Along with a touching tribute in the end credits of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, late Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman also gets a street named after him in the game’s version of New York City.


Originally discovered by Reddit user RollieDell, Boseman Way is located on a stretch of the game’s 42nd Street, between 3rd Avenue and 1st Avenue. As RollieDell points out, Boseman’s breakout movie role was playing Jackie Robinson in the biographical film 42. Here’s a shot of the map, should you have trouble finding the right spot.

Boseman tragically passed in August of this year of complications from a long, silent battle with colon cancer. He was 43 years old. We miss the hell out of him.

I’m probably not going to get a PS5 for a while. ... is the Wakandan embassy on that street? Cuz... come on. That or, like, a jazz hall to tie into Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom? Lean into it, Insomniac! We’ll love you for it!
