The world was left shocked and saddened on August 28, 2020 when Marvel Cinematic Universe star Chadwick Boseman, best known for the role as Prince T’Challa in the movie Black Panther, died at the tragically young age of 43. For the first time, in the wake of his untimely passing, Boseman’s family revealed that the superhero had been living with and treating stage IV colon cancer for four years. Boseman kept his diagnosis entirely private, and clearly, he wanted to keep his struggle a secret from the world.
Astonishingly, the statement confirmed that, while undergoing treatment, Boseman filmed some of his biggest movies, from important biopics to MCU staples to Spike Lee joints. It’s impossible to understate how much strength and sheer will it must have taken for Boseman to film some of his most physically demanding projects, including a standalone MCU film, while being treated for cancer, and as we mourn the loss of this talented actor, these movies will remain a testament to his talent, perseverance, and fighting spirit.
Boseman’s list of IMDb credits include a mixture of one-off TV credits in his early career, escalating to the major blockbuster films that he’s now known for. In addition to acting, he directed two short films, and produced several of his recent projects, including the biopic Marshall.
Chadwick Boseman’s net worth is estimated to be $12 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He got his first television role last 2003 in an episode of the television show Third Watch. Chadwick also played roles in episodes of the television series Er, CSI: NY and Law & Order. He continued writing plays, and his script for Deep Azure showed in Chicago, Illinois’ Congo Square Theatre Company. This play was able to receive a nomination for the Joseph Jefferson Award last 2006. In 2008, he was able to play a recurring role for the television series called Lincoln Heights and appeared in the movie The Express. He got a regular role in the television series called Persons Unknown.
Last 2014, Boseman was able to appear opposite Kevin Costner in the film Draft Day. Here, he played the role of an NFL draft prospect. Chadwick eventually starred in the movie Get on Up as James Brown. Last 2016, he starred as the deity called Thoth in the Egyptian mythology called Gods of Egypt.
He began playing the character Black Panther or T’Challa with Marvel Comic late 2016. His first film in a five-picture deal with Marvel is Captain America: Civil War. In 2018, he headlined Black Panther which is about a story of Wakanda. He eventually reprised the role in the film Avengers: Infinity War.
