RUMOR: Donald Glover In 'Informal' Talks to Play Black Panther 2's Villain

Share

In March, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed big plans for a Black Panther sequel.

According to a source cited by Metro.co.uk, as director Ryan Coogler prepares for the follow-up to his smash hit Black Panther, he's contemplating adding Glover to the greater MCU after the actor appeared briefly in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

'One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino.

Of course, things aren't set in stone just yet, but the outlet notes that "informal talks" are happening between Coogler, Glover, and representatives from Disney and Marvel to "see if they can make it happen".

Donald Glover has become a highly respected artist in the industry, with the actor being considered to star in his own Star Wars spin off as Lando Calrissian some time after the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. While Killmonger died in the first film, that's never stopped comic book characters before - the rumor continues that Jordan is also in talks to return.

Black Panther 2 is only in the beginning stages of its life cycle and it's already gearing up to be a classic.

The National Transportation Safety Board investigated a 2016 fatal crash in Florida involving a Tesla Model S using Autopilot . It revealed that she had "manually pressed the vehicle brake pedal fractions of a second prior to the crash".

The desire to have had more Klaw in Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe also stems from an appreciation of the man behind the character, Andy Serkis.

Donald Glover is one of the most talented people in Hollywood.

Recently, singer-turned-actress Mary J. Blige said she could 100 percent see herself in a superhero movie after watching Black Panther.

Coogler is still weighing a return for Killmonger, the source said, and an appearance could rest on Glover's decision.

After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. There's no word on how long fans will have to wait before Black Panther 2 releases in theaters, but hopefully it won't be too long of a wait.
