(FOX NEWS) – Chadwick Boseman, an actor who embodied the legendary Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown on his way to becoming the face of the venerable Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe has died. He was 43.

The actor’s death was confirmed Friday by his representative who said the wide-ranging performer died after a bout with colon cancer.

Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.

The native of Anderson, S.C., played the Brooklyn Dodgers’ barrier-breaking star Jackie Robinson in the 2013 film “42,” and played James Brown a year later in “Get On Up.” His blockbuster role in “Black Panther” came in 2018.
