This year has seen an over-pouring of unprecedented crisis. The ongoing pandemic has resulted in the loss of lives of thousands of people. Just when things seemed to have been taking a turn for the better, the world was witness to some more devastating news – the untimely demise of actor Chadwick Boseman.
In addition to working and producing magnificent titles, Boseman had been fighting colon cancer for the past four years. He was most widely known for his role in Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’. Apart from this character, he also donned various avatars in 42, 21 Bridges and Da 5 Bloods.
In this time of grief, fans from all over the planet have been sending support messages for his family.
Boseman had taken the MCU by storm after his charismatic portrayal of T’Challa in Black Panther. Marvel Studios took to Twitter to express their sorrow and said, “Our hearts are broken and our thoughts are with Chadwick Boseman’s family. Your legacy will live on forever. Rest In Peace.”
“Chadwick’s passing is absolutely devastating. He was our T’Challa, our Black Panther, and our dear friend. Each time he stepped on set, he radiated charisma and joy, and each time he appeared on screen, he created something truly indelible,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios.
Feige concluded by saying, “He embodied a lot of amazing people in his work, and nobody was better at bringing great men to life. He was as smart and kind and powerful and strong as any person he portrayed. Now he takes his place alongside them as an icon for the ages. The Marvel Studios family deeply mourns his loss, and we are grieving tonight with his family.”
The Marvel Universe announced its entry into Fortnite with a Chapter 2 Season 4 battle pass. The battle pass will feature eight Marvel character skins. Each will come with a special emote that will highlight their distinct superhero strength.
