    "From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more- all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honour of his career to bring King T'Challa to life in Black Panther," they added.

    The family thanked his fans and well-wishers for their best wishes and requested for privacy in these "difficult times".

    Boseman was best known for playing superhero king T'Challa aka Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was last seen in Spike Lee's "Da 5 Bloods", which released on Netflix in June this year.
