According to the post, Boseman was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” the statement reads. It goes on to say that all of Chadwick’s movies since 2016 “were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”

Boseman has played Black icons such as Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and James Brown to widespread acclaim. His performances were heartfelt, impactful and incredibly important.

His role as Black Panther catapulted his career in 2018. His most recent film, Da 5 Bloods, released in cinemas on June 12, 2020, directed by Spike Lee. Boseman’s final film appearance will be Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom which was filmed in the summer of 2019.

Rest in peace to Chadwick Boseman. The world feels darker without your light. Our thoughts go out to his family and loved ones. Wakanda Forever.
