The Walt Disney Co. and Marvel Studios will pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman tonight with a special commercial-free airing of “Black Panther” on ABC, followed by a special examining the actor’s life and work.
Robin Roberts, the co-anchor of “Good Morning America,” will host the ABC News special “Chadwick Boseman — A Tribute for a King.”
The movie is set to air without interruption on ABC from 8 p.m.-10:20 p.m. The rest of the 10 p.m. hour of primetime will be filled by “Chadwick Boseman — A Tribute for a King,” produced by ABC News. ABC News said the special will “celebrate Boseman’s storied life, legacy and career, and the cultural imprint he made on- and off-screen. It will feature tributes that have poured in from celebrities, political figures and fans across the world, special words from those who starred alongside him and knew Boseman best, and shine a light on the medical condition he privately battled.”
I always took a lot of pride in saying that. I still will but its gonna sting a little now.
I was so shocked when reading about it earlier. The strength it must of taken to keep it hidden from the public and continue working.
Ryan Coogler, director of Black Panther, on Chadwick Boseman
