Michael B. Jordan, who played Killmonger in the Marvel blockbuster, shared a photo embracing the late actor. “Not a day goes by bro…,” he captioned the pic. “Love and miss you but I know you still with us.”
Lupita Nyong’o also expressed her loss for her “Black Panther” love interest with a snap of the two stars enjoying a happy moment together. “I did not know that I could miss both his laughter and his silence in equal measure. I do. I do…,” she wrote. “One year after his passing, the memory of @chadwickboseman remains this alive in me.”

Marvel also paid tribute by tweeting: “Honoring our friend, our inspiration, and our King, Chadwick Boseman.”
Viola Davis, who starred with Boseman in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” shared an image of the two on the film’s set and included the note, “This day last year you left this earth and us. Man you are missed!!!”
Production on the sequel to “Black Panther” - entitled “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” - has begun and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said everyone involved in the film feels a responsibility to honor Boseman.
"It's clearly very emotional without Chad," Feige said. "But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We're going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud."
