Letitia Wright Paid Homepage to Chadwick Boseman With Her Outfit at Mexican Premiere Night

He is greatly missed.

Don't mind us, we'll just be tearing up in the corner after seeing the heartfelt tribute that actress Letitia Wright paid to her late Black Panther co-star Chadwick Boseman. Wright had pretty much everyone sobbing while at the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiere in Mexico. And when you see the way she commemorated his passing, you'll probably well up too. 

An eagle-eyed fan caught the tribute and shared it on Twitter. "Letitia Wright repping Chadwick Boseman on her heart tonight in Mexico for #WakandaForever premiere," @NFlyer94 wrote on November 9, 2022.

Did you catch what Wright is wearing? Not only is the outfit super chic, but she also has Boseman's initials, CB, on her jacket. So sweet! 

For the uninformed, Boseman passed away in August 2020 after battling colon cancer for years in secret, the New York Times reports. A gifted actor, Boseman won over fans in roles like "Marshall," "Da 5 Bloods," and yes — "Black Panther." His passing was tragic, and left a hole in both the heart of the fans and in the franchise. So it's understandable that Wright wanted to do something to keep Bosemon's memory alive. 

This wasn't the first time that Wright honored Boseman's memory. At another press event for the sequel, Wright wore a similar outfit to the one that Boseman wore to the 2018 Academy Awards, People reports.

She also hit the "Wakanda forever" pose while on the red carpet — just like Boseman did so many years ago.The two played siblings in the film, making these gestures that much more special. 

People in the comments section were emotional. "This got my crying so hard," @clussy1 wrote. "She will represent both him, THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME!" @cxhempire exclaimed. "I just know he is so proud,  love him always," @vaeugh commented.

Is someone cutting onions in here because we're totally tearing up?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit theaters on November 11.
