The pair portrayed enemies Erik Killmonger and King T'Challa in the 2018 MCU epic, while in real life, it seems Boseman was a huge inspiration to Jordan.
Posting a number of pictures of them together on Instagram yesterday (August 31), he wrote: "I've been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I've been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug...everything.
"I wish we had more time," he continued, before revealing: "One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me.
"You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you've known it or not...I've been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time."
Jordan went on to mention the "legends and heroes" Boseman gave life to on screen, saying they'll "live on forever".
"But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are," he added. "You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.
"I'm gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I'll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes."
He concluded: "I'm dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. "Is this your king!?" Yes . he . is! Rest In Power Brother."
