Chris Evans remembers Chadwick Boseman: “I’m absolutely devastated. This is beyond heartbreaking… He was a deeply committed and constantly curious artist. He had so much amazing work still left to create. I’m endlessly grateful for our friendship”
HARRY KNOWLES: Just wow. At some point the year CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR, he had to have learned he had Colon Cancer. Chadwick never ceased being an amazing hero. What a final four years he led. Just amazing. Watching BLACK PANTHER, I’m in awe of the man.
VP Candidate Kamala Harris, who Boseman recently endorsed on his Twitter page: “Heartbroken. My friend and fellow Bison Chadwick Boseman was brilliant, kind, learned, and humble. He left too early but his life made a difference.”
Mark Ruffalo: “It was the highest honor getting to work with you and getting to know you. What a generous and sincere human being.”
Clint Smith, writer at the ATLANTIC: I keep thinking about my 3-year-old in his Black Panther costume. How he wore it almost every day when he got it, refused to take it off. The way he walked around saying “I’m the Black Panther.” How happy it made him. What Chadwick gave us was immeasurable. What an enormous loss.
Martin Luther King III: Chadwick Boseman brought history to life on the silver screen, from Jackie Robinson, James Brown and Thurgood Marshall. As Black Panther, he was also a superhero to many. And despite his 4 year long battle with cancer, he kept fighting and he kept inspiring. He will be missed.
