'Black Panther' Star Chadwick Boseman Has Died Of Cancer At Age 43

The Family says Chadwick Boseman died at age 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.


Chadwick Boseman, who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe, was pronounced dead on Friday of cancer, at age 43.
He 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 news agency.
Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, his family released 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.
“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.”
Boseman did not speak publicly about his diagnosis. He is survived by his wife and a parent and had no children, Fioravante said.
