LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe, died Friday of cancer, his representative said. He was 43.

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 was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, his family said in a statement.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” his family said in the statement. “From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more- all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”

I really liked him playing Jackie Robinson. Shame he died so young.

Good actor. I thought he was younger than 43.   He kept his cancer a secret.

I've seen Black Panther. The other three I got coming up in retrospect. Thank you, John (again)! An excellent actor and a superb man from what I read of him.

Well, that sucks very much.

From what I read, this cancer is more typical in people over 50, but the occurrence of it in younger people has been increasing in recent years. Why exactly, is not known. It's also more prevalent in African-Americans. I don't think that fact is well known. Perhaps his passing will raise awareness.

I've watched two of Mr. Chadwick Boseman's movies since his death. One I had not watched before. More to go!
