American actor Chadwick Bosman, known as the Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero franchise, has died of cancer at the age of 43.
He died at his home in Los Angeles. Bosman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but did not make the information public.
Baseball great Jackie Robinson from 2013’s 42 and soul singer James Brown from 2014’s Get On Up – Bosman gained importance playing real-life statistics. However, it will be the title Black Panther in the blockbuster 2018 movie as it will be best remembered.
Bokaman is in the role of the ruler of Wakanda. It is a fictional African nation with the most advanced technology on earth. As well as winning critical acclaim and grossing more than 1.3 billion in theaters worldwide, the film was widely seen as a cultural milestone for the black cast and black director Ryan Kogler. Bosman said last year that the film has changed what it means to be “young, smart and black.” Black Panther was the first superhero film to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. He also starred in other Marvel films, including Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avenger: Endgame. His sequel was in the works and he was to return to Bosman in 2022. Born in South Carolina as the son of a nurse and spontaneous entrepreneur, Bosman graduated from Howard University in Washington DC.
