AVENGERS star Chadwick Boseman has left fans concerned after displaying his drastic weight loss in a new video.
The Black Panther actor, 42, displayed a visibly slimmer frame in a clip he posted on Instagram on Wednesday.
In the clip, Chadwick talked about Operation 42, an initiative he set up to help the hospitals that serve African-American communities during the coronavirus pandemic.
It was named after his breakout film, 42, which tells the story of baseball player Jackie Robinson and the racial challenges he overcame to play in the major league.
However, fans were more concerned about the King of Wakanda's appearance.
One wrote: "I hope your okay, your appearance has changed."
Another asked: "Are you getting skinnier for a movie?"
A third begged: "Dude, I'm all in for this, but please reassure your fan base about your health 'cause I am starting to be kinda worried."
Chadwick's weight loss may be down to his latest role in the TV series The Black Child – based on the book of the same name – in which he plays a slave, alongside rapper Common.
Other projects in the works include Yasuke, in which he plays the first African samurai to swing a sword in Japan.
He's also set to reprise his role as T'Challa in the Black Panther sequel, set for release in May 2022.
The South Carolina native was introduced as T'Challa in 2016's Captain America: Civil War before getting his own solo movie in 2018's Black Panther.
He reprised his superhero role in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
