In news we can surely all get behind, it's been announced today that Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman will receive a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year. 

The actor, also known for his work in movies like Da 5 Bloods, 21 Bridges, and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, died in 2020 after a lengthy battle with cancer. His illness was kept private until his death in August of that year, leaving the actor's fans shocked he'd seemingly passed so suddenly. 

We've since learned he never stopped fighting, of course, even shooting a number of Marvel movies while fighting the disease. His final MCU performance was as Star-Lord in Disney+'s What If...?

Boseman actually received a posthumous Emmy for "Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance" for his work in that show. As for his star on the Walk of Fame, he's going to be part of the motion picture category. 

Among those joining him will be Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Pine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Christina Ricci, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, and Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri.

In related news, it's also been confirmed that, after nearly five decades in the entertainment industry, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Angela Bassett will be honoured with her first Academy Award after her name was added to the Academy's list of Governors Awards recipients.

She'll be joined by fellow honorary winners Mel Brooks and Carol Littleton. Bassett was actually nominated for "Best Supporting Actress" at this year's ceremony for her work in the Marvel Studios sequel but somehow lost out to Jamie Lee Curtis for Everything Everywhere All at Once.

No date has currently been revealed as to when Boseman's Walk of Fame star will be revealed, but we'll be sure to keep you updated.

So the Academy recognized they messed up and are giving her the honorary award immediately after not giving her the actual award.

@SATW42 - Yeah. Jamie Lee Curtis is a legend, but her role in EEAAO wasn't Oscar worthy. Angela was snubbed.
DarthAlgar - 6/27/2023, 10:29 AM
@SATW42 - I'm pretty sure it's just to shut people up.
LukeCage2155 - 6/27/2023, 12:57 PM
@comicfan100 - Thank you.

@SATW42 - Hong Chau and Stephanie Hsu were my picks for that category. It was a tremendous group of women.

Look, I don't know how this works exactly but I've been seeing Walk of Fame ceremonies since I was a kid. Many inductees. How much freaking sidewalk is there? Seems like they'd run out of room at some point. I never been to LA in real life, how long does it stretch lol
SATW42 - 6/27/2023, 10:33 AM
@DarthOmega - just over 2700 stars over a 1.3 mile stretch. here's the directory
Origame - 6/27/2023, 10:27 AM
I approve. Well deserved.

Also, #recasttchalla
GhostDog - 6/27/2023, 10:30 AM
They haven’t ran out of sidewalk lol.

Will always be a shame, the legendary performances we will never see with Chadwick gone.
Drace24 - 6/27/2023, 10:51 AM
@GhostDog - They can always get rid of Trump's, lol. Not like he ever deserved it anyway.
SATW42 - 6/27/2023, 11:55 AM
@Drace24 - it's been destroyed I think 4 times. At some point you'd think the costs of repairs would add up to be more than the cost of refunding Donald his money for paying for it.
Drace24 - 6/27/2023, 12:21 PM
@SATW42 - It's really satisfying to spit on it. ;)
DarthAlgar - 6/27/2023, 10:31 AM
Good for Chadwick. He deserves it.
comicfan100 - 6/27/2023, 10:33 AM
Love this.
DocSpock - 6/27/2023, 10:52 AM

Well deserved.

I wonder what comes next in the BP movies?

I think through some kind of kang/variant/time travel nonsense the little boy will be grown up after Kang Dynasty. I wonder who would play that role. That will be some big shoes to fill.

FireandBlood - 6/27/2023, 10:56 AM
@DocSpock - Damson Idris

@PlusUltra -

Good candidate. When I brought this up before, some idiot actually threw Donald Glover at me.

comicfan100 - 6/27/2023, 2:00 PM
@DocSpock @PlusUltra - I still think Aldis Hodge would make the best T'Challa
DocSpock - 6/27/2023, 4:54 PM
@comicfan100 -

I would be good with that. I like him.

They might think he's too old though. Or they might think that the 12 people who saw him as Hawkman in Black Adam might get confused.

comicfan100 - 6/27/2023, 5:01 PM
@DocSpock - To be fair, Chadwick was pushing 40 when he was cast.
DocSpock - 6/27/2023, 5:03 PM
@comicfan100 -

I know. In a sad way, that may cause them to wanna grab someone in their 20s for this.

StSteven - 6/27/2023, 8:11 PM
@DocSpock - Yeah, probably. I think what's probably going to happen is that they're going to take a break from BP/Wakanda solo movies for a while and let T'Challa Jr. grow up, while Shuri is the BP for the upcoming crossover movies. Then, once we get past all the Multiversal stuff she'll probably get a solo BP movie, by which time she will have matured quite a bit into the role as BP. Then most likely in the following movie we'll see her handing the BP mantle over to T'Challa Jr. (who will be in his early-mid 20's by that point) while she takes the role of queen. Which all makes sense to me chronologically. Just as long as they don't try to make T'Challa Jr. BP too soon. College age/post-college age BP is fine with me, but I think that angsty teen T'Challa would get pretty annoying pretty quickly.
DocSpock - 6/27/2023, 9:05 PM
@StSteven -

That's pretty logical.

I just wonder if they can resist the big box office the BP movies generate.

StSteven - 6/27/2023, 9:43 PM
@DocSpock - That's a good point. I think (hope) that Marvel is going to have so many other projects coming out after the MS that the fans will be looking forward to (especially the X-Men related ones) that they won't feel like they need to fall back on their traditionally more popular properties (like BP) and let them breathe for a while. Plus, if they do some well executed action/character scenes with Shuri as BP for the upcoming crossover events then that will just make fans excited to see more of it whenever they roll out the next BP movies. Kinda like when we saw Spidey in "CA:CW" everyone immediately wanted more of him (granted the differences being that (1) he's Spider-Man, and (2) he's new to the MCU. Still some badassery from Shuri and maybe even a glimpse of T'Challa Jr. getting older and training in the upcoming crossovers could be enough to get the fans excited for the next chapter of BP.

That's good for his family and his memory but getting a star on the Walk of Fame is actually not as huge an honor as we once thought. I started doing this research after Adam Sandler got his star. I was curious.
It requires being selected but...

After doing some research, here are the criteria for getting a star on the Walk of Fame.

"The criteria for receiving a star consists of the following: professional achievement, longevity in the category of five years or more, contributions to the community and the guarantee that the celebrity will attend the dedication ceremony if selected."

"Posthumous awards require a two-year waiting period after death."
But only one posthumous star is chosen every year.

Then someone has to nominate you to get one. "Anyone, including a fan, can nominate a celebrity as long as the celebrity or his/her management is in agreement with the nomination." So a family member can nominate someone.

Once they do the Walk of Fame committee has to approve it.
Then the Hollywood Chamber of commerce has to approve it.

And here's the rub and why they are approved so easily....

The artist or the artist's family has to pay $75,000 after they are selected.

Ver sad. It's always horrible when someone dies so young. I hope his family is doing well.

The man stole the show in Ma Rainey's.

Every time I see news regarding Chadwick Bozeman it's so bittersweet and I can't help but relive the shock of waking up and reading about his passing that morning nearly three years ago. On the one hand, the articles are always so respectful of him and always revolve around his legacy being celebrated in some way, but on the other hand it always serves as a reminder of how young he was and the future he should have had.

He absolutely deserves this honour. It's just so sad he's not around anymore to take part in it in person.
CoHost - 6/27/2023, 3:34 PM
Absolutely deserved. I wish Heath Ledger would receive one, too.
ANewPope - 6/27/2023, 4:11 PM
Forever one of the greats.

Rest In Power, King.🙏🏾✊🏾
RitoRevolto - 6/27/2023, 5:33 PM
Great. It's beyond deserved.
SonOfAGif - 6/27/2023, 10:04 PM
I wonder why other types of roles Chadwick would have been cast for had he still been around today?
