He also starred in films such as 21 Bridges (2019) and Da 5 Bloods (2020). Boseman died at age 43, four years after being diagnosed with colon cancer.
The heartbreaking news was published by his social media page handlers some hours ago. Firstly on Facebook, then Twitter.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. 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 in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time”.
Oh no this is not happening.
