Avengers star Chadwick Boseman steps out for first time after fans worried about extreme weight loss

CHADWICK Boseman was spotted for the first time on Monday, since fans were concerned by his dramatic weight loss.

The 42-year-old Black Panther star stepped out in a DIY mask near to his home in the exclusive neighborhood of Los Feliz, in Los Angeles.

The Avengers actor got some fresh air and exercise, as he carried a hiking stick and headed to a cafe to get a take-out smoothie.

His frame was hidden beneath a baggy hoodie and jogging bottoms.

It comes after fans expressed concern earlier this month at Boseman's apparent weight loss when he posted a video on line.

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.

The Sun cannot confirm the claims made by fans regarding the actor's appearance.

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.
