A young film actor by the name of Chadwick Boseman just passed away of cancer this week. Like most people, I’m shocked and saddened too. While Chadwick was mostly well-known as Black Panther in Marvel, he got well-known for a few other roles such as “42” in which he played baseball hero Jackie Robinson and in “Get on Up” in which he played the godfather of soul, James Brown for that biopic film.
As for his iconic role as Black Panther, he played that character 4 times. The Black Panther character first got its introduction in “Captain America: Civil War” and then the character appeared in the solo film, “Black Panther” and after that two Avengers films.
I wasn’t that crazy about the “Black Panther” solo film but I liked the Black Panther character in “Civil War” and the two Avengers movies “Infinity War” and “Endgame”. I have seen Chadwick in a few other roles such as “42”, “Get On Up” and “Message From the King”. I thought “Message From the King” was a great movie and it’s a Netflix exclusive too. I haven’t seen “Marshall” yet but I should check it out sometime.
Chadwick was a great talent and was too young to go. He died at 43, he was just my age. A big loss in Hollywood and I never saw this one coming like most. RIP Chadwick and thanks for the entertainment. I should give “Black Panther” another look, though and it’s streamable on Disney Plus which I have.
