The year 2020 cannot get more horrible and devastating. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has passed away. He was battling colon cancer for four years now. The actor who made Wakanda Forever a buzzword all over the world died at his residence surrounded by his loved one. A statement was issued by his publicist, Nicki Flovarante. The statement said, "A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you so 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."
Incidentally, his demise has happened on Jack Robinson day and on the birthday of Jack Kirby, who is the creator of the Black Panther series. For Boseman, playing T'Challa was a huge honour. Condolences are pouring in from all over the world. Mark Ruffalo tweeted, "All I have to say is the tragedies amassing this year have only been made more profound by the loss of #ChadwickBoseman. What a man, and what an immense talent. Brother, you were one of the all time greats and your greatness was only beginning. Lord love ya. Rest in power, King."
Boseman was quite young. He was just 43. The star hailed from South Carolina. He graduated from Howard University in Washington DC. Chris Evans tweeted, "I’m absolutely devastated. This is beyond heartbreaking. Chadwick was special. A true original. He was a deeply committed and constantly curious artist. He had so much amazing work still left to create. I’m endlessly grateful for our friendship. Rest in power, King."
