Among those paying tribute to the iconic actor on social media are his Avengers and Black Panther co-stars.
“What a man, and what an immense talent,” wrote Mark Ruffalo AKA The Hulk. “Brother, you were one of the all time greats and your greatness was only beginning. Lord love ya. Rest in power, King.”
Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt added: “This is such devastating news. We’re praying for his family. The world has lost an immeasurable talent and a great person.”
While Captain America Chris Evans wrote: “Chadwick was special. A true original. He was a deeply committed and constantly curious artist. He had so much amazing work still left to create. I’m endlessly grateful for our friendship.”

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother…”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
