“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.

“From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilsons Ma Raineys 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 TChalla to life in Black Panther.”

Boseman had not talked openly about his diagnosis. It is thought he married his long-term partner, the singer Taylor Simone Ledward, earlier this year. The couple had no children.
