Michael B. Jordan has paid tribute to the late Stan Lee and admitted he's "heartbroken" by the comic book legend's death. 

The 'Black Panther' actor paid tribute to the comic book legend - who died aged 95 on Monday  - and praised him for "changing the face of entertainment" with his Marvel creations.

He said: "[I'm] heartbroken, honestly.

"[He was] 95 years old, he lived a full life. He made an impact on so many different people, literally changed the face of entertainment in so many different ways."

Stan famously had a cameo in almost every Marvel movie made and Michael will always feel "honoured" to have been in 'Black Panther', one of the final films he was involved in.

He added to 'Entertainment Tonight': "He showed people how to dream how to escape the problems that they have and their current situations.

"[He was] so creative, so fun, It's incredible. I feel honoured to be apart of one of the last films he got a chance to be a part of.

"For him to kind of see that come full circle was awesome and something I'll cherish with me for the rest of my life. Rest in peace, Stan Lee. We lost a really really good one."

Michael's tribute follows on from a number already paid by stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in his own line of movies, as well as in the 'Avengers' ensemble movies, wrote on Twitter: "There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!! (sic)"

And 'Deadpool' star Ryan Reynolds simply posted: "Damn... RIP Stan. Thanks for everything. (sic)"

'Iron Fist' actress Rosario Dawson said: "Overwhelmed with love and gratitude for the late, great hero, Stan Lee. Rest In Paradise. Thank you for your imagination, creativity, tenacity, inspiration and love!!! (sic)"
