DUBAI: Late actor Chadwick Boseman is set to receive the MTV Hero for the Ages honor on Sunday, during the “MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time” special.
Boseman, who played the Marvel superhero Black Panther, will be presented with the posthumous award by his “Avengers: Endgame” co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle.
The actor died in August at the age of 43 after privately battling colon cancer.
The award “honors a star whose heroism on-screen was only surpassed by the true hero they were off-screen,” MTV said in a statement on Friday.
Hosted by Vanessa Hudgens, the 90-minute special will honor the best moments in film and TV from the 1980s until now.
