Rob: What do you think the height differential between Boseman and Chris Evans is? 0.5 inch? They seem very close. I can't see it being more than this.

@TheBat

It probably has more to do with posture than extra footwear. I'd imagine during moments when Evans has looser posture, Chadwick can look pretty much the same height.
TheBat said on 10/Mar/19
@6footTom

Okay now I can see Chris edge Chadwick a bit in most of them, it must be a footwear advantage for Chadwick when they look the same. I have to agree with Rob's listing now as well. Thank you for making aware of this!

I think Boseman usually holds an advantage over Michael B. Jordan by about 0.75-1 inch in event photos, they are not the same height despite their appearance in Black Panther. Also Rob represents a half inch advantage for Evans in their listings, which looks pretty consistent with how Chris and Chadwick appear together.
6footTom said on 8/Mar/19
@TheBat

Even in that event Evans still generally edges him out as well as others.

I'd say this listing is just fine.

@6footTom

In some photos it does look like that. But both are 6'0", they're very similar in height in this photo here.

Edging out an elderly Harrison Ford safely puts him at this mark

@TheBat

There isn't that big of a difference between him and Michael B. Jordan. Plus 6'0" Chris Evans edges him out in pretty much every photo.
GRIT said on 6/Mar/19
I feel 181 guesses are too low, i see him as easily 182-183 range, prbably closer to 183
Johann said on 2/Mar/19
5'11" flat.
TheBat said on 9/Feb/19
Chadwick is easily a flat 6'0". He's an inch a half taller than Michael B. Jordan; 5'11.5" is too low of a listing in my opinion.
Devin Moss said on 21/Oct/18
Chadwick is obviously 6’0”. If y’all say he’s 5’11” 1/2, 1/4 or even 3/4, he’s basically 6’0” (1.83 m).
MAD SAM said on 2/Jul/18
Looks 6 footer, maybe 182 cm but still 6 footer

I can assert that boseman is below this listing, that's when we look at him with pratt at the premiere of v3, pratt WHAT is a weak 6-2 I can say that because he was here in Brazil, I'm a solid 6-2 (188, 6), and boseman reaches 0.25 above pratt eyebrows, I do not know what he's seeing, boseman and evans always seemed pretty close, but sebastian stan was 2.25 on chadwick on that day, and if pratt eyes level Are smaller than my 5.9.25, chadwick is maximum 1.80

EdD No. He was taller in Black Panther, than Jordan. That was very clear, buy the movie and watch the frames as wel as camera angles that tried to make them look same. Jordan has stood next to Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans and Harrison Ford etc, and he looked same as Sebastian Stan in both real life and the move. Sebastian Stan is anywhere from 5'11 flat to 5'11.5, with 5'11 and 1/4 on this site very accurate. He is a hair under Chris Evans in all films and in real life too if one looks where the top of the head ends, Chris Evans is 6ft flat, not over,might be as short as 5'11 and 3/4. Chadwick is shorter than Chris Evans and shorter than Harrison Ford (who is 5'11.5 nowadays, not the 6-6'0.5'' he was 30-55 years ago. In this photo he is a bit taller than Chadwich if you look at the top of the head. Chadwick is 5'11 flat or 5'11 and 1/4. He is not 5'11.5. Sebastian Stan is at least as tall as him,everywhere and always and he is bit under Harrison Ford.They all are close to 1 inch under Chris Evans.
Guest66 said on 7/May/18
Closer to 5’11” flat is quite likely. I don’t think there’s a one big inch between him and Jordan, and Ford might be in 5’10 range also these days.
Beej said on 24/Apr/18
He's very slim so can look taller. 5 '11 max is my score..!
QUA PATET ORBIS said on 21/Apr/18
he can't be 5'10.

he's 5'11 at shortest. i'd say honestly 181
EdD_171.4cm said on 13/Apr/18
This guy surprises me. He's in his early 40's, yet almost looks 10 years younger. He looks only 5-10.5 in Black Panther, but looks over 5-11 standing next to Harrison Ford in the profile picture. Even so, he looked significantly shorter than Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther too, and that actor is listed as 5-10.5 here. I'm still going with 180cm as my guess, but I am hopeful that you get to stand next to him one day Rob.
kev said on 9/Apr/18
shortest he can be is 5'11. he def pulls off 6 feet well
Ventri said on 20/Mar/18
Looked closer to 5'10" in Black Panther, really.
Tall Sam said on 9/Mar/18
The camera made them look similar in height, but in reality I would say Chadwick's definitely the slightly taller guy here than Jordan.

Realist said on 7/Mar/18
He looked 5'10 and 170 pounds in Black Panther and shorter than Michael B Jordan.
QM6'1QM said on 27/Feb/18
5'11.25 or 5'11.5".
Faza said on 27/Feb/18
What is the lowest you think he would measure in cm rob?
Editor Rob
181cm flat...not impossible for him.
Tall Sam said on 14/Feb/18
That Infinity War lineup picture shows Chadwick standing loosely. In other photos he and Cumberbatch look exactly the same height.
Click Here
Also there's a number with Sterling K. Brown where Boseman looks perhaps comfortably 2 cm taller.

Theo said on 31/Dec/17
Rob, do you see him as a spot on 182? All movies I’ve seen him in he looks 182
Editor Rob: sometimes he seems very close to 6 feet, other times I think 5ft 11.5 is perfect for him.
Frost said on 17/Dec/17
Does he personally claim 6'0?
SD-5'8(172CM) said on 8/Dec/17
In the movie 42,he portrays Jackie Robinson Click Here whose listed as
AGE:26
HEIGHT:5'11
WEIGHT:204
Which is funny cause he looks pretty tall in the movie around 6'0 and over 200 lbs due to his broad shoulders plus Chadwick easily looks 10 years younger than his actual age.A strong 5'11 is great height for an actor,he can play superheros to athletes without looking too imposing.
I think he's a strong 5'11.5(181)
Junior said on 14/Nov/17
The ground is not level on Boseman side standing next to Harrison Ford. He might be 6'0.
Slim said on 28/Aug/17
Mark, 181 give or take 5mms is perfect for this guy.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 26/Aug/17
He usually has lax posture. Not too bad posture. However, he isn't far from 6'0" either. I can understand 6'0" listings for Boseman.
Pete said on 19/Aug/17
Finally someone gave him a downgrade. I love Chadwick, but I was baffled seeing so many people backing his 1.83 listing. He's never been able to top Chris Evans, and more recently Benedict Cumberbatch (whom this site has at 1.81-82) even with footwear advantage.
Slim183 said on 15/Aug/17
He looks 5'11.25 in that photo tbh, a lot of people have pegged boseman and cumberbatch at 181, with Chris at weak 6'3. You could make a case for it, but let's face it, rob has met a few mcu cast members and compares the few to the ones on screen. So if robs listing is off by a half inch, it's gonna be complicated to recognise, good luck with that. I doubt chris and boseman are 4 inches apart.
grizz said on 13/Aug/17
Guys,I'm not trying to prove something. I genuinely ask- is that really how a 5'11.5 person looks next to 6'3 guy?
The difference is way bigger than I thought
Slim 182 cm said on 12/Aug/17
grizz, you're evidence backfired so hard, he's the same height as benedict cumberbatch in that picture.....
Slim 182 cm said on 8/Aug/17
grizz, can't you see 9 cm? if you think a quarter inch downgrade is necessary, good luck, cause 6.35 mm is more than just puzzling to notice. If you want, compare rob to a 182-3 guy like Jensen ackles or mikkelson.
Jake T. said on 5/Aug/17
Chadwick looks more than 5'11 and less than 6'0
grizz said on 5/Aug/17

So this is how a 5'11.5 man looks next to 6'3 man (Hemsworth)?
Slim 182 cm said on 3/Aug/17
Great listing, the camera angle is Fords favour, throw the picture above out the window. Comparing him to Chris Evans, he measures 181.5 concretely.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 18/Jul/17
Chadwick has a lot of lax posture while Sebastian is standing fully and he still edges out Sebastian.
arsgh said on 29/Jun/17
181 probably. 182 max
Johno said on 30/Mar/17
About 5'11.
Tiago said on 11/Oct/16
He looks be a 5'11 FT boy to
xaoxio said on 1/Oct/16
Rob, take a look at photos with Michael B. Jordan (Click Here) Do you see more then two centimeters?
Editor Rob: you could say 3/4 inch is possible, but so would a full inch be arguable.
xaoxio said on 1/Oct/16
Rob, ifSebastian Stan is 5'11.25" then isnt Chadwick Boseman the same height then?
Editor Rob: sometimes in photos you could say Stan can look taller, but then overall, 5ft 11.25-5 could be argued for both.
Sebastian is a Wizard said on 8/Aug/16
Yeah Rob, I think it's more due to a subtle slouch that Chadwick has; Stan is noticeably standing as fully erect as possible.
Dmeyer said on 6/Aug/16
Could be à 181 Guy
Sebastian is a Wizard said on 5/Aug/16
Hey Rob, I firmly stand by anything between 182-183 cm for this guy, but how does Sebastian Stan edge him out in every photo of them side by side? Does he have camera proximity advantage?
Editor Rob: camera's can add and remove height at times. I'd have said they were close but at times it is true Stan can look taller.
Josh said on 21/May/16
He and Sebastian Stan should be reversed. You would think that them both being in the 5'11 range you couldn't see a difference but you can. Just like with Sebastian and Chris, Chris has him edged out. 5'11.5-5'11.75 for Stan. 5'11-5'11.25 for Boseman.
MD said on 15/May/16
Here is a picture where they are closer side-by-side than the other shots, and, yeah, it's clear Stan is taller:

Mark said on 11/May/16
Rob, Sebastian is clearly taller, what's up with that? They should definitely be reversed.
Neilsberg said on 8/May/16
You say; "they can look very similar range".?
Look at this photos please, Sebastian Stan-5ft 11.25in(181 cm) measured taller than chadwick Boseman.

What do you think Rob?

Editor Rob: the argument certainly could be that they should be reversed: chad 181 and stan 182...generally Stan can look 181 or 182 range
Neilsberg said on 6/May/16
hello Rob.
In this picture have Sebastian Stan 5ft 11.25in (181 cm) and Chadwick Boseman.
But Chadwick seems measured less than Sebastian Stan, so he is 5ft 11.75in (1.82cm) .

Editor Rob: from looking at the photos available they can look very similar range, above 5ft 11 flat, under 6ft.

He is legit 5'11
Neilsberg said on 22/Apr/16
Hello Rob.
In this image there Laurence Fishburne 0in- 6ft (183 cm) and Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick seems less measured Laurence Fishburne.
Confirming that Chadwick Boseman is 5ft 11.75in (1.82cm) if Laurence Fishburne precisely measuring 6ft 0in- (1.83cm)

What about Rob?

Click Here
Click Here
Editor Rob: I think with chad's hair it is definitely a fraction thicker, so naturally you could see him being a little smaller than fishburne there.
MD said on 22/Mar/16
I mean, sure, they are very close, but it's still obvious that Evans is ever-so-slightly taller.
SomeGuy said on 18/Mar/16
Here's a better picture with Chris Evans: Click Here

Rob the look practically identical height wise. What do you think?
Editor Rob: yes they look very close, typically I'd expect not much difference when measured.

Editor Rob: as I said before they can look within a similar range, I think it is quite possible if measured Evans would nudge him out though.

Well Di Caprio looks slightly taller on that photo with Boseman. Agree, Rob?

Hello Rob
Here are photos of the ceremony of the Oscars 2016:
1)Chadwick Bosemen is the same size or smaller than Leonardo DiCaprio 5ft 11.75in (182 cm).

There was also Chris Evans 6ft 0in (183 cm), which appears on the pictures to be a little taller than Chadwick Boseman.

A bit shorter than evans at the oscars
MD said on 27/Feb/16
Most often he looks around this height, for sure. And then somtimes he looks like this (with 5'7.5"ish Logan Lerman):

Click Here

Sure, he's at an angle disadvantage, but even with that he should probably look taller. That's not nearly enough evidence, however, to downgrade him.
Neilsberg said on 24/Feb/16
I Rob.
In this picture have chris evan 6ft 0in (183 cm) and Chadwick Boseman.
But Chadwick seems measured less than chris evans.
Chadwick seems to be 5ft 11.75in (1.82cm)

What do you think Rob?

Editor Rob: it's a tough photo to tell because of how close Evans is...I've not seen enough of them together to say if Chris is the taller out of them.

5ft 11.75in (182 cm) for me
Mr. Zulu said on 26/Nov/15

What would you say his weight and head size is Rob? I'm guessing 170 and 9.4-9.6 inch range?
Val said on 14/Jun/15
He looks taller in the picture next to Harrison Ford than he does in the film. He did an EXCELLENT job portraying James Brown, ESPECIALLY the dance moves. Whew!!!
Rachel said on 21/Jul/14
Chadwick's height is 6'0
Damon said on 17/Mar/14
I agree with Seahawksfan, though his posture looks poor in this picture. Weird that he's going to play James Brown in an upcoming biopic! He's got at least half a foot on the guy
