Chadwick Boseman gets tribute statue in Fortnite
Fortnite has honoured Chadwick Boseman with a new in-game Black Panther statue.
The monument is called Panther’s Prowl, and can be seen next to Misty Meadows. It is thought that a new Black Panther skin will also land in-game very soon.
This tribute to Boseman is part of Fortnite’s Marvel Nexus crossover.
Epic Games confirmed that the statue would appear in the game at some point in the season, it is thought that its appearance was brought up as tribute to the late star.
Boseman died on August 28, after a four-year battle with colon cancer. Several Marvel stars have paid tribute to the actor.
Now from virtual statues to real ones; a petition wants to replace a Confederate memorial with a statue of Chadwick Boseman. You can read the full story here.
