Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman just shared a behind-the-scenes image of himself wearing a robe based on Muhammad Ali’s, tagged with a quote from the legendary boxer himself.

Since Black Panther has been in production at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia since the end of last January, it appears likely that Boseman has filmed a few scenes from another ongoing production as well – Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, which is currently filming in the same location. With that in mind, perhaps deciding to “count the days” isn’t exactly a conventional thing to do considering that Boseman will be shooting scenes for two to three Marvel movies at the same time, but perhaps Ali’s assessment that one should always “make the days count” will always be on the table. If Boseman gives it his all, it’s entirely possible that the Black Panther could become a cultural icon in the same way that Ali is.
Black Panther will open on February 16, 2018. It is directed by Ryan Coogler and will feature a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T’Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Kilmonger, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M’Baku (Man-Ape). In addition, Letitia Wright, Phylicia Rashad, and Atandwa Kani are also cast in unspecified roles.
7 Reasons To Be Excited For ‘Black Panther’
Black Panther is coming back, and trust me when I say his movie will be worth seeing.
I know it’s hard to get excited when there are so many superhero movies coming out every year, but Black Panther is a character that deserves a shot on the big screen. Not only was he the first black superhero, he naturally serves as an extension to the rest of the MCU. Finally we’re not focusing on someone from New York City, T’Challa was born and raised in Wakanda, a whole different jungle compared to NYC.
Black Panther is as smart as Mr. Fantastic and as fierce a fighter as Batman. Unlike most of the marvel characters who are defined by one trait, Iron Man as dependent on tech or Cap as overly patriotic, Black Panther is a multi-faceted character.
I almost gave this list 8 reasons just because I’m excited to see what Stan Lee’s cameo is gonna be. Fingers crossed for a stereotypical tourist on safari.
