• CNET

Tributes to Chadwick Boseman continued to pour in Saturday following news that the actor died Friday at age 43. Boseman, who starred in Marvel's Black Panther and Netflix's Da 5 Bloods, was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016.

"Chadwick was such an elegant man with great integrity and tremendous talent," tweeted brothers Anthony and Joseph Russo, who directed him in 2018 blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War and 2019's Avengers: Endgame. "He inspired an entire generation to stand up and be king. Honor him by emulating him -- show kindness and love to others. Share your talents in ways that impact. Always strive to be a light in the darkness." 

The actor died in his Los Angeles home alongside his wife and other members of his family, Boseman's publicist, Nicki Fioravante, informed the Associated Press. Boseman had never spoken publicly about his battle with cancer.
