Chadwick Boseman became a household name after the release of 'Black Panther'. The iconic Marvel movie spawned a veritable cultural movement, and has broken sales records in many countries, grossing more than $1.2bn worldwide.
Unsurprisingly, Chadwick Boseman was launched into international superstardom. Here he is addressing new graduates of Howard University at its 150th commencement.

An alumnus of the HBCU himself, Chadwick Boseman gave a stirring speech - and didn't forget to make the Wakanda Forever salute to the delight of the crowd.
Some people thought they noticed his enthusiasm dwindle every time he performed the salute.
Of course, this made for some hilarious tweets.

The year is 2045. Chadwick Boseman hasn’t played Black Panther for years. A fan asks him to do the Wakanda forever pose for a photo for the millionth time. Enough is enough. He drop kicks the fan and is finally free.— Dan🐝 (@DanHopkins97) May 13, 2018
With plans of a sequel and rumors of a spin-off, it seems Chadwick Boseman will be associated with 'Black Panther' for a long time yet!
