FandomWire is reporting that Michael B. Jordan is coming back to be part of Black Panther 2. They state, “While the details of how Michael B. Jordan will return, and the size of his role, are still under wraps, we can confirm he will return for the sequel.”
Of course, anyone who watched Black Panther knows that Jordan’s character, Eric Killmonger, was killed by Chadwick Boseman’s character, T’Challa, at the end of the film. So it will be interesting to see how they write him into the next chapter.
FandomWire is throwing out some possibles ways he could return. One is through some sort of flashback. Another option is then revealing that he really didn’t die. A third possible scenario is to bring back Eric in a multiverse version.
They state, “With word of Chris Evans returning as Captain America, as well as our previous report on Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning as Spider-Man, Marvel is betting big on Multiverse characters. Perhaps Jordan returns as an else-world version of Black Panther from a separate timeline.”
