BLACK PANTHER Star Chadwick Boseman Wins Posthumous Emmy For His Performance In WHAT IF...?

During last night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, the late Chadwick Boseman was awarded a posthumous Emmy for his performance as T'Challa in the first season of What If...? on Disney+.

Wakanda Forever.

The loss of Chadwick Boseman shocked the world, especially as the actor had kept his lengthy battle with cancer a secret. Perhaps best known for playing T'Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he left an indelible mark on that franchise with phenomenal performances in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, and the last two Avengers movies.

One of his final roles, however, was Disney+'s animated What If...? Returning as T'Challa in an episode that saw the Wakandan become Star-Lord in place of Peter Quill, Boseman delivered another fantastic take on a character he's made entirely his own. 

Now, that's been recognised by the Emmys. Last night, Boseman was awarded the Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his role as Star-Lord T'Challa in What If...?, and we'd say it was well-deserved. 

It's a real tragedy that he wasn't here to accept that and to continue playing the character moving forward. This Star-Lord Variant was such a hit with fans, we can't help but think there's a chance the hero would have eventually joined Hayley Atwell's Captain Carter by appearing in live-action.

"Boseman was clearly having an absolute blast playing this version of the hero," we said in our review of the episode, "and his performance is nothing short of perfect. Boseman takes us along for this ride in a way that will remind you just what a special talent he was."

What If...? will return to Disney+ for a second season next year, while Marvel Zombies (which spins out of the events of season 1) is also on the way. Boseman only recorded material for the show's first batch of episodes, so we sadly won't be treated to any future performances from the late actor.
