He died at home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side, a statement posted on social media said.
Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but had not made the information public.
The news has left fans and the film world stunned. Get Out director Jordan Peele said it was "a crushing blow".
"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much," his family said in the statement.

This was truly devastating. For a split second I thought it must be April Fool's Day because it seemed so unreal.

I hadn't even known he was battling cancer, though I think most people didn't.

He was an amazing actor and an all around good guy and the world is poorer for not having him in it.

Deeply sad and tragic.  Not only a superb performer but a true gentleman with a big heart.

When Ryan Coogler got the assignment to direct "Black Panther," he watched "Captain America: Civil War," to more familiarize himself with Chadwick and the Black Panther character.  

Coogler relayed this wonderful anecdote about "Civil War."  Evidently Chadwick Boseman and John Kani, felt it was ridiculous than T'Challa and his father T'Chaka would converse between themselves in English.  So Kani, whose first lanaguage was Xhosa, translated all the previously English dialog for their scenes into Xhosa and taught Boseman, who already had a fairly good faux Xhosa accent from his previous film "Message From A King," how to correctly and grammatically pronounce all the Xhosa dialog.  Coogler was deeply impressed that Boseman took the time and effort to do that, and it cemented Coogler's strong respect for Boseman and his eagerness to work with him.
