Fuck! He seemed so healthy. I honestly would have guessed he was in his early 30s.

He had a lot of promise.

Shit, such a good actor. Saw 21 Bridges lately, and Black Panther was my favorite comic character when I was a kid.

Eff off, 2020.

Feel sorry for a lot of kids who lost their hero.

Most people didn’t even know he was sick. At least non celebrities.

Itís crazy that he was battling colon cancer throughout every single one of his Marvel appearances.

Re: Chadwick Boseman dead at 43

He looked gaunt in the re-shot finale of "21 Bridges", and perhaps this explains it....

I am just shocked. He was on the Graham Norton Show this year and looked so happy and healthy. And was a great guest. Very personable. This is so sad.

Wow. Very sad & shocking. He was just getting started, it seemed. I was looking forward to seeing more from him. He'll certainly be greatly missed.

Iím just shocked and speechless, with tears rolling down my eyes. What his performance as Black Panther meant for everyone was invaluable. Man, seriously, fuck 2020.

Re: Chadwick Boseman dead at 43

If anyone here saw 21 Bridges last year, later in the movie, he looked like he lost massive weight compared to earlier in the movie. The movie went through reshoots. He was noticeably thinner. But, I took it as if he lost weight for a role.

I heard African Americans are extremely at high risk for colon cancer. Just sad. And to think he was sick for both Avengers movies and Black Panther.

He was such a great talent. I am speechless. Didnít even know he was sick. What an immeasurable loss.

Like others, I'm shocked and saddened. He was a fantastic actor.

I hate you 2020.

Crazy. Definitely feels out of nowhere. Had no idea he was sick at all. I have to wonder if the MCU recasts TíChalla or if there will be a new Black Panther.
