On August 28, Marvel’s Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman died of colon cancer. Media reported that Chadwick had been hiding his misfortunes from the outside world after being diagnosed with Phase III a few years ago. In the meantime, it has still done quite a lot of work, impressing the audience and fans. In a recent Fortnite game update, developer Epic Games also created a black panther statue for players to hang.
According to comicBook’s website, Epic Games has added a number of monuments to the Fortnite game map since the chapter 2 and season 4 updates. Among them is the “Panther’s Prowl”, which players can find near Misty Meadows.
In an interview with Kotaku, a spokesman said the company erected the statue on September 1. It originated as part of a theme promotional collaboration with Marvel, not as a direct response to Chadwick Boseman’s death.
