Move over, Spiderman, there is a new hero in town, and he comes straight from the depth of Wakanda. Chadwick Boseman went a long way from starring in 42 and Get on Up, to one of the most loved heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the extraordinary Black Panther.
Who is Chadwick Boseman?
Chadwick Boseman was born in South Carolina, in 1977, by African American parents, Leroy and Carolyn. According to Boseman, his family’s roots are connected with people from Nigeria and Sierra Leone. Little is known, but Chadwick is actually 100% artist.
He is an actor, writer, and director. After all, he did graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing.
Once he received his Bachelor, this famous actor went to London, to attend the Oxford Mid-Summer Program of the British American Drama Academy. From there, he moved to New York, where he graduated from New York City’s Digital Film Academy. He lived in Brooklyn and from there went directly to Los Angeles to try his luck with acting. That was in 2008.
He started his career by appearing in crime dramas such as CSI: NY, All My Children, and Third Watch. He was also seen on the ABC Family drama Lincoln Heights, and as a guest on ER, Lie to Me, Cold Case, and The Glades.
Boseman also started early getting roles in movies, but the first significant role was portraying a Muslim sergeant, on the NBC summer thriller Persons Unknown. Everything kind of took off from there. Then come the parts in 42, Get on Up, and Gods of Egypt in 2016.
That same year he joined the amazing Marvel Universe with a role in superhero blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. Chadwick played T’Challa, king of the African country and kingdom – Wakanda. That was Marvel’s introduction to Black Panther. He will repeat his role in the Black Panther sequel. In the meantime, he is busy with other projects, including one with Spike Lee.
Sorry everyone, but it seems that T’Challa is T’Taken. From October this year (2019), he is officially off the market. He finally decided to pop the question to his longtime girlfriend, Taylor Simone Ledward.
What about wedding details? It’s known that they will tie the know in early 2023. Although no one from the media world knows for how long they have been dating, it is suspected that they started dating in either 2015 or even 2017. So, we expect to see their Black Panther 2 invitation saying: Mr. and Mrs. Boseman.

This 42-years-old had decades of acting and teaching to build his fortune. That long and hard work brought him a nice sum. Just for his role of Black Panther in the same movie Chadwick was paid marvel-ous $5 million.
Together with that role, it’s assumed that his net worth in 2019 is around $8 million. However, with his significant projects happening now, and in the near future, his net worth is only rising to the top, Wakanda style!
