Boseman’s co-star in Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan, had also paid a touching tribute to his colleague.
Michael played the role of Erik Killmonger, who challenged the Black Panther for the throne of Wakanda in the superhero film. The actor penned a long heartfelt post about how Chadwick's "greatness" motivated him. He also shared pics of the two of them during good times.
"I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug… everything. I wish we had more time."
Michael said one of the last times they had a conversation, Chadwick said they were forever linked.
