After bringing life into “Black Panther” movie, actor Chadwick Boseman dies at 43 due to cancer. A charismatic, intense actor and a majestic performer, Chadwick was suffering with cancer since 2016. Boseman was batting with colon cancer and he died at his home with his family and wife by his side, a twitter statement mentioned.

He was 43 when he passed away. A twitter statement from his very own account said, “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and bought you all many of the films you have come to love so much.” From “Captain America: Civil War” to “Marshall” to “Avengers: Infinity wars” to “Black Panther” and “Da 5 Bloods”, his every iconic movie was shot during sessions of chemotherapy and countless surgeries.

The news of his death created hustle bustle and came as a blow to his fans and the star world. He has given several hits on big screen, yet he would be most remembered for his “Black Panther”, the titular hit of all times. As well as winning critical praise and taking more than $1.3 billion US dollars (£973m) at cinemas worldwide, the film was widely seen as a cultural milestone for having a largely black cast and a black director, Ryan Coogler.
