    Serious Chadwick Boseman Dead at 43

    To think this guy was fighting Stage III colon cancer while making Black Panther, Infinity War and Endgame and kept it private with just his family makes it that much more tragic. Goes to show that you never know what someone is going through.

    My thoughts go out to his family. The Black Panther movie was an important one for everyone, but especially for Black youth in search of something positive and with a strong positive lead in the film world they could relate to. Chadwick portrayed T'Challa with grace and strength and he was perfect for the role. I can't even begin to understand the strength it took to continue, despite the kick down this terrible disease was doing to him. This weekend I saw a press junket interview for Black Panther from around the time of release and he was talking about two terminally ill children who wanted to see the movie, but died prior to the release. He broke down telling the story and how he felt a responsibility to give them a film they would have loved.

    Wakanda forever.
    Hope, at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are

    Same here. Also so odd to see him pass on what MLB celebrated as Jackie Robinson weekend since the baseball wasn't going on the usual day.

    Seeing everyone wearing 42 also made it seem odd how close it was to his actual age too.

    It's worse when they're younger than you...
    Or when you hear guys you went to school with are having heart attacks and sh!t. I can't imagine how long the Oscars "In Memoriam" segment is going to be next year!
