Michael B Jordan pens moving tribute for 'Black Panther' brother Chadwick Boseman: I wish we had more time

Hollywood star Michael B Jordan, paid an emotional tribute to his late 'big brother' and 'Black Panther' co-star Chadwick Boseman. Taking to his social media handle, the star fondly remembered his co-star whom he knew since the beginning of his career at the age of 16.


Jordan, who played villain Erik Killmonger opposite Boseman's T'Challa, wrote in an Instagram post that he is unable to find the words to express his feelings.

"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," he said.

Before 'Black Panther', Boseman made a name for himself by playing iconic black historical figures like baseball star Jackie Robinson in '42' (2013), singer-songwriter James Brown in 'Get on Up' (2014) and the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in 'Marshall' (2017).

Jordan further said the legends and heroes Boseman played on screen 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," he wrote in his post, which included several photos of the two together.

He went on to add, "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."

Jordan ended his tribute with his character Killmonger's famous line from 'Black Panther', "'Is this your king!?'"

"Yes. he. is! Rest In Power Brother."

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.


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.


Besides Joardan, 'Black Panther' director Ryan Coogler, and co-stars Angela Bassett, Sterling K Brown, including 'Avengers' stars Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett JohanssonChris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Holland, Denzel Washington, among several others mourned Boseman's passing this past weekend.
