    Terrible. Cancer is so relentless no matter what your age you are.
    He will be missed as he takes his next journey.

    Man that is way too young. And no I had no idea he was fighting colon cancer. Condolences to his family and friends.

    Very sad. Black Panther is one of my favourite Marvel movies.

    The official public release on his Twitter account mentions his wife (but not by name).

    Issuing a blanket rule: If anyone is so tasteless as to ask about new actors to play T'Challa, you're eating a permanent ban.

    I think T'Challa's character should be properly honored in the next Black Panther film as dying of disease and passing on the mantle to Shuri or some other appropriate family member who will carry on the "Black Panther" name.

    There's no reason to recast T'Challa, his character was beloved by the fans, the actor: Chadwick Boseman is beloved as well.

    I think Disney/Marvel should acknowledge it and move on.

    For the rest of my days, T'Challa's live action visage will always be Chadwick Boseman in my mind. I wouldn't want it to change, that would be dishonoring Chadwicks hard work on screen.

    Such heartbreaking news. He was still so young and had so many wonderful opportunities ahead of him.

    His family and friends must be devastated. :(

    He made the last two Avengers movies plus Civil War and Black Panther while battling cancer.

    That is true strength.

    He will certainly be missed by Marvel fans and by fans of his other movies.

    A friend send this to me and it was the first thing I woke up to.....
    I never knew him as an actor before Black Panther, and the character was quite unknown to me. But his performance instantly made me like T'Challa a lot. In his role as that character he will be missed, but quite likely not as much as the role he played in the lives of his family and friends. Safe journey Chadwick, rest in peace.

    Jesus fuck what a champion, realising you may die very young, but still press on with movie roles of a lifetime and conquer the world before blinking out (and a few months ago we had pictures of Mr. Boseman looking very emaciated and on hindsight that was clear signs of cancer advancing/treatment side effects).

    Taken far too young, so much unrealised potential. Such a sad loss. Condolences to and thoughts with his family and loved ones.
