Even Marvel boss Kevin Feige didn’t know, receiving an pressing e mail simply an hour earlier than the actor’s loss of life.
Photographers had snapped the star wanting thinner than typical, earlier this yr.
And based on The Hollywood Reporter, a supply near Boseman stated the actor had been “convinced” till per week earlier than he died that he would beat most cancers, and will get again into superhero form earlier than beginning work on Black Panther 2.
