Boseman, who appeared in the MCU as Black Panther, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2014, but decided not to make the news public.

"From the Black Panther to Jackie Robinson, he inspired generations and showed them they can be anything they want - even super heroes".

"Chadwick was special. A true original".

Angela Bassett, who played T'Challa's mother Ramonda in Black Panther, wrote a handsome, lengthy tribute on Instagram, sharing her memories of working closely with him, and of meeting him several years before they would eventually share the screen.

Expressions of shock and despair poured in late Friday from fellow actors, athletes, musicians, Hollywood titans, fans and politicians.

Beginning his career in television in the early 2000s, Boseman made his big screen debut in 2008's The Express: The Ernie Davis Story before going on to star in the likes of 42, Draft Day, Get On Up and Gods of Egypt.

Starting with Marshall, where Boseman played American lawyer and civil rights activist Thurgood Marshall, the actor was working in front of the camera knowing his cancer diagnosis. She shared a message hailing his "talent, spirit, heart and authenticity". Mark Ruffalo said "it was the highest honour getting to work with you and getting to know you".

Angela Bassett, co-star in Black Panther: "During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something".

In other films, Chadwick Boseman embodied real life figures. Thank you Chadwick for all that you gave to us in this too short a time. "Rest now, sweet prince". Chadwick Boseman will be missed dearly, and our thoughts go out to his family and friends during this hard time. Rest easy, rest in power and in peace, Chadwick. "Your legacy will live on forever".

Actor Octavia Spencer: "We've lost a great one".
