Chadwick Boseman has played many historic roles — the actor portrayed James Brown in 2014's Get on Up, and Jackie Robinson in 2013's 42!

But when the Captain America: Civil War star suits up as the Black Panther in the 2018 film based on the superhero, he will be the first black actor to play the leading role in a film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
