Marvel Studios, ABC Entertainment, and ABC News have announced they will air a special presentation of Black Panther commercial-free on Sunday night followed by a special on the life of Chadwick Boseman.
The blockbuster Marvel film will air at 8 p.m. EST.
“Chadwick Boseman – A Tribute for a King,” will air from 10:20-11:00 p.m. this evening, a special exec produced by Steven Baker.
The ABC News special will celebrate Boseman’s storied life, legacy and career, and the cultural imprint he made on- and off-screen. It will feature tributes that have poured in from celebrities, political figures and fans across the world, special words from those who starred alongside him and knew Boseman best, and shine a light on the medical condition he privately battled.
In Black Panther, Boseman plays T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
I will be tuned in. How about you?
