After 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.
In an interview with Sirius XM Radio, Jordan was asked on a scale of 1 to 10 about the possibility of returning afterwards.
However, the star threw a bucket of cold water at the idea, saying the odds would be only 2-10.
“I wouldn’t say zero, you know what I mean, do you?” Nunc never say, I can’t predict the future. But I also can’t say 8 because that would be a little improbable, so I say 2. All I know so far is that they are working on the script and trying to find a way around all the tragedy that happened, ”he says, referring to Boseman’s death.
Previously, the star spoke to People magazine and said he would be ready to reprise the role if invited.
“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.
Jordan 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 it meant a lot to the franchise. What happened was devastating and no one can replace it. “
Recalling that the sequel is being written by director Ryan Coogler, and will explore the world of Wakanda and the rich characters featured in the first film.
With the title “ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever ”, the premiere of the film was scheduled for July 8, 2022

According to actress Lupita Nyong’o, Coogler has reformulated the entire film to honor the memory of the beloved actor.
“His death is still very recent for me. I don’t even know where to start to imagine what it will be like to enter the setting without having it there. […] But we have a leader in Ryan, who feels the same as we do, who feels this very, very real loss as well. And his idea and the way he rephrased the second movie is so respectful of that loss that we all feel like a cast, just like the rest of the world. So it seems to be spiritually and emotionally correct to do this. And I hope and look forward to being able to come together and honor what he started with us, keeping his light alive through the film. Because it left us a lot of light, which we will still bathe in a lot. I’m sure “.

Chadwick Boseman’s legacy will be preserved, as Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige argued. According to him, there will never be another actor playing T’Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“A lot of the comics and the first movie are from the world of Wakanda. Wakanda is a place to explore more with characters and different subcultures. It was always and initially the main theme of the next story. “, Did he declare.
“We’re not going to have 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 and love and genius he has, which takes heart from us, so it was always about promoting Wakanda’s mythology and inspiration. There is also the task of honoring and respecting the continuing learning and teaching of Chad.
The cameras start rolling in June 2021.
Tenoch Huerta, star of “Narcos: Mexico”, will play the villain.
