ABC to Air Commercial-Free ‘Blank Panther’ and Chadwick Boseman Special Tonight


As the world still reels from Chadwick Boseman’s passing, many tributes have become to form. On Disney+, there is a feature on the carousel that gives you a chance to watch Boseman’s work and remember his legacy. Tonight, ABC will be airing a commercial-free version of Black Panther followed by a News Special dedicated to his life and legacy.

Black Panther, which aired in theaters in 2018, was the Marvel film that fans had been waiting for. The film was a major step forward for the studio for representation. In the past, Boseman has spoken to how important the representation of the film was and how honored he was to be apart of it. In another monumental moment, Black Panther was the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture.

You can catch Black Panther on ABC tonight at 8 PM. The news special will immediately follow the showing of the film, so it is currently set to air from 10:20-11:00 PM. We cannot wait to see the tribute which is titled Chadwick Boseman – A Tribute for a King. We are sure that it is going to be a moving and beautiful tribute that it fit for the King.

Will you be watching this special tonight? If you do, share your thoughts about it with us on Twitter and Facebook.
