Tributes have been pouring in following the tragic death of Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman at the age of just 43, with his Marvel co-stars among them.

The Avengers cast led the tribute to the star, who suffered from colon cancer for four years before his death.

Mark Ruffalo, who plays The Incredible Hulk, wrote: "It was the highest honour getting to work with you and getting to know you.

"What a generous and sincere human being.

"You believed in the sacred nature of the work and gave your all. Much love to your family. And much love from all of us left here."

Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, added: "Gonna miss you mate. Absolutely heartbreaking.

"One of the kindest most genuine people I've met. Sending love and support to all the family xo RIP."

Brie Larson simply shared a picture of herself with Boseman captioned with a broken heart emoji. In another picture, she wrote: "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 honoured 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."

Spider-Man star Tom Holland said: "Chadwick, you were even more of a hero off screen than on. A role model not only to me on set, but to millions of others around the world.

"You brought joy and happiness to so many and I'm proud to have been able to call you a friend. RIP Chadwick"

Jeremy Renner wrote: "Chadwick is an inspiration, a warrior with a big kind heart that I'll never forget. I'm so deeply heartbroken by his passing. Sending love to the Boseman family ... R.I.P."

A statement from his family confirmed his death last night, saying: "A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,

"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 honour of his career to bring King T'Challa to life in Black Panther."

RIP Chadwick Boseman.
