Black Panther Actor Chadwick Boseman Dead AT 43

Blank Panther actor Chadwick Boseman has died after a four battle with colon cancer. He died on Friday at his Los Angeles home with his wife and family beside him at the age of 43.


"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you so many of the films you have come to love so much," his publicist said in a statement.

“Chadwick’s passing is absolutely devastating,” said Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and chief creative officer of Marvel, in a statement. “He was our T’Challa, our Black Panther, and our dear friend. Each time he stepped on set, he radiated charisma and joy, and each time he appeared on screen, he created something truly indelible. He embodied a lot of amazing people in his work, and nobody was better at bringing great men to life. He was as smart and kind and powerful and strong as any person he portrayed. Now he takes his place alongside them as an icon for the ages. The Marvel Studios family deeply mourns his loss, and we are grieving tonight with his family.”

Walt Disney Co. chairman Bob Iger said, “We are all heartbroken by the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman — an extraordinary talent, and one of the most gentle and giving souls I have ever met. He brought enormous strength, dignity and depth to his groundbreaking role of Black Panther; shattering myths and stereotypes, becoming a long-awaited hero to millions around the world, and inspiring us all to dream bigger and demand more than the status quo. We mourn all that he was, as well as everything he was destined to become. For his friends and millions of fans, his absence from the screen is only eclipsed by his absence from our lives. All of us at Disney send our prayers and heartfelt condolences to his family.”


Boseman was diagnosed with a Stage III Cancer in 2016, but that did not make him give up on his dreams. He fought a good fight. The impact he has played in our lives will always be remembered and his legacy will forever live on.
