Chadwick Boseman’s Freshest Movies
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman tragically died on August 28, 2020, after a four-year battle with colon cancer. The actor, who broke into the mainstream with an acclaimed performance as baseball legend Jackie Robinson in 42, began in the role that would define him – T’Challa / Black Panther – in Captain America: Civil War, in 2016, and went on to play the character in Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, and Avengers: Infinity War. He also played Thurgood Marshall in Marshall, and James Brown in Get On Up. His latest role was in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, which was released this year; he will appear in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom later this year. Boseman was just 43 at the time of his death. As the world mourns this monumental loss, we’re paying tribute to Boseman with his Freshest film roles.
