Sunday, Nov 29, would have been Chadwick Boseman’s 44th birthday. The Black Panther star died in August after battling colon cancer.

Fans and fellow celebrities, including his co-stars, have paid tribute to the late actor to commemorate the day.

Mark Ruffalo, who played Bruce Banner and Hulk in the Avengers films, shared a video on Instagram of Boseman being surprised with a birthday song and cake from the cast and crew of Avengers: Infinity War in 2017.

In the video, Boseman could be seen hugging Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Danai Gurira, while other co-stars such as Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans were seen in the background clapping along.

Ruffalo captioned the post: “Thinking of your passion, love, and your light today, @ChadwickBoseman. Happy Birthday. Wishing we could time travel back to this moment”.

Josh Brolin, who played villain Thanos, responded to Ruffalo’s post with five heart emojis.
