Boseman turned into a bona fide A-lister after “Black Panther” became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. The Marvel Cinematic Universe film, with an all-black cast and director, shot into cultural-touchstone territory as Hollywood embraced diversity. Before landing the role of King T’Challa, Boseman played several notable historical figures: Jackie Robinson in “42,” James Brown in “Get On Up” and, in 2017, Thurgood Marshall in “Marshall.” Signed to a five-picture deal with Marvel, he first donned the vibranium-lined suit for “Captain America: Civil War,” then followed his titular role as Black Panther a couple months later in 2018 with the superhero mashup “Avengers: Infinity War” and again in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame.”

Boseman passed away after a four-year battle with cancer in 2020.
