During an interview with Bleacher Report, Michael B. Jordan said that the “Black Panther” antagonist Killmonger was not a villain.
For Jordan, the character’s actions can be justified because “he cared as much for his people in Wakanda as he did for T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), except he had a different way of demonstrating it.”
As it turns out, fans criticized the response, pointing to Killmonger’s crimes and murders, pointing out that he was indeed a villain.

“Killmonger shot his girlfriend. He’s definitely a bad guy and an asshole, but with understandable reasons… But still… He’s an asshole. He burned the grass in the shape of a heart and suffocated an old lady! Isn’t he a bad guy? Like, what are you talking about? “

“‘Killmonger was not a bad guy.’ His gang shot an innocent person in the back in the very first scene of the movie. Oh yeah, he’s not a bad guy.

“It’s okay to understand Killmonger’s point of view or to be sympathetic to your family’s plight when letting go. But the guy killed his girlfriend for a tactical advantage and took pleasure in intimidating and physically abusing women. His name is literally “killer”. Yes, he’s a bad guy.

So what’s your opinion?
Recalling that the release of ‘Black Panther 2’ has been postponed from July 8, 2022 to November 11, 2022.
Previously, Production Weekly leaked the synopsis for the feature, which puts Atlantis and Namor in sequence.
“Wakanda and Atlantis are both hidden civilizations with advanced technology and superior military capabilities that have decided to separate themselves from the rest of the world for their own safety and, in a way, out of fear. Wakanda feared that its technology was being abused. Alantis feared that surface dwellers would desecrate the Mythic City like they did so many years ago
However, their fears are further heightened when these two nations, once hidden, collide. Wakanda and Atlantis have a surprisingly intertwined history. Wakanda is the only country in the world to have access to vibranium. However, rumors of his power are spreading around the world and Namor’s human father has been sent to search for this rare material in Antarctica. The war is about to begin.
Tenoch Huerta will be Namor.
Ryan Coogler returns as director and screenwriter.
“Black Panther” was released in 2018 and was a huge box office success, grossing over $ 1.3 billion worldwide. Plus, it becomes the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.
