Albeit Chadwick Boseman is gone, but not forgotten as he is being honored By MTV With The “Hero For The Ages” Award.
However, Chadwick’s death hit harder because we learned through his passing that he had been suffering in silence the entire time. During his biggest moments, he was battling colon cancer that would ultimately take his life. Chadwick brought joy to many portraying black icons on the screen, but his star as the Black Panther was seen by everyone across the world. MTV honored Chadwick in a special way during their recent Movie & TV Awards: Greatest Of All Time event. The award was presented by Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle, who worked beside Chadwick in all of his Marvel movies and were mentors to the actor. The award is earned by those whose heroism on-screen was only surpassed by the true hero they were off-screen and Chadwick earned it in every way possible.
