The worldwide actor, who brought Black Panther to life on the big screen, passed away on August 28. After the news of his death broke, the actor's co-stars took to social media and expressed their shock while paying tributes to the talented actor.

On Friday evening, August 29, 2020, the people of Twitter received the devastating news of Chadwick Boseman's death at the too-young age of 43. "A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought numerous films you have come to love so much", the statement continues.

"From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods", the post continued, "August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy".

Boseman had not spoken publicly about his diagnosis. The actor died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side.

The news came in the form of a photo and a statement posted to the Black Panther star's official Twitter account.

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. From Chris Evans to Mark Ruffalo and many more remembered Chadwick. He embodied a lot of fantastic people in his work, and nobody was better at bringing great men to life.

In the end, as we learn of Chadwick Boseman's final years, it's clear that he, like Jackie Robinson, displayed great courage and grace during the harshest time of his life.

"It's a humbling experience because you're like, 'This can't mean that much to them, ' you know?" Boseman said. "She sat me down on a couch, just like this, she just talked to me very frankly and told me the reasons why she was attracted to him, what she thought of him before she met him..."

"There was a time period where people would ask me questions about whether or not an audience could sit through a movie with a lead character that spoke with that accent", he said at the time.
