Chadwick Boseman Crying Discussing Impact of Black Panther

Chadwick Boseman Cried Talking About Black Panther, and BRB, There's Something in My Eye

Early reactions to and reviews of Marvel's Black Panther have been overwhelmingly positive thus far, and part of the reason so many fans — especially people of color — have been eager to see the film is the fact that the movie features an all-black cast and highlights the importance of representation on the big screen.

Chadwick Boseman, who plays the feline-suited superhero in the movie, sat down with the rest of his castmates for a town hall special with SiriusXM recently and got emotional while discussing the impact of the film on the younger generation. The 41-year-old actor opened up about two cancer-stricken patients who were excited about seeing the movie come to life. "Their parents said, 'They're trying to hold on till this movie comes,'" he shared.

Chadwick recalled how hearing their stories motivated him to work even harder to make sure Black Panther was special. He also broke down when revealing the two boys had passed away before seeing the film. "It means a lot," he said, fighting through tears. Grab a tissue and watch the emotional interview above.
