The 42-year old star was remembered by the members of the MCU family including Dave Bautista.

Captain America​ star Chris Evans wrote, "I’m absolutely devastated. This is beyond heartbreaking. Chadwick was special. A true original. He was a deeply committed and constantly curious artist. He had so much amazing work still left to create. I’m endlessly grateful for our friendship. Rest in power, King".

Mark Ruffalo, who played The Hulk, hailed Chadwick as "one of the all-time greats".

War Machine actor Don Cheadle, who shares the same birthday as Chadwick, tweeted that he's going to miss his dear brother.

On Instagram, Thor star Chris Hemsworth shared that his loss is "absolutely heartbreaking".

Brie Larson, who played Captain Marvel, also paid tribute to her dear friend. "Chadwick was someone who radiated power and peace. Who stood for so much more than himself. Who took the time to really see how you were doing and gave words of encouragement when you felt unsure. I’m honored to have the memories I have. The conversations, the laughter. My heart is with you and your family. You will be missed and never forgotten. Rest in power and peace my friend."

"Your passing has hit me hard," said Zoe Saldana who plays Gamora on the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers movies.

Angela Bassett, who played his mother in Black Panther, recalled their long-standing connection.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother...”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar...”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
