Black Panther Actor Chadwick Boseman Dies Of Cancer

Chadwick Boseman dies of cancer aged 43, Tributes pour in for Black Panther actor

Hollywood actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for playing Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero franchise, has died after a private four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43.

Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but had not made the information public.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” his family said in the statement. “From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more- all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”

He died at home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side, a statement posted on social media said.

The news of Boseman’s death sent shockwaves through Hollywood and around the world. Tributes are being paid to the actor on social media. The Black Panther rallying cry “Wakanda Forever” trended online, as celebrities, civil rights activities and fans posted emotional messages.

Chris Evans, who played Captain America in the Marvel series, tweeted: “Chadwick was special. A true original. He was a deeply committed and constantly curious artist. He had so much amazing work still left to create. I’m endlessly grateful for our friendship.”

“What a gentle gifted soul. Showing us all that greatness between surgeries and chemotherapy. This is what dignity looks like,” wrote TV star and author Oprah Winfrey.

Chris Hemsworth, the Thor of Avenger movies, wrote: “Gonna miss you mate. Absolutely heartbreaking. One of the kindest most genuine people I’ve met.”

Boseman had recently appeared in Spike Lee’s Vietnam War-set “Da 5 Bloods,” and was set to appear in a sequel to “Black Panther” due in 2022.

“Our hearts are broken and our thoughts are with Chadwick Boseman’s family. Your legacy will live on forever. Rest In Peace,” wrote the official Marvel Twitter account.
