Once upon a time, Chadwick Boseman got the role of a lifetime and he was probably so excited to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But, what he didn’t realize was with ‘Wakanda Forever’ he was signing up for that phrase for literally forever.
Yes, Black Panther was a great success and yes, the billion-dollar franchise is not yet finished, even though Black Panther himself ceased to exist in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, but how much of one pose can someone take?
He’s not the first person to do the iconic cross-armed pose and he won’t be the last, but he is the only character that will be associated with it for years to come, and our boy Chadwick here is already done with it in less than a year. But, if the biggest downside of your fame is that you have to just freaking pose with all the fans forever, I say that’s a pretty good deal, he got lucky.
During the promotion of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, the entire cast appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and that is when Chadwick – the ‘coolest, blackest dude in the galaxy with a whitebread-ass name’ – opened up about how sick and tired he was of the whole ‘Wakanda Forever’ salute. He said, “If I don’t want to do it, I have to not leave the house, pretty much. I’ve been chased in cars.”
But, with the millions of dollars that come along with the role of Black Panther, I’m sure he doesn’t mind it that much. But, sometimes on red carpets and other appearances, his face betrays him and everyone can see the pain in his eyes and each and every existential crisis he has had.
Here are some hilarious tweets about Chadwick’s suffering because turns out that apparently, we’re all sadists.
He truly does.
Every time some says “Wakanda Forever” Chadwick Boseman looses 2 minutes off his life span

This is closer that we know.
The year is 2045. Chadwick Boseman hasn’t played Black Panther for years. A fan asks him to do the Wakanda forever pose for a photo for the millionth time. Enough is enough. He drop kicks the fan and is finally free.

He must be glad he died(?) in Infinity War.
Chadwick Boseman does not want Wakanda to be forever.
