Marvel Stars React to Chadwick Boseman's Death from Cancer

The stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who starred in the Black Panther movie as T’Challa.

Chadwick sadly lost his battle to colon cancer, his team announced on Friday (August 28), and the tributes are pouring in from all over the world.

Among the first stars of the Marvel franchise to speak out are Brie Larson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Dave Bautista, Don Cheadle, Angela Bassett, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, and Taika Waititi.

Brie wrote in a statement, “Chadwick was someone who radiated power and peace. Who stood for so much more than himself. Who took the time to really see how you were doing and gave words of encouragement when you felt unsure. I’m honored to have the memories I have. The conversations, the laughter. My heart is with you and your family. You will be missed and never forgotten. Rest in power and peace my friend.”

“I was lucky enough to spend some time with @chadwickboseman on the set of The Avengers. I was so struck by his presence. He was the embodiment of the modern man; strong, intelligent, graceful, self-possessed. I am deeply sad to hear of his passing this morning. What a beautiful legacy he created in such a short life.”

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother…”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
