The 33-year-old added that he wished they had more time and stated that the "21 Bridges" actor's death made him aware of how time was short. The "Just Mercy" star made it known that he would keep upholding Boseman's legacy for a long time to come.

The world learned of Boseman's passing after his family announced in an official Twitter statement that he died of a four-year fight with colon cancer.

Back in 2018, Boseman gave an interview about their characters in "Black Panther," where he shared that it took much effort for Jordan to get into a villain's character.

The "Avengers: Infinity War" actor died at the age of 43 in his home. Boseman was surrounded by his loved ones when he passed on.

He was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but he kept it a private affair while showing his exceptional ability in Hollywood.
