Boseman, who played T'Challa in the ground-breaking Black Panther, died in August following a four-year battle with colon cancer. The actor had kept his illness private, with his death coming as a shock to both friends and fans.
Disney has now unveiled a memorial for the actor in Downtown Disney in California. Created by concept artist and illustrator Nikkolas Smith, the mural depicts Chadwick doing the Wakanda Forever salute to a young boy wearing a Black Panther mask.
Smith shared pictures of the artwork on Instagram, telling fans that it was "special". "It is a full circle moment for me", he explained.
"My final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children's Hospital project and the Avengers Campus. To millions of kids, T'Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman."
Smith continued: "I'm so thankful to be able to honour Chadwick's life and purpose in this way. I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist."
Issues such as Maestro #2, Spider-Man Noir #4, and Immortal She-Hulk #1 all include a banner at the top that reads: "Rest in power Chadwick Boseman 1976-2020".
