Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman Earns Stan Lee’s Approval

Actor Chadwick Boseman earned acclaim for his performance as Black Panther in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, but now as he prepares to reprise the role in his solo film, he’s received the endorsement of the character’s co-creator.

Stan Lee posted a photo of himself with Boseman, accompanied by a tweet that reads, “In 1966 we brought Black Panther to the pages of Marvel… Now this talented young man brings him to the silver screen! You have my respect!”

It’s not just Lee who has his eyes on the upcoming film, as Marvel Studios has buzz for Black Panther at an all-time high. Generating more than 89 million views during its first 24 hours, the first teaser cemented a spot among the top three most-viewed Marvel trailers. Boseman and company were also one of the studio’s heavy hitters last month during Comic-Con International in San Diego, where a new trailer was debuted during the Hall H presentation, earning a standing ovation.
