Donald Glover And Michael B Jordan ‘In Talks’ For ‘Black Panther’ Sequel
| Last updated
The last few months have been huge for Marvel fans, as they've been treated to not one, not two but three massive films in Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2.
It's tough keeping up with all the storylines and characters, but no one's complaining because, let's face it, they're all epic movies. But now we've been treated to news that work is already underway for a sequel to Black Panther.
According to the Metro, director Ryan Coogler is in talks with Michael B Jordan (who played N'Jadaka/Erik 'Killmonger' Stevens) and Donald Glover (who has just had the Star Wars spin-off premiere) feature in the second chapter for Wakanda.
An insider told the news site: "Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther's sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres.
"One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino.
"Nothing is set in stone but 'informal talks' [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen."
That would be, in a word, juicy. Apparently, Glover is being sized up to play the villain, but the real question is how Jordan would be involved.
The Creed actor played the bad guy in the first film and was stabbed by the Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman. He refuses to be healed and opts to die as a free man - so how the hell would they bring him back?
Unless, stay with me here, he didn't actually die.
Killmonger actually came back from the dead in the comic books - so there's definitely scope for him to be featured in the second film.
It was revealed in March that a sequel was on the cards when Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly: "Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that.
"One of the favourite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two.
"There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one."
Obviously we're in very early stages so we have no clue when this second instalment will be ready for our waiting eyes, but at least we know one is on the horizon.
