Bob Iger Teases Black Panther Tribute on Disney+ Tonight
For fans of Marvel’s Black Panther, its worth noting that the film is one of the many incredible Marvel movies you’ll find on Disney+, Disney’s official streaming network.
Earlier today, former Disney head Bob Iger took to twitter to announce that the film would also include some added features starting “late” tonight. Take a look at his tweet below:

Though iger keeps it intentionally vague, we can only guess that it is to pay tribute to the incredible Chadwick Boseman who passed away this past August after a three year battle with colon cancer. The news shocked the world and at the time, Disney-owned ABC did run a special screening of Black Panther complete with a touching tribute to Boseman. You can find the tweet announcing the tribute below:
Tonight, ABC will celebrate the legacy of Chadwick Boseman with a special presentation of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther followed by the ABC News Special: Chadwick Boseman – A Tribute for a King. It all starts tonight at 8/7c on ABC. pic.twitter.com/LjtN9bTwzx

We suspect, that Disney has made the decision to start airing the tribute as part of the Black Panther film and we are here for it. Boseman, was an incredible talent and brought such strength and dignity to the role of Black Panther that it is only fitting that fans and those seeing Black Panther for the first time, have a way to remember the life and work of Boseman.
So be sure to stream Black Panther this weekend to see if our predictions are right. This is also a story that we’ll continue to follow closely here at MickeyBlog so keep following along with us for further news and updates.
