knew this was something that had not been done before.”
But it was more than just mental pressure, he was also struggling with his own battles as we found out last week.
The first video to raise the most concern was when the star was celebrating Major League Baseball’s “Jackie Robinson Day” with his fans, people flocked to social media platforms to express their concerns. The video has since been deleted from his actual Instagram.
He was going through severe health problems, and that’s why his fans were so concerned about his appearance.
And it’s no wonder why murals are popping up all over the place in order to honor him.
Disneyland even revealed a powerful mural dedicated to the Black Panther star.
Created by Nikkolas Smith, it shows a young boy in a hospital gown and Marvel mask standing next to Chadwick Boseman, while both of them are doing the “Wakanda Forever” sign.
“My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney. It is a full-circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children’s Hospital project and the Avengers Campus. To millions of kids, T’Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman. I’m so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick’s life and purpose in this way.
I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist.”
More recently fans have spotted a tribute in the game version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The tribute was first spotted by Reddit user RollieDell.
“42nd Street becomes Boseman Way between 1st and 3rd Street. Mr. Boseman’s big breakout role was in the film, 42,” they wrote.
“I forgot to snap a picture to check if it was an Easter egg or a real street. Then, I couldn’t remember where I saw it so I headed to Chadwick’s IMDb for clues. When I remembered his role in 42, I just searched 42nd street and there it was.”
