Michael B Jordan has THIS to say on the possibility of reprising his role as Killmonger in Black Panther 2
In a recent interview, Michael B. Jordan spoke candidly about the possibility of returning to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as the beloved villain Erik Stevens aka Killmonger for Black Panther 2.
With Chadwick Boseman's untimely death on August 28, 2020, Marvel Studios plans to rightfully honour the late actor's legacy in a respectable manner with Black Panther 2. While it's been confirmed that T'Challa's role will not be recast with no CGI Boseman in the works either, the second instalment will be about delving into the mythology and inspiration of Wakanda.
Ever since Black Panther 2's announcement was made, rumours were rife about Michael B. Jordan reprising his beloved villainous role as Erik Stevens aka Killmonger. In an interview with People, Jordan was asked about the possibility of returning to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) for Black Panther 2. On this, Michael confessed, "That's something that is very, very near and dear to my heart for a lot of obvious reasons. [I] had a really tough year losing somebody close to me. And what that means for that franchise is it was devastating."
However, the 33-year-old actor noted that being in the Black Panther world and essaying Killmonger, a character he loved playing, as well as working with director and writer Ryan Coogler, alongside all that good stuff, "it's family" for the Just Mercy star.
"We created a family over there," Jordan confessed to People while adding that to be able to be in the Black Panther world again is something that will always be on the table, in some capacity.
