Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Chadwick Boseman who played the roles of Black Panther in Marvel Cinematic Universe and also acted in 21 Bridges, Get on Up, 42: The True Story of an American Legend, Marshall dies of Colon Cancer at the age of 43 in his Los Angeles house in the presence of his wife, Taylor Simone Ledward.
Chadwick Boseman was born in Anderson, South Carolina, The United States of America. At a young age, in his junior year, Chadwick wrote his own play inspired after the events of his friend getting shot and staged it at his school.
He is a Howard University graduate with a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing. Boseman showed a lot of interest in writing and directing, he soon moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in acting.
His life was smooth and going good. The real turn took place when he landed himself a role in MCU as Black Panther who first appeared in Captain America: Civil War. From then on, fans wanted to see more of the African hero and his back story. Marvel took the opportunity and made a film that divulged us about Wakanda, a fictional country and Chadwick Boseman got worldwide recognition for his role.
Amongst all success and popularity, he never spoke about cancer in public, his family said in a statement. Apparently, Chadwick was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, yet he continued to reach higher in his career.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. 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 honour of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
Millions of fans are upset after hearing the news and the world pays homage for the lost. All his roles were inspiring and his work is true brilliance. His death is a miserable loss to the world.
