Chadwick Boseman, the film star of the ground-breaking superhero movie ”Black Panther”, has died from colon cancer, his publicist told AFP on Friday.

Boseman, who was aged 43 prior to his death, had not publicly discussed his condition – which was first diagnosed in 2016 – and continued to work on major Hollywood films.

”It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther,” said a statement posted to the deceased’s social media platforms.

”He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.”

Boseman became the first black superhero to get his own standalone film in the record-breaking Marvel franchise with 2018’s ”Black Panther”.

The movie, set in the fictional African kingdom of Wakanda, was adored by critics and audiences, becoming the first comic book film to be nominated for best picture at the Oscars and grossing over $1 billion worldwide.

Earlier in his career, Boseman played black icons Jackie Robinson in ”42” and James Brown in ”Get on Up”.

He recently appeared in Spike Lee’s ”Da 5 Bloods” and was set to appear in a sequel to ”Black Panther” due in 2022.

”A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all” and filmed projects” during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy,” the family’s statement revealed.

REST IN PEACE CHADWICK BOSEMAN!!!
