Chadwick Boseman’s fan page wrote about his later years: “Chadwick underwent countless surgeries and chemotherapy sessions when filming Marshall, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and many others.”

When hearing the death of Boseman, fans reminisced about his public appearances over the past four years. On the red carpet of Avengers: Endgame in 2019, he became thinner beside other top stars.

Recent photos and videos on social media made audiences realize a little bit: “It seemed that he was not well. He always looked painful. But he never revealed his medical condition and still worked hard. He deserved respect.”

In June, an alleged photo of Boseman covering his face in a wheelchair on the way to the emergency hospital in Los Angeles went viral online. The audience became worried: “Are you okay?”. But then there was no information until August 28.

Before his death, Chadwick Boseman spent 17 years pursuing the acting career. He was considered to be an actor having a beautiful appearance with a charming smile and diverse transformation abilities. The popularity of the Marvel movie universe made him best known for his role as the Black Panther superhero. Let’s recall of best movies of Chadwick Boseman.

Chadwick Boseman turned into music legend James Brown in the musical movie Get on Up. This was a convincing role that got many compliments from the audience. In this movie, he co-starred with talented actors such as Nelsan Ellis, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, and Craig Robinson. Get on Up was inspired and praised by critics, especially with Boseman’s incarnation.

Unfortunately, Get on Up was not too successful at the box office and did not impress many prestigious awards. Up to now, fans still consider this was an unfortunate case of Boseman’s career when his talent deserved more recognition.

First appearing in the Marvel universe with Captain America: Civil War (2016), Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther captured the hearts of fans when he transformed into the handsome and dutiful Prince T’Challa. Despite being hurt due to the death of his father, he was still strong enough to plan revenge and bond with other superheroes.

Black Panther joined the Iron Man team in the zero-sum civil war against the US Captain team. The character impressed the Marvel fan community because of its mighty Black Panther armor and sharp claws made of vibranium, the world’s most powerful metal in the Marvel universe.

Chadwick Boseman stunned on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in 2018 when the film Black Panther hit theaters. The magazine rated the film as “a revolutionary” and the Black Panther character as a “radical superhero”. The image of Boseman showing his chest was also very impressive. It fully demonstrated the charm of a black man: wild, strong, and brave. The newspaper cover was in black and white tones to honor the beauty of black skin. The film gained a huge success grossing $ 1.3 billion at the box office and won 3 Oscars.

Boseman’s roles often associated with black feats and honored blacks on screen and in real life. He himself was also a black actor with a breakthrough career. Coincidentally, Thurgood Marshall’s character had a skinny body, so Boseman’s appearance at that time matched the character. He was no longer a muscle actor like when he played Black Panther.
