If you haven’t heard of the new Disney+ series, you might want to start tuning in. Disney takes us into an imaginary world’s of ‘What If’s’ from Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it and turning it upside and flipping it around. Chadwick Boseman aka Black Panther led this week’s charge.  Last week August 11th was worldwide premiere, and it didn’t disappoint with Captain Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter Steve’s longtime girlfriend as the first avenger.


This week’s episode was special featuring the Black Panther and the last role Marvel has with Chadwick Boseman. Episode 2 takes us to a world what if black panther was star lord and it was brilliant. T’challa as a young boy wondered off from Wakanda and was picked up by Yondu’s spaceship where he became a space pirate right along with Yondu. Black Panther/Star Lord teams up with Yondu’s henchmen and even Thanos to face Benicio Del Toro’s character as The Collector.

The late Chadwick Boseman passed away last August 28, 2020, almost a year since his passing and his influence still lives strong throughout all of us so much that inspiring and making fans emotional all around the world just hearing his voice still. Twitter User @FandomCrunch says, “Currently bawling my eyes out #Tchalla #WhatIf”.

A.C Bradley, the writer and director of ‘What If had this to say about Chadwick’s last role in the MCU. “Chadwick Boseman understood the importance of Black Panther. He understood how important it is that young people see a Black man standing shoulder to shoulder with Captain America and Thor Odinson, so they know a Black man saves the world just the same as anyone else.”


The episode features many returning cast mates from the MCU such as Michael Rooker as Yondu Karen Gilan as Nebula and even Samuel Jackson as Nick fury (per IMDb).
