As Avengers: Infinity War is presently hot, fans are still in love with Black Panther, especially the Wakanda salute. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman. Boseman alongside other Avengers: Infinity War stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Josh Brolin (Thanos), and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) on Jimmy Kimmel Live, was asked if he gets asked to do the Wakanda Forever Salute a lot since Black Panther movie release. He said:
“You know what the funny thing is…if I don’t want to do it I have to not leave the house, pretty much,” Boseman said. “I’ve been chased in cars, I’ve actually done the scene from Coming To America where he goes to the bathroom and people are bowing to him so that one’s happened.”
When asked if the constant saluting slows him down at the airport Boseman said: “No, it actually speeds things up”.
“It’s just this tremendous opportunity,” Boseman told CNET, “not just for me but for all of us really to get out of our boxes. It’s not just black people getting out of their boxes. Everybody is excited about the opportunity to do something that we should have already done. People are excited about seeing new stuff, but I think they’re extra excited about seeing stuff they should have seen already.”
“You don’t know what you’re missing if you haven’t experienced it,” Boseman said. “People of African descent, most of us grew up accepting and loving Spider-Man. I still love Spider-Man. I still love the Incredible Hulk. I still have those characters that were white role models, superheroes, heroes — whatever you want to call it. You basically had no choice but to accept those. You might have created other superheroes in sports or in politics, but there was never that renowned, widely accepted superhero in the same way.”
