Michael B. Jordan Says He Would Be Open To Returning For ‘Black Panther 2’ If Requested
There is no doubt that “Black Panther” was definitely one of the greatest films in the Marvel universe when it rolled back in 2018. Following the death of franchise star Chadwick Boseman, many fans haven’t thought much about the sequel while they continue to mourn. Still, the topic of who would return for the second film continues to be a hot topic.
During a recent interview with People, Michael B. Jordan spoke about his partnership with the International WELL Building Institute and its WELL Health-Safety Rating, and the question of returning to Black Panther 2 arose.
When asked if he would return to repeat his role as Erik “Killmonger” Stevens, he said, “This is very, very important to me for many obvious reasons. [I] I’ve had a very difficult year losing someone close to me. And what that means for this franchise is that it was devastating. “
He continued, “But to be in a character in this world that I loved to play and work with [writer/director Ryan Coogler] and all that good stuff, it’s family. We started a family there. To be able to be back in this world is something that I think will always be on the table in some way. “
Fans of the film know that its character Killmonger died at the end of the film. So it would be interesting to see the plot if he returned in the sequel.
Michael also spoke about his other upcoming roles, including his directorial debut for “Creed III”. As we previously reported, MJB’s co-star Tessa Thompson confirmed that he would direct the upcoming film.
He also expressed enthusiasm for his roles on the upcoming Without Remorse and Journal for Jordan projects.
