Boseman had been battling aggressive colon cancer for four years, but as The Hollywood Reporter reported, the actor's delicate state of health was only known to those closest to him and he had not even told the Marvel executives with whom he was working to start production on 'Black Panther 2'.

In fact, as the article reveals, Kevin Feige, CEO of Marvel Studios, learned of the actor's situation in an email sent the same Friday. When he read it an hour later, Boseman had already passed away.

The sources mentioned by the media explain that the actor was convinced that he was going to recover from his illness, managing to regain his weight, which had been significantly reduced in recent months, and his physical shape for the beginning of the production of Black Panther 2 scheduled for March of this year.

However, the mandatory confinement imposed by the coronavirus crisis, forced the schedule to be postponed until September, giving Chadwick Boseman more time, who continued to hope to get ready to put on the suit of the King of Wakanda again.

At the moment, Marvel and Disney executives continue to try to process the tragic news before making any decisions, but there are already many voices that ask that the Black Panther suit be transferred to another character and that the character King T'Challa will always be owned by the late actor.
