Following the death of Chadwick Boseman, several “ Black Panther ” fans campaigned to try to convince Marvel Studios to resurrect Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and make him the new protagonist of the franchise.
For those who don’t remember, Killmonger is killed in the original film after a fight with T’Challa, but fans believe he might be brought back somehow to be redeemed from his crimes.
During an interview with People magazine, Jordan himself brought up the subject and said he would be ready to reprise the role.
“This is something very, very touching to my heart for a number of obvious reasons. The actors and the crew behind the film … We have become a family. It would be an honor to return to this role that I loved so much. So if they have called me back to this wonderful universe, I am with open arms.
The star also reflected on Boseman’s death and made it clear that he would still be the true King of Wakanda.
“Last year was very difficult for all of those who lost it. he [Chadwick] it was very close to me and meant a lot to the franchise. What happened was devastating and no one can replace it. “
Chadwick Boseman’s legacy will certainly be preserved in the long-awaited sequel, as his character will not carry over.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that there will never be another actor playing T’Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He says filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Marvel Studios are rushing forward with the franchise and will explore the rest of Wakanda, the fictional country we were first introduced to in the great Marvel franchise.
“A lot of the comics and the first movie are the world of Wakanda. Wakanda is a place to explore more with characters and different subcultures. This has always been and from the start the main theme of the next story, ”he said.
“We’re not going to have a Chadwick in CGI and we’re not going to rephrase T’Challa. Ryan Coogler is working really hard now on the screenplay with all the respect, love, and genius he has, which gives us comfort, so it was always about promoting the mythology and inspiration of Wakanda. There is also the task of honoring and respecting the continuing learning and teaching of Chad.
The cameras started working in June 2021, with the possibility of new contractual agreements between the actors.
Salary adjustments, if properly formalized, will always provide additional compensation to actors and upper echelon members of the technical team (such as the director, screenwriter and producers), if the film is released on the platform. Disney +.
