Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has died aged 43 after a four-year fight with colon cancer.
He died at home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante said.
The actor had not revealed his cancer diagnosis to the public.
Many tributes have been paid to Boseman online following the news:
Black Panther – the first major studio superhero movie featuring a predominantly African-American cast – became the ninth highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing film by a black director.
It was also the first superhero film to get an Oscar nomination for best picture.
