Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman surprises fans

Black Panther's immense cultural impact on audiences can't ever be underestimated.

As part of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the host invited just a few of the film's passionate fans to discuss what exactly the film means to them, and their responses were moving: from having a "hero that we really need in a time like this", for helping to define the childhood of a young boy, to depicting strong black women on screen.

Asked to film a video message to star Chadwick Boseman, what these fans didn't quite realise is that T'Challa himself was hidden behind a curtain the whole time, watching on as they poured their hearts out.

Only for Boseman to step out from his hiding place with a small interjection: leading to some hilarious, some sweet reactions from the gobsmacked fans. One man even immediately greeted him with his arms over his chest, the traditional Wakandan greeting, and the pronouncement: "My king! My king!"

Another jokingly thanked Boseman for wearing the Black Panther suit for the majority of the film, because "when your chest was out, [my girlfriend] was getting a little excited, and I felt insecure, so thank you for that."
