Actor Chadwick Boseman has died after a brave four-year fight with colon cancer. He was 43.

Boseman will be forever remembered as the super hero Black Panther (2018) in the Oscar nominated film, and several of The Avengers films. His courage can be measured in that during the shoots of those films he was struggling with cancer, often undergoing chemotherapy.

He came to fame with his fine performance in 42 (2014), the fine film about baseball legend Jackie Robinson. Seen this year in likely Oscar candidate Da Five Bloods (2020), he had fast become a major star.

His death feels sudden for many who were not aware he was ill, but for four years he had fought this devastating disease.

The bright light Marvel Universe is now darker.
