Marvel just announced the official title for Black Panther 2. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to be released on July 8, 2022. Following the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman who portrayed T’Challa in the first film, director Ryan Coogler returned to the drawing board, revamping his script so that it paid homage to the late actor and the world of Wakanda and its characters as a whole.
Following Boseman’s death, fans have been asking Micheal B. Jordan, Coogler’s frequent collaborator to return to the sequel as the villainous, Erik Killmonger. The Creed star was absolutely sensational in the role as the volatile and extreme soldier who lacked compassion. However, the Without Remorse star just revealed that returning to Wakanda is highly unlikely for him.
When asked how likely he was to reprise his role as Killmonger on a scale of 1 to 10, Jordan had a lot to say. “I’m gonna go with a solid 2,” Jordan said on SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle Show. “I didn’t want to go zero! Never say never. I can’t predict the future.” Jordan also revealed what he knew about the highly anticipated sequel.
Though Jordan is very close with Coogler he also explained he knows very little about what to expect from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
“I honestly don’t know much at all,” he said. “All I know is they’re developing a script that is a reflection of a lot of circumstances and tragedy that we had to deal with this past year. I know Ryan and Marvel are going to do the absolute best job at developing the story in a way that makes everybody happy and satisfied and honors Chad and moves forward with grace.”
Since Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to begin filming in Atlanta soon, we expect we’ll get more details in the near future.
