“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 played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe.

Boseman was born in South Carolina and graduated from Howard University. He had small roles in television before his first star turn in 2013.

“His striking portrayal of the stoic baseball star Robinson opposite Harrison Ford in 2013′s “42” drew attention in Hollywood and made him a star,” The Washington Post reported, adding that “Boseman died on a day that Major League Baseball was celebrating Jackie Robinson day.”
