Ahead of the ‘Black Panther’ premiere, it was brothers Joe and Anthony Russo who brought Chadwick Boseman to the MCU in ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Years later, they returned to work with him on “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Ultimatum”.
During their participation in CCXP Worlds, the filmmakers paid tribute to the star, who died on August 28, victim of cancer.
“He had incredible integrity. He was a very thoughtful, artistic and elegant human being. It was just a pleasure to be with him, ”Joe told Collider.
He went on to say that Boseman’s work was more human than artistic:
“His professionalism was very inspiring. I don’t think he wanted his illness to become a bigger problem than his natural talent. He has succeeded in making “Black Panther” a representative humanitarian legacy and it is one of the bravest things we have ever seen. It wasn’t just a movie for Chad. He didn’t just play, he gave a voice to minorities.
Recalling that Boseman’s next work will be the already acclaimed “ The Supreme Voice of the Blues, ” which hits Netflix on December 18.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Oscar winner Viola Davis revealed that Boseman will be remembered as a hero.
“I think he will be remembered as a hero. There is a section of the public that associates him with Black Panther. No. I associate it with its authenticity, especially in the midst of a profession that sometimes drains you. He was someone who led a bigger life than anyone else. And I believe that your heritage, your work, your integrity will influence future generations ”.
Directed by George C. Wolfe, the biopic is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play written by August Wilson in 1982.
