“It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”

Chadwick had not publicly spoken about his illness before his death.

However, his passing comes following months of fans worrying for the Marvel star’s health after he was pictured with drastic weight loss.

Back in April, he displayed a slimmer frame while picking up an Apple TV at Best Buy with his wife, Taylor Simone Ledward.

The outing was followed by a video being posted to his Instagram account that alarmed fans with his slender face.
