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.”
