Sadly, Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman passed away today according to his official Twitter page!
Unbeknownst to everyone, Boseman had been battling stage IV Colon Cancer. He was diagnosed with stage III Colon Cancer in 2016. He filmed Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and a slew of other movies while fighting the crippling disease. Somehow, through surgeries and chemotherapy, he shined!
Boseman died in his home surrounded by his loved ones. He was 43. His presence is one that cannot be replaced. In honor of his iconic role, we simply say “Wakanda Forever.”
