Chadwick Boseman Shuts Down All ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Questions by Telling Press ‘I’m Dead’
The “Black Panther” actor has gone viral after refusing to speak with a reporter about anything regarding the much awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.
“Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo may be concerned about Tom Holland giving away spoilers, but the filmmaking duo has nothing to worry about when it comes to Chadwick Boseman.
Here is the part of the interview
The actor’s superhero Black Panther was one of several characters killed off in the final moments of “Avengers: Infinity War” and while many expect to see Black Panther resurrected by the end of the upcoming “Endgame” Boseman isn’t giving any clues away.
During a recent red carpet appearance to promote his upcoming thriller “21 Bridges”. Boseman was pressured by one reporter to talk about “Endgame” and his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Oscar-winning “Black Panther” is getting a sequel, which all but confirms the character will be seen alive by the end of “Endgame,” but Boseman refused to break and answer MCU questions, repeatedly telling the journalist, “I’m dead” The exchange went as follows:
Interviewer: People are ready to see this movie [“Avengers: Endgame”].
Chadwick Boseman: Of course.
Interviewer: They’re buying the tickets, it’s nuts. How does that feel to know people love this film so much?
Chadwick Boseman: It’s great, but I’m dead. So I can’t answer any questions about that.
Interviewer: OK, so you don’t want to give us a spoiler or anything like that.
Chadwick Boseman: I’m dead.
nterviewer: How about “Black Panther 2,” anything you can tell us?
Chadwick Boseman: I’m dead.
Interviewer: We’re not ready for you to be dead, Chadwick!
Chadwick Boseman: But I am. I’m dead.
Boseman’s response quickly went viral on social media. The video of Boseman saying “I’m dead” has earned over 15 million views and counting in just a couple of days.
Boseman and the other actors in the MCU whose characters “died” at the end of “Infinity War” have not been included on Disney’s “Endgame” press tour.
At the movie’s April 7 press junket, several seats onstage were purposefully kept open in memory of the departed MCU superheroes.
Chadwick Boseman is committed to staying away from Avengers: Endgame spoilers.
The Black Panther actor, 41, was one of the fan-favorites who vanished at the end of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War after bad guy Thanos (Josh Brolin) snapped his fingers and erased half of the world’s population.
As press for the movie heats up before it hits theaters on April 26, Boseman is having a harder time dodging questions about the Marvel epic that puts together the most superheroes in franchise history.
The actor met a particularly prodding interviewer at CinemaCon last week, and his repeated response that he was “dead” has since gone viral. The 22-second video has gone viral on Twitter, where one user made it into a meme.
“When people ask you for help but your work shift just ended,” the user wrote next to the video of Boseman repeatedly saying, “I’m dead.” “Avengers: Endgame” opens in theaters April 26.
