Marvel Studios And Kevin Feige Pay Tribute To Chadwick Boseman

Following his tragic death earlier tonight, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios have now issued statements on Chadwick Boseman's passing.

As you’ve surely heard by now, actor Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away earlier tonight at the age of 43. His family confirmed the heartbreaking news just hours ago, revealing that he had been battling colon cancer for several years. Given that he never made his diagnosis public, and continued to work steadily almost right up until his death, it came as a huge shock to everyone to learn that he had passed, and the internet is currently mourning the tremendous loss.

Already, tons of colleagues and notable figures in the industry have paid tribute to the incredibly talented actor and now, both Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige have weighed in with some thoughts of their own – which you can see for yourself via the tweets down below.

While it might have been Marvel – and the MCU – that made Chadwick Boseman a household name and rocketed him to the top of the Hollywood A-list, the actor was much more than just our Black Panther. Indeed, he had a very accomplished career, spanning a whole host of different roles. And if you want a taste of his talents, just check out movies like 42Da 5 Bloods or Get On Up.

No matter what project Boseman found himself in, though, he always delivered solid work and had a very bright future ahead of him, with numerous projects lined up. Including, of course, Black Panther 2. Which only makes this news all the more tragic and devastating, as he had so much more to bring us.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Chadwick Boseman‘s family and friends at this difficult time, and he will be dearly missed.
