The late actor was honored Sunday at the MTV Movie & TV Awards by his fellow Marvel stars Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle.
During the show, Boseman who played T’Challa/Black Panther in the superhero franchise, was given the “Hero for the Ages” award.
Downey (who played Iron Man) stated, “The second you first saw him on screen or had the opportunity to meet him in person, his energy and intensity was undeniable. There was something different and special about Chadwick Boseman.”
“Mr. Boseman truly embodied what it meant to be a superhero. His impact as a groundbreaking leading man, as an icon on screen – it won’t be quantified by the box office records he broke, but by the legions of fans who will celebrate him for many years to come,” Downey continued. “His list of selfless and inspirational acts and deeds is too long to recount here. Consistently showing up during trial and triumph for family, friends and fans alike, some of whom were battling the same invisible enemy.”
Boseman passed on in August after a long, private fight with colon cancer. He was only 43 years of age.
“Each time he stepped on the set, he inspired and influenced everyone there. And with every role, he created a new legion of fans. He had an incredible power to unify people in their love for his work and their respect for him as a person. The way he lived his life united people behind a higher purpose and that will be his legacy,” Cheadle (who played War Machine) said.
Boseman likewise got an after death acting award nomination at the Gotham Awards for his exhibition in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of August Wilson’s 1982 play “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”
