Chadwick Boseman of ‘Black Panther’ is Dead

‘Black Panther’ star, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43 after battling with cancer.

 

The Actor who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe, died on Friday, his representative said.


Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.

 

Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, his family said in a statement.


“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.”
