Chadwick Boseman’s former co-stars and fans over the weekend took to social media to share their heartfelt tributes honoring the one-year anniversary of his death. The late actor, who was beloved to millions of people and best known for the 2018 superhero film ‘Black Panther,’ passed away at only 43 years of age on August 28, 2020 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.


Months after his death, his memory continued to be honored through posthumous awards and numerous tributes reflecting the profound impact Chadwick had not only on the film industry, but on fans and young people who looked up to him as a true inspiration.

Chadwick was also the first black superhero to get his own standalone film in the Marvel ‘Black Panther’, and was set to appear in a sequel to ‘Black Panther’ due in 2022. The ‘Black Panther’ star left a glorious legacy behind him and just last weekend, social media lit up with a number of countless tributes/posts from fans, co-stars from Marvel Cinematic Universe and others.

Boseman’s Marvel co-star Lupita Nyong’o shared a heartfelt tribute for the star with a picture of herself and Boseman sharing a laugh. “I did not know that I could miss both his laughter and his silence in equal measure. I do. I do… One year after his passing, the memory of @chadwickboseman remains this alive in me,” Nyong’o wrote.

Michael B. Jordan also took to Instagram to share a tribute to his Black Panther co-star. “Not a day goes by bro… Love and miss you but I know you still with us,” Jordan wrote.

The official Twitter handle of Marvel Studios shared a photo of Chadwick. The caption read, “Honoring our friend, our inspiration and our King, Chadwick Boseman.”

Viola Davis shared a photo from the set of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Boseman received a posthumous Screen Actors Guild Award and his first Oscar nomination for the Netflix film, which was final live-action role.

“This day last year you left this earth and us. Man you are missed!!! ???❤,” Davis wrote in the caption.

Boseman’s Marshall costar Josh Gad re-shared the screenshot of one of the final text messages he received from the late star, where the late actor reflected on a rainy day in Los Angeles. “Not a day goes by one year later, where it doesn’t still hurt. But in the darkness, he always reminds us of the light. He was an angel on this planet and is now a Saint on high. Love you and miss you more than ever… forever,” Gad wrote.

Others that paid tribute to the star include;

Mark Ruffalo, the Bruce Banner and Hulk actor also took his Twitter account and remembered the star, “Can’t believe how fast time has gone. Thinking of you today, @chadwickboseman.”

A unique actor, director, writer, and producer who played many American icons throughout his career and became an icon himself. His legacy will continue to live on forever.”
