The Best Avengers Blooper Makes Us Miss Chadwick Boseman Even More

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman's death in 2020 is among the worst tragedies the Marvel Cinematic Universe has endured. The 43-year-old actor's passing after a long battle with colon cancer was unexpected to nearly everyone outside his inner circle, and it remains to be seen how the MCU will manage to recover from his absence. All that is certain is that Black Panther 2 will neither recast the role of King T'Challa nor replace Boseman with CGI. Perhaps director Ryan Coogler's upcoming, Wakanda-themed Disney+ series will address the situation in some fashion. Regardless of which route the MCU takes, only one thing is certain: it won't be easy to fill Boseman's shoes.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and since Boseman was universally beloved among his MCU castmates and fans, it's difficult to imagine any way to appreciate the man any more than we already do. But, in case you've not yet seen it, here's the best Avengers blooper, one that makes us miss Chadwick Boseman even more.  

King T'Challa meets his match in a noisy goat

Chadwick Boseman brought plenty of gravitas to the role of King T'Challa, but not even the ruler of Wakanda is a match for an unruly goat. In this Avengers: Infinity War blooper posted by Twitter user @SPECTOR2099, T'Challa and Okoye (Danai Gurira) are calling the reluctant Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) to join the fight against Thanos, but things go south almost immediately. Just as T'Challa tells Bucky, "You have found something — a sense of peace," a goat hanging out in the background starts bleating in a decidedly non-peaceful way. Gurira loses it almost immediately and practically falls down laughing. Boseman manages to maintain his composure slightly longer, but soon breaks in a smile and turns to the goat. "Okay now, you are going too far now," he chastises the impressively noisy animal, never breaking from his Wakandan accent.  

Marvel movies have no shortage of fun bloopers, but seeing Boseman maintain his composure enough to break a smile but not break character brings an extra layer of bittersweet fun to this short clip — as well as giving us a chance to see him in action for a few more precious seconds.
