Chadwick Boseman has been passed over this year for a Golden Globe and an Oscar award for playing James Brown in Get on Up.
It's really no big deal to Boseman as the actor says he would rather have an action figure than Oscar or Golden Globe gold.
"When it comes down to it, I’d rather have an action figure than a Golden Globe," Boseman said, reports THR.
Of course, Boseman is referencing his Marvel deal with Black Panther, as Boseman is set to play Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War and is thought to make an appearance in this May's The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Independent.com also reports Chadwick Boseman has signed a five-picture deal with Marvel to portray Black Panther.
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits May 1st 2015; Captain America: Civil War has a May 5, 2016 release.

It's learned that Mehcad Brooks has been cast as Jimmy Olsen in the CBS Supergirl TV series, with it also said Olsen will be the love interest to Kara Zor-El.
The character will actually apparently be called "James" and not Jimmy, and is described as: an attractive photographer at CatCo, the media company where Kara Zor-El works, as an assistant to Cat Grant. Recently, James has been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret.
Of course, Jimmy Olsen is known for being a co-worker and friend to Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane.
More than likely the casting of Brooks will come with some controversy, similar to Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch in Fantastic Four, as Jimmy Olsen is white in the comic books.
Mehcad Brooks joins Melissa Benoist who will play Supergirl. Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are executive producing, with Berlanti and Adler also penning the pilot.
Brooks is known for roles in Necessary Roughness and Desperate Housewives.

Marvel recently announced the casting of David Tennant for the Netflix Jessica Jones series.
Tennant has been named to being playing the villain known as Kilgave.
While not exactly confirmed for Jessica Jones, Kilgrave in the comics is Zebediah Killgrave aka The Purple Man.
Radio Times caught up with Tennant and questioned the actor about Marvel and the character, where you can see in the following video that Tennant happens to be wearing a purple tie.
“I grew up on Marvel comics, so it’s very exciting to be part of their ever expanding entertainment empire," Tennant said. "It’s great. I love the movies, I love the TV shows that they do, so I’m very pleased to be part of one.
“I grew up an absolute devotee to the worlds of Marvel," Tennant continued. "So the fact that they’ve expanded now into TV and film is something that I think I sort of fantasized about when I was younger. So now to be part of it, to be on the other side of it is a thrill.
While it's been said David Tennant will be playing a villain, the former Doctor Who remains coy.
"Who says it’s a villain?" Tennant questioned with a smile. "Make no assumptions. I’m saying nothing. I’ve found myself in another world which I can answer no questions about.”
Watch the video below for more from David Tennant.
"Jessica Jones" stars Krysten Ritter as the titular character and Mike Colter as Luke Cage.
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.

Fox Studios has given the Deadpool movie the greenlight, which will see Ryan Reynolds reprise as the Merc With The Mouth.
Reynolds recently stated that Deadpool is being done the right way, and now the character's creator, Rob Liefeld, weighs in on the movie.
"I am unable to discuss anything specific to the screenplay but I can tell you that they have created a pulse-pounding adventure with action sequences that I feared would be stolen prior to the film reaching the big screen," Liefeld told Total Film Magazine. "They are that good. I wouldn't champion anything less. This film is unique and will instantly become the defining Deadpool story. This is what all other Deadpool movies will be measured against."
Liefeld also mentions that Ryan Reynolds is perfect for the part.
"Ryan Reynolds has the voice as well as the physicality that Deadpool requires," Liefeld said. "He has that perfect, flippant attitude down pat. His limited role as part of Wolverine's crew in Origins was fantastic. The audience loved him. Then that third act took a left turn and they didn't maximize on Ryan's appeal or Deadpool's potential. I've never wavered in support for Ryan as Deadpool, he's perfect."
Speaking of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, like many of us, Liefeld wasn't a big fan of how Deadpool was portrayed.
"I spoke to a producer who worked on that film - he is no longer associated with the franchise - who felt that Deadpool's role was just to serve as a nemesis for Wolverine. Sewing his mouth shut and putting him in costume was ridiculous, short-sighted and limited the appeal. Thankfully, Ryan championed the spinoff film."
"Deadpool" has a February 12, 2016 release and begins filming this March.

March sees the end of Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns, but will it also see the end of the Green Lantern ring for Hal Jordan?
A promo featured in the back of this week's DC comics features Green Lantern editor Matt Idelson offering up teases for what's to come following Convergence.
For Green Lantern, Idelson teases, "Let's just say for the moment, the ring will no longer be the thing!"
We get a possible further hint about what's going on from the March solicit for Green Lantern #40 as Newsarama points out an "ultimate betrayal" is mentioned, with "what could make Hal Jordan turn on the Templar Guardians and the Corps?" questioned, in addition to "a status quo change that will impact all the Green Lantern titles!" stated.
Is it possible either Jordan will be stripped of his ring or that he won't need his ring to access the Green Lantern power? Or even that Hal may be replaced?
Convergence runs April and May.
