Michael B Jordan might be buying a plane ticket to Wakanda again with reports that his Black Panther character will return in the sequel.
Marvel fans will remember that Erik Killmonger appeared to die in the first installment of the blockbuster, after being defeated in a fight against T’Challa.
Well according to Angela Bassett, who played Ramonda, there’s still a chance that Michael, 31, could make a dramatic return and, frankly, we are thrilled by the possibility.
When asked if ‘everybody’ would be coming back for Black Panther 2, Angela told on the SAGs red carpet: ‘I would assume so… We didn’t see him [Killmonger] go into the ocean did we?’
Angela’s actor husband, Courtney B Vance, cut her off to lay all the cards on the table: ‘Yes, just go ahead and say it, yes! Everyone will be there, including Michael B.’
The 60-year-old actress then confirmed in regards to Michael: ‘Yes, that’s who we’re talking about.’
Don’t toy with our emotions, guys.
It was a triumphant night for Black Panther at the SAGs, with the Marvel movie winning outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.
Chadwick Boseman, who plays Black Panther, delivered a rousing acceptance speech in which he expressed the cultural impact of the movie.
The 41-year-old said: ‘We all know what it’s like to be told that there is not a place for you to be featured, yet you are young, gifted and black. We know what it’s like to be told there’s not a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on.
‘We know what it’s like to be the tail and not the head. We know what it’s like to be beneath and not above. And that is what we went to work with every day . . . We knew that we had something special that we wanted to give the world, that we could be full human beings in the roles that we were playing, that we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see.’
