Last night, Chadwick Boseman surprised unsuspecting fans on the set of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The fans were told that they had been brought to the set to film a video message about what Black Panther meant to them, which would later be shown to Chadwick Boseman. After the fans recorded their message, Boseman, who had been watching the entire ordeal, appeared from behind the curtain.
Fans screamed with delight at the shock of meeting him and one fan shouted “My King! My King!” in reference to the movie. The genuine reactions from the fans are touching and a real pleasure to watch. One woman praised Boseman by saying:
“There’s so many of us out here trying to create great things and I was so inspired, as someone who wants to make movies one day, who wants to inspire people, that art can really change the world.”
Boseman humbly thanked her and the rest of the fans for their kind words, seeming genuinely touched by their support. You can watch the whole clip here:
Black Panther’s success continues to climb and it recently achieved a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is Marvell’s third highest grossing cinematic release, ranking only after the two Avengers movies.
