As many are finding out, Black Panther action star, Chadwick Boseman has passed away. It appears Chadwick had Colon Cancer and was diagnosed in 2016. He never spoke about his diagnosis and dismissed questions regarding his noticeable weight loss. In an offical response from his family via his Instagram page
“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.”
To respect the wishes of the family, we will not dwell on it, but will say goodbye to a great young actor. You had little time on earth but made a huge impact. Wakanda Forever!
