Fans of films all around the globe were shocked earlier last week when news about the death of Chadwick Boseman surfaced. Perhaps most famous for his role as the Black Panther in MCU’s first ethnically diverse film. Chadwick undoubtedly helped pave a path for revolutionary change in the genre of superhero films. The actor went as far as sticking to his African accent for the entirety of the film.
Chadwick Boseman however passed away due to a four-year-long fight with colon cancer. Boseman’s co-star from the Black Panther film Micheal J. Fox has now shared an emotional post for his fallen co-star. Fox wrote that he knew Boseman from when he was just 16 years old and he wished he had spent more time with his big brother when he was still around. Jordan played the iconic and much-loved villain Killmonger who was also The Black Panther for a brief while. The actor wrote that he cannot summon words to truly express his feelings.
He added saying, “One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked, and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with 'All My Children' when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. "You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create a legacy. And whether you've known it or not… I've been watching, learning, and constantly motivated by your greatness.”
“But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family, your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture, and humanity," he added.
