Chadwick Boseman’s Death Will Alter Fortnite, Avengers’ Black Panther Plans

Written by

Fortnite EPIC After the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman who died at 43 after a protracted secret struggle with colon cancer this past week two major games will have to alter their plans for introducing the nature he made famous into their worlds. One would be Fortnite which has a Marvel-themed season occurring at present and Crystal Dynamics Avengers which is launching this week


Both games coincidentally had/have plans for Black Panther to reach but now both will have to figure out the right way to introduce the hero. And that just about certainly means not profiting off his appearance at all. First up is Fortnite which as of yesterday planted a Panther s Prowl statue inside the south of the map


Some believe this was crafted as a tribute for Boseman and yet this was actually planned before his death. Past this there are leaks of upcoming Black Panther superpowers making their way into the game (along with powers from Hulk Storm Wolverine Iron Man and more) and the belief is that there’s possibly going to be a Black Panther skin sold at some point


For either one of these games I don’t think the right move is to scrap their Black Panther plans. And yet in Fortnite s case I stand by my previous suggestion that if a Black Panther skin is sold whatever revenue sharing deal Epic has between itself and Marvel both parties should conform to donate whatever they make from the skin to either a cancer charity or one Boseman previously supported


I don t see any other way Black Panther must be introduced into the game as it really is impossible to split out Boseman from the enduring hero. Fortnite EPIC PROMOTED Google Cloud BRANDVOICE | Paid Program

Manuel Pastor And Amelia Ransom The Avengers game is in a bit of yet another situation. Yesterday before the displaying in their War Table which makes a speciality of upcoming content for the game there has been a message that revealed they were altering what they were going to reveal out of respect for Boseman s passing with text in front of a big Black Panther logo


Rumor has it that Black Panther is the third mystery post-launch hero for Avengers with any other two being Kate Bishop and Hawkeye. And that he will arrive with a full-on Wakandan raid activity inside the coming months. My guess is that he was imagined to be teased yesterday but they decided not to as that may have been taken the wrong way


It was an excellent call. And yet again they re not going to scrap that character or content. The good news is that during Avengers case new heroes and the content they come with are free as part of the game s bid to be a game-as-service with endless free updates


But they do sell cosmetic battle passes for each new character they add for $10 and presumably Black Panther would have one. In this case again the move either seems to donate that money to charity like I suggested with Fortnite or possibly just to offer that battle pass away without charge and let any other 2-10 heroes they release inside the next year or two have paid passes instead


LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 24: Chadwick Boseman poses inside the press room during the 2019. [+] GETTY IMAGES FOR DCP Briefly there s just no way that Fortnite or Avengers must be profiting off Black Panther arriving in their games inside the coming weeks or months. I know that Chadwick Boseman is not literally T Challa but his iconic performance is impossible to extract from the nature and it would come off in order that so poorly if Black Panther was sold as a skin or a battle pass add-on as opposed to being free or a vessel for charity donations


I don t see another choice here for either of these games and I would hope the developers believe me. It is going to be impossible to play as Black Panther in those games without taking into account Boseman s incredible work inside the role. As always Wakanda Forever.
