Marvel Studios Pays Tribute to Late Black Panther Actor Chadwick Boseman
Chadwick Boseman, who died Friday at the age of 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer. The star, who portrayed Jackie Robinson in 42 and James Brown in Get on Up before being cast as Wakandan prince-turned-King T'Challa in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, became the first Black actor to lead a solo Marvel Studios movie when reprising his role in the Ryan Coogler-directed Black Panther. The blockbuster, which grossed $1.34 billion globally, earned seven total Academy Award nominations and was the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture.
"Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV," reads a statement from Boseman's team. It was "during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy" throughout this private illness that the actor filmed Thurgood Marshall biography Marshall, period music drama Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and the Spike Lee-directed Da 5 Bloods.”
