Boseman, famous for playing the role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wakanda forever died in 2020 after battling stage 4 colon cancer.
The actor was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer four years before his death. News of his death came as a surprise to many and elicited global shock, grief, and reactions as the act never disclosed his health status but rather kept working on groundbreaking movies in the midst of chemotherapy and operations.
