Fortnite honors Chadwick Boseman with Black Panther statue!!

What’s going on J1 Fans!

Chadwick Boseman’s untimely death has left a superhero sized hole in the hearts of comic book fans and movies goers alike. While Hollywood has been honoring him with tributes, his impact in the gaming world is also being remembered. Fortnite, known for it many comic book crossovers, is paying tribute to the beloved actor with a Black Panther statue in the game. The stone carved of this majestic animal can be found keeping watch over the land just west of the Misty Meadows area. If players approach the statue, they can hear music inspired by the Black Panther film.

However, the Black Panther sculpt was not erected in Fortnite due to Boseman’s passing. This has been planned since Season Three so its inclusion is just purely coincidental. Even so, this shows just how much the actor and his amazing talent means to so many people
