Michael B. Jordan is among the stars finding it difficult to come to terms with the death of Chadwick Boseman.

The actor's death was confirmed on Friday by a statement on his official social media channels, which stated that he was battling colon cancer when he passed at the age of 43.

"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much," his family said in the statement. "From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more- all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T'Challa to life in Black Panther."

A handful of Boseman's "Black Panther" co-stars have expressed their lament since his passing, but Michael B. Jordan, who played Erik Killmonger in the film, has yet to publically address the death.
