Chadwick Boseman made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and he revealed that he's still getting that Wakanda Forever salute. It is now approaching two years since Black Panther hit theaters, catapulting both the character and Boseman into stardom. Since joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Boseman has been getting recognized non-stop, and that includes when he's in disguise.

"We were in Chiang Mai [Thailand], and they were doing a water festival. At the same time there was a lot of pollution in the air at that time so people walking around with masks on to protect themselves from pollution," he explained when asked the strangest place he's been recognized. "So we were walking around at this festival market, and I'm gonna wear a mask so I can enjoy things and people not notice me."

Despite his best efforts, he still got recognized with what little of his face was actually showing. "I had like a hat on, a hood on... People would see me and go," he trialed off, quickly doing the famous Wakanda gesture. "Just from that they could tell who I was, and I was like, 'Oh my god.'"

He also played a game of Cell Phone Profile, in which host Corden attempts to guess who the phone screenshot belongs to.
