This is so very sad. He was so very talented. Beyond T’Challa, he also played Thurgood Marshall in Marshall.

Just a shocking piece of news I think for everyone. Such a tragedy here for an individual who was beloved within both the Hollywood and fandom communities. His bright light will truly be missed.

He was diagnosed in 2016.

So timeline wise, he was fighting this as he was filming these movies. Every time we saw him was a triumph, and he bested this disease long enough to give us a piece of art that inspired millions. It’s timeless, and he will never be forgotten.

R.I.P Chadwick Boseman. Wakanda Forever.

Posted in the other thread before I saw this one was made first, sorry. Cancer is terrible. It is very tragic how young he was and had to be dealing with that. Sorry for his loved ones.

Agreed- definitely indeed a tragedy @iJest, especially when one considers the super bright future ahead of him on the big screen and in life in general. Very sad news here to be sure.

My friend (Marvel fan) just told me this, wow. I know how beloved the Black Panther movie is, very sorry for his family and fans. RIP.

It’s really hard to put into words how much his work has helped me grow as a person. I’ve learned so much about empathy and the strength of others. I’ll never forget watching 42 for the first time freshman year of high school. I can’t believe how difficult it must have been working the past few years. Rest in power.

Un ■■■■■■■ believable, man. I thought it was a joke when I first saw the headlines and had to double check. I first saw him as Jackie Robinson, then James Brown, and later Thurgood Marshall. I had no idea he was sick since 2016 and has been filming in spite of that.
