Black Panther’ is still in theaters bringing in the dough and on digital platforms and saw it’s official DVD release just days ago but the planning for ‘Black Panther 2‘ are already in the works.

According to fresh reports, the film will look to bring back Michael B. Jordan for his role as Erik Killmonger, and will see a fresh face in ‘This Is America’ hit maker/actor, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.

A source has told Metro.co.uk exclusively that Ryan is working on new characters and is in ‘informal talks’ with Star Wars’ Donald Glover, who we also know as Childish Gambino whenever he puts on his music artist hat.

The insider told us: ‘Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther’s sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres. ‘One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino. Nothing is set in stone but “informal talks” [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen.’

The source also teased the return of the much-loved villain Erik Killmonger played by Creed’s Michael B. Jordan, who is also now a movie producer. The source added: ‘They’re still yet to decide if Michael B Jordan will return in some capacity but if he doesn’t it’s likely Gambino may play some kind of villain.’ We do wonder how MBJ could possibly return in the sequel because – spoiler alert – viewers watched him pretty much die at the end of the first movie which was released February this year. Diehard fans will be quick to point out that the complex character came back from the dead in the comics. So the idea of Killmonger resurrecting is not that farfetched – he is a comic book being after all!

Black Panther 2 was confirmed in March by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in an interview published by Entertainment Weekly – and months later during a conference at Cannes festival, Ryan admitted he wanted to make an all-female Black Panther spin-off starring Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira and Angela Bassett.

Exciting news and we can’t wait to see how the cast rounds out as we prepare to return to Wakanda for part 2. Stay tuned.
