Black Panther Fans Worried for Chadwick Boseman's Health After Dramatic Weight Loss | 22 Words

Chadwick Boseman, one of the stars of the film Black Panther has recently been hitting the headlines for his dramatic weight loss. It seems as though the actor might be going through a difficult time at the moment as the possible reasons for this change an appearance have recently been revealed.

Read on to see the video that has raised immense concern amongst Boseman's fans...

Black Pather completely revolutionized the film industry.

Back in 2018, Black Panther became the talk of the town as it hit all major big-screens.

We'd never seen anything like this before.

Marvel's superhero movie brought cultural importance to the forefront of a storyline while still maintaining the classic "hero vs villain" trope.

And even outside of the storyline, this movie broke barriers.

With black talent spread across the entire cast and production, Black Panther became more than just a social talking point. It became an artistic celebration of black culture.

In the past, we have struggled to see such overwhelming representation.

The genre typically upholds traditional superhero visuals, as seen with Superman, Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, and Batman, just to name a select few...

But Black Panther saw a whole new story brought to life.

A culture that was once seen as other, brought about celebration in a way that actually brought audiences together to share their love for the genre.

And one of the main reasons for this was the cast members...

In such a strong line-up of actors and actresses, we saw the fusion of old and new black actors including Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Letitia Wright.

But the star of the show was none other than Chadwick Boseman.

The Guardian described him as a man who is helping to "[open] up people's minds."

The forty-two-year-old plays the character, Black Panther.

Even though Boseman made an appearance in Captain America: Civil War prior to this blockbuster, no one really acknowledged the talent and drive behind his character.

That's why he talked about the pressure that came about with such a big role.

He explained how most of it was "brought on himself." "It’s not like it’s actually coming from outside. I think we all placed that pressure on ourselves with this cos we knew what the opportunity was. Everyone knew this was something that had not been done before."

"So you have to get it right."

But it was more than just mental pressure as you will see in his most recent video. Keep scrolling for the full clip.

Boseman had to bulk up before filming the movie.

As with any other superhero piece, Black Panther's characters were very toned and fit.

Boseman was no different.

After being accustomed to such a look, fans were concerned about the actor's health after they saw his most recent social media post.

Even though Boseman seems pretty happy and excitable, fans have pointed out that he doesn't look well...

As the star was celebrating Major League Baseball's "Jackie Robinson Day" with his fans, people flocked to social media platforms to express their concerns. The video has since been deleted from his actual Instagram, but we have the footage.

Twitter was brimming with the discussion:

This user followed up this tweet writing, "...He looks emaciated."

Lots of them sent him well-wishes...

Like this user.

Others defended his privacy...

Fans helpfully pointed out that Boseman was not a public person when it came to revealing personal details.

But what people failed to take into consideration is this...

Some people pointed out that Boseman is actually naturally thin, but because of his exaggerated look in the movie, fans are comparing the looks as opposed to putting things into perspective.

Another possible reason is this...

Even though Boseman is set to star in the upcoming Black Panther movie in 2022, he is preparing for other roles in between.

And one of them is for The Black Child.

Even though details for that said film have not yet been released, the story follows people from the slave-era of Africa so it could require severe weight loss in order to fulfill the role properly.

Here's the video:

Nonetheless, we hope Chadwick Boseman is well and continues thriving, doing what he does best. Keep your eyes peeled for The Black Child and Black Panter II. If you want to see some more superhero-related content, keep scrolling...
