BREAKING: Chadwick Boseman dies at 43.

Sad news Geeks! Actor Chadwick Boseman, who was the star of Marvel Studios hugely successful Black Panther, has died of colon cancer at age 43.

According to Deadline, his cancer diagnosis was kept private. Boseman died after a four-year battle with cancer, according to a post on his Twitter account. The post said he died at home with his wife and family.

Boseman was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer in 2016, and it had progressed to stage four, the post said.

“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy,” the post said.

Stay tuned for more on this tragic news as it develops.
