A history that will remain for ages is about to be made Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther Suit from the 2018 Marvel film will go on display in spring at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, D.C.

The black customized costume worn by the late Chadwick Boseman has attracted attention to the center stage of exhibitions. The iconic suit will be displayed on March 24th, 2023 at mithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, D.C with other pieces from the movie, including a shooting script that was signed by Ryan Coogler.


Boseman who died at the age of 43 after a long battle with colon cancer starred as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel franchise in 2020. Immediately after his death, the writers had to do a little change of roles in the movie which delayed the release of part 2 of Black Panther. So far the film has grossed over $545 million worldwide, becoming the eighth highest-grossing film of 2022.

According to the Museum “Black Panther is the first superhero of African descent to appear in mainstream American comics, and the film itself is the first major cinematic production based on the character,”

The character of the Black Panther, king of the never-colonized Wakanda, made its debut in a July 1996 Marvel comic in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four #52, according to the University Libraries at the Washington University in St. Louis. The debut was the first black superhero in U.S. comic-book history.

In 2016, Marvel launched a new Black Panther storyline asked to be written by National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates. In 2018, Ryan Coogler helped direct T’Challa’s incredible tale to come to life.

Black Panther illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past has overlooked Blacks, or regulated them to flat, one-dimensional and marginalized figures. The film, like the museum, provides a fuller story of Black culture and identity,” NMAAHC said in a press release.
