Chadwick Boseman 'Culture Impact Immeasurable' Says Chris Evans

While talking about his leaked nude pic, Chris Evans also spoke about the death of Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman.

Evans, who played Captain America, starred with Boseman in three Marvel movies including Captain America: Civil War, The Avengers: Infinity War, and The Avengers: Endgame, spoke with Tamron Hall.

Hall questioned Evans: "Chadwick Boseman, I just spoke with Sam Jackson, I know you lost a friend and you said on social media you were endlessly grateful for your friendship, how has it been processing this?"

Evans responded: "It's been tough. It's been tough for everybody. I think that highlights the power he had. As Sam said, his cultural impact is just immeasurable. Not just as an artist, but as a man, the way he spoke, the way he carried himself, he bred an allegiance, he galvanized, he inspired. It's heartbreaking, it's tough, it's a process but his impact, his legacy is solidified forever."
