Great actor, did justice to a man like Jackie Robinson. As a comic book fan since I was a kid I can say that he put so much heart into the role of Black Panther and brought a hero to life. RIP

Terribly sad news for a man with what should have been his whole life in front of him. Terrific actor and hopefully as terrific of a person. Prayers to his family.

My mother also passed from colon cancer. I’m not sure what type he had but I hope it motivates people to schedule a colonoscopy. Prayers for his loved ones.

This is so sad!
I want to put my own message on here, please everyone realize that colon cancer is no longer old person’s cancer it has taken way too many younger people over the last decade or so. One of the main reason is that by the time younger person is diagnosed they are in the advanced stages. This is not my personal opinion but our son’s oncologist said this at the time our son was diagnosed so this is personal to me as we lost him 9 years ago and he was only 32.

My mum had it twice. Thought she beat it for 10 years then it got her again. She lived with an iliostomy bag for 25 years. She was my hero and my best friend.
Shawn Wilson wrote
Chadwick filmed Black Panther, Infinity War, End Game, 21 Bridges and other work all while in stage 4 of colon cancer. I can’t even imagine, yet so many people didn’t know and couldn’t tell. What a champion.
Farrell Duplain wrote
It’s sad. I was 40 when I found out I had colon cancer. But I was one of the lucky ones. Everyone after the age of 35 should start getting colonoscopies because younger and younger people are getting it. And usually if you wait til you find out you have a problem its too late.

This sucks great actor I’m probably the best superhero interpretation in a movie now I can only see him this black panther . Real life super villain that not even Comic Book Heroes can beat I hope we find a cure for all different kinds of cancers soon.

Hey Josh Sample why did you delete your comment ? Realized how pathetic it was to be jealous of man who recently passed from colon cancer?

Very sad, and I don’t mean to be political here cause it’s really not the place. However, skimming through here looking at the comments and clicking on people and noticed just how diverse the ethnicity of the people saying how sorry they are to here about this black man.
Makes me think that maybe there isn’t such a race problem, but a media corruption problem. Open your eyes people and see that it’s not black and white hate, it’s propaganda making us hate.
