Chadwick Boseman's sudden demise was a shocker for everyone. The actor who had been suffering from cancer for a really long time succumbed to death in August 2020. The actor would have celebrated his 44th birthday today and we are sure all his fans are missing the king on this special occasion.

Chadwick Boseman's character T'Challa, the newly crowned king of Wakanda, was an immediate hit amongst the fans and the team at Disney believed that it was the perfect kind of tribute to give to the late actor. Disney+ has updated its Marvel Studios Logo with glimpses of his character from Black Panther in his honour.
The new logo is a commemorative update of the logo that has been used by Marvel Studios since 2016. Keeping the classic "flipbook" opening, one can see concept art images and extracts from the Black Panther script. Earlier, the standard intro had the footage of superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe fill the letterforms but this tribute is dedicated uniquely and solely to Boseman. The footage is taken from his roles in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

He wrote, "To all fans of #BlackPanther: watch the film on #DisneyPlus late tonight, for a special tribute to someone that was and will always be near and dear to our hearts."
The Disney-owned studio had also dedicated a similar eulogy to Marvel Comics visionary Stan Lee.
