Was having surgeries and chemo in between filming. Diagnosed in 2016. poor sod. Dreadful that. Genuinely shocked and upset me.

He was amazing in the role of Black Panther and had such a career ahead of him. Very sad news.

That's dreadful. Absolutely no age. Really brings it home when healthy looking people get taken in the prime of their life. Its a fragile thread.

My eldest is going to be in pieces. Kobe hit her hard and I can imagine this will be the same.

And it goes without saying- strawberry float cancer.

Thought this was a joke for a minute when I saw it on Facebook. My wife and I watched 42 last night (great film by the way). Absolutely shocked. Such a loss.

I didn't know too much about him personally but i was very sad to wake up to this just now. He was a young man at his prime, taken away by cancer.




There's a previously unpublished short interview with him discussing why Black Panther needed a black director.

What a thing to wake up to. :(

It's awful news, I'm glad he was at least able to keep it private this whole time like he obviously wanted to.

I was awake last night when the news first broke. Such a weird feeling when I saw it. Was absolutely amazing to see Black Panther become a fully fledged movie. RIP.

Ah man, I just realised he played James Brown in Get On Up. I didn't know who he was at the time, but he was fantastic in it. So much so that I was convinced just now that the real James Brown played his older self in it, despite having died 8 years prior. :slol:

Wow that's shocking, I've still not seen Black Panther but he stood out in Civil War and the Avengers films. So sad, because he really seemed so full of life.
