RIP King T’Challa

In February 2018, the world was introduced to the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Black Panther. Actor Chadwick Boseman reprised his role as King T’Challa (aka Black Panther) in what was a sequel to both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Later that same year, Boseman would appear as Black Panther in Avengers: Infinity War where he would fall victim to The Snap from Thanos, effectively killing him (and 3 billion others) and wiping T’Challa out of existence. Luckily, in 2019's Avengers: Endgame, the surviving Avengers found a way to reverse The Snap and bring their fallen brothers back, including T’Challa. So, thanks to the magic of movies, Chadwick Boseman’s character was able to defeat death. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a movie.

Sadly, on August 28, 2020, it was announced that Boseman had lost his four year battle against colon cancer. Boseman, who also starred in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 as well as the James Brown biopic Get On Up, was 43 years old when he passed away at his California home with his wife and family by his side. Another young man lost too soon.

Rest in Power Mr. Boseman! Wakanda Forever!
