Ava DuVernay’s ‘Queen Sugar’ features touching tribute to Chadwick Boseman
To show the BLACK PANTHER doll on “Queen Sugar” last night took the strength of two friendships. That of our network founder and the head of the studio that made the film. And my own with the film’s director. Thanks to all who touched this scene. “That’s a good place for a king.” pic.twitter.com/3XzD8LmYMk

+ In the latest episode of the Oprah-produced Queen Sugar, program creator Ava Duvernay included a scene where Kofi Siriboe and Ethan Hutchinson’s characters touched on Chadwick Boseman’s legacy.
+ The scene features a licensed Marvel Legends Black Panther action figure, and given the nature of intellectual trademarks, the friendships between Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Oprah Winfrey along with the relationship between DuVernay and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler are credited as the reasons for the tribute coming together, Ava explained.
