Michael B. Jordan to Return as Killmonger in Black Panther 2.January 29, 2019
Last year, when Marvel's Black Panther was released to the world, it broke many box office records and at first became the highest grossing domestic Marvel film to date and is revealed to still hold that title.
The film opened the eyes of billions of people around the world and told an exceptionally true story about real black issues in a fictional and albeit the most technologically advanced nation in the world Wakanda. Just yesterday, the film made history and became the first comic book film to win a SAG award or Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
Despite a few people stating the film was not as good as people say and the awards and record-breaking the film did and people saying that a lot of these complaints are simply racial jealousy and hate toward blacks, the film did so well domestically with $631M and made well over $1.2B world wide, a part two film is said to be on the way and a familiar character is set to be returning for the sequel.
Black Panther 2 is set to be coming pretty soon and it has just been revealed that none other than Michael B. Jordan will be returning to reprise his role as Killmonger and all other people will be returning.
While attending the SAG Awards, Angela Bassett, who played the mother to T'Challa with Ramonda, and her husband, actor Courtney B. Vance, offer everyone will return for the sequel.
"I would assume so," Angela Bassett replies to questioning if everybody will be back.
"Yes. Just go ahead and say it. Yes. Everyone will be there," Courtney B. Vance interjected.
"Everyone will be back, I mean... and maybe they can bring Michel back," Bassett said.
Vance added, "Just yes. Yes. Including Michael B. Yes."
Killmonger's return is not really surprising. Many people were strongly raving for Killmonger to return including myself. Killmonger was crowned the King of the film by many fans and people even started a hashtag stating that Killmonger was right or his actions were totally right.
Killmonger's return is needed in my opinion. He was the highlight of the whole film.
