The news was brought to everyone’s attention on all his social media pages by what we would assume was his family.

According to the statement, Chadwick had been battling colon cancer that he was diagnosed with back in 2016 at stage 3 and had now progressed to stage 4.

The 43-year-old film star was popularly known for his many characters but especially for the Black Panther.

The Marvel comic book adaptation was particularly special for its wonderful excellence in bringing the world’s first African superhero to life. Rightly so, the movie went to make over a billion dollars in cinemas across the world during its release in 2018.

The news comes just shortly after the world was celebrating the life of basketball legend Kobe Bryant on what would have been his 42nd birthday. All we can say is:
