I thought he was talking about the death of the Black Panther.
Chadwick Boseman immediately appealed to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the screen, he fully corresponded to the image of the Black Panther – dexterous, brave, a little arrogant, with royal habits. Perfect match for the comic!
But in 2016, Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer. In 2020, the actor died – he died from complications associated with the disease.
Chadwick kept his health a secret, continuing to act in films even during treatment. And in 2019, it seems that he hinted at his imminent death in an interview. Perhaps the actor knew that he was unlikely to appear in the second part of “Black Panther” and tried to say something. There is another version: the journalist asked if Boseman’s hero survived in order to bring the actor to clean water. Here is the video, and below is the translation of the interview:
What can you say about Black Panther 2?
– I’m dead.
“No, we are not ready for your death, Chadwick.
“But it’s true… I’m dead.
Later it became known that the director showed the actor the script for the second part of Black Panther in advance. Therefore, Chadwick really knew everything: about the plot of the film, the fate of the character and the time that he had left.
On November 29, Chadwick Boseman would have turned 46 years old. Bright memory. Wakanda forever.
