Chadwick Boseman is dead: The Marvel star from “Black Panther” was only 43 years old

He was known to blockbuster audiences as the Black Panther, and before that he made an impression as Jackie Robinson and James Brown. Now the actor Chadwick Boseman has died of cancer. Many of his colleagues have already reacted.

It is also a shock for many fans and moviegoers because Chadwick Boseman did not speak publicly about his four-year battle with colon cancer. The actor died yesterday, Friday, at the age of 43 – with his family, as it is called by AP.

Marvel Star – and much more

Chadwick Boseman starred in the first black superhero blockbuster, the box office hit “Black Panther” (2018), after his character T’Challa in “Captain America 3: Civil War” was introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was also in “Avengers 3” and “Avengers 4” again as king in battle suit, together with many other heroes, and should play the part in “Black Panther 2” again, which is due to hit theaters on May 5, 2022 .

However, Chadwick Boseman gained notoriety even before Marvel. In “42 – The True Story of a Sports Legend” he played the stoic baseball star Jackie Robinson, who is a black icon – similar to musician James Brown, who Boseman embodied in the biopic “Get On Up”.

As Boseman’s family said in a statement, the actor filmed many of his parts between surgery and chemotherapy. His films also include the action thriller “Message From The King” and “21 Bridges”. Since June 2020 he can be seen as a popular soldier leader in Spike Lee’s war drama “Da 5 Bloods” on Netflix.

That’s how Hollywood reacts

Chadwick Boseman’s colleagues, including directors like Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) and Marvel actors like Brie Larson and Chris Pratt, are sad about his sudden death on social networks. Many point out what a pleasant, talented friend and colleague Chadwick Boseman was. He is honored as an actor who inspired in his roles, whether as a superhero or as a hero without superpowers.

The true power of @ChadwickBoseman was bigger than anything we saw on screen. From the Black Panther to Jackie Robinson, he inspired generations and showed them they can be anything they want – even super heroes. Jill and I are praying for his loved ones at this difficult time.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 29, 2020
