Before Black Panther even hit theatres it was the talk of the town. Once it arrived for everyone’s viewing pleasure, it was loved even more and Ryan Coogler was praised for his directing skills and the talk of a sequel was already floating around. According to Metro, serious moves are being made to possibly get none other than Donald Glover to have a part in the second installment.
Donald and his brother Stephen played their part in the first movie bu reading over the script and adding in a few jokes. It seems as though Ryan now was Donald to get in front of the camera for a more serious part. “Ryan 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,” a source told the publication. “One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Donald Glover’s musical alter ego] 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.”
Apparently, the crew behind the film aren’t sure if Erik Killmonger will return in some capacity – since he did die at the end. “They’re still yet to decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity but if he doesn’t it’s likely Gambino may play some kind of villain,” the source added.
