“We started talking about another project that I had hoped we would work on,” Jackson said. “And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, I do not want to be there, but I wish we were working together … we had been planning this for a while.’
Jackson went on to explain how Boseman’s life resonated outside of the movies he starred in.
“He shaped society in such a way,” Jackson said, “[He] particularly influenced the black culture and gave the children a hero that they could strive for. ”
After Boseman’s death, social media was flooded with posts by children praising superheroes.
“To lose him, I do not even know if I would have been able to tell my child that,” Jackson said. “I may have waited until they got older so they could treat it better.”
