And what that means for that franchise is it was devastating.” “But being in that world in a character that I loved playing, and working with [writer/director Ryan Coogler] and all that good stuff, it’s family. We created a family over there,” he continues. “So to be able to be in that world again is something that, I think, will always be on the table in some capacity.” (People)

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o recently remembered her late friend and Black Panther co-star. The high-profile Hollywood actress penned deep words about the world losing the immortalized movie icon.

“I write these words from a place of. hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning. I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seem like they have exited before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be – here! … that seem ageless… Chadwick was one of those people.” -Lupita Nyong’o’s Instagram

Michael B. Jordan Remembers Chadwick

Recently, Chadwick’s Black Panther co-star Michael B. Jordan went to his Instagram page to reflect on their close-knit connection. Michael also admitted the shocking death to his on-screen co-star left him shattered.

“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. One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time.” -Michael B. Jordan’s Instagram

Michael took things a bit further by vowing to live the rest of his days like Chadwick.

“Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here. I wish we had more time. I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother” -Michael B. Jordan’s Instagram
