RIP Black Panther/Chadwick Boseman

Dead at 43 from colon cancer.  Barely had time to enjoy becoming a star.  Sad.

Was also Jackie Robinson in a movie that made me uncomfortable during some of those scenes.

Apparently he'd been battling it for 4 years, and Black Panther came out just 2 years ago (seems longer).

Did he keep this a secret? I never saw a thing that he was seriously ill.

I can't say I was keeping up with him but you think we'd have heard something.

Bummer.  He played Jackie Robinson, an American Hero, very well IMO. Waaaaaaaay too young.

They said he didn't talk about it. I'm sure it was known to the studios because he would film between surgeries and chemo apparently

I just don't think he ever made it public

 

The guy who played Jackie Robinson in the Biopic dies on the day MLB rescheduled to honor Jackie....

Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.

Boseman had not spoken publicly about his diagnosis. He is survived by his wife and a parent and had no children, Fioravante said.

***** cancer! That is way to young for anybody to die. And for him to be going through that for 4 years and yet still managed to do movies like Black Panther... He's a real life hero. RIP Chadwick
