OPPDATERT: Michael B. Jordan, som i Black Panther spiller Erik Stevens alias Killmonger, minnes Chadwick Boseman. «Du er min storebror, men jeg fikk aldri en ordentlig sjanse til å fortelle deg det. Heller ikke å virkelig gi deg dine blomster mens du var her», skriver 33-åringen. «Jeg skal vie resten av mine dager til å leve på den måten du gjorde.» Les innlegget nedenfor – og se hva andre kolleger skriver nederst på denne siden.»

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.

The true power of @ChadwickBoseman was bigger than anything we saw on screen. From the Black Panther to Jackie Robinson, he inspired generations and showed them they can be anything they want — even super heroes. Jill and I are praying for his loved ones at this difficult time.

Black Panther spilte inn 1,3 milliarder dollar (ca. 10 milliarder kroner) på kino.
Blockbusteren ble den nest mest innbringende filmen i 2018… Den mest innbringende filmen med svart regissør noensinne… Den tredje mest innbringende filmen i USA noensinne… Den niende mest innbringende filmen på verdensbasis noensinne.
Hvil i fred Chadwick Boseman
