“Deadpool & Wolverine” production designer Ray Chan, best known for being the longtime supervising art director for Marvel Studios, has died, the company announced on its website. His cause of death has not been disclosed.

“Ray was first and foremost a good friend to everyone at Marvel Studios. He was a talented collaborator who brought creativity and attention to detail to every frame of every movie he worked on, and who was able to bring out the best in each department he worked with,” Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito said in a statement. “He was the nicest human being and was such a pleasure to work with, hugely generous, and the kind of person who could take the seed of an idea and turn it into something beautiful. We are devastated by his passing. He will be missed by everyone at Marvel, and our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends.”

Chan first joined Marvel Studios on “Thor: The Dark World” as supervising art director and went on to be supervising art director on many other Marvel Studios movies, including “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Doctor Strange,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
