Woke up in good spirits, with plans to go for a walk and knock out some work, but, much like a lot of times in life, my day got thrown a huge, heartbreaking curveball.
Today, we lost a gem of a human being. There's times in life where certain people's highs and their passings just feel so much closer to home, though you have never actually met them in person. Chadwick was one of those people to me.
Chadwick embodied a real life superhero, to go through those highest of highs in his acting career as sick as he was, knowing all too well that his time with us and with his loved ones would likely be hampered just immediately brings the phrase "He gave us his all and more." to mind
He did all that with the heart of a warrior and always with that gracious smile that could light up a room.
What a lot of people don't know about me is, Chadwick was one of the first in the Marvel universe, let alone the entertainment industry to promote and show love to my works, he played a big hand in helping my work reach the higher ups at Marvel, which ultimately landed me the gig with Endgame.
I made promise to do him proud on Black Panther 2, I'm eternally thankful but now just thinking about that movie hurts, it likely will for a while yet.
It's day such as today that make you take a step back and reflect, life is ever so fleeting. Spend what valuable time we have with the ones we love, not chasing the ones that won't remember us when we're gone.
I don't enjoy swearing much, but fuck cancer.
My condolences to everyone who lost someone due to it and all the strength in the world to the ones battling it.
Rest in power, King. 👑🖤
Just realised this lands on Jack Kirbys birthday he co-created Black Panther
