Michael B Jordan weighs in on Possible Return From Killmonger
Never say never when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actor Michael B. Jordan recently discussed the idea of his “Black Panther” character; Erik Killmonger making a comeback even though he died in the first film.
He’s all for it — but “only if it’s the right thing,” he shared during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“There’s always a love I have for those characters & Erik is definitely one of those that means a lot to me,” he said. “So only if it’s the right thing and it’s impactful and if I could add something to it. If it means something then, yeah, I wanna be a part of that journey, you know?”
Although the “Without Remorse” actor, 34, admitted that he’s not sure what director Ryan Coogler is doing with the upcoming sequel; he stated that the duo are, “definitely gonna do projects together in the future.”
The pair first collaborated on the acclaimed 2013 drama “Fruitvale Station,” before Jordan starred in Coogler’s 2015 hit “Creed.”
Coogler also produced “Creed II,” and is a producer on the third installment; in which Jordan is making his directorial debut, and was co-written by Ryan Coogler’s brother, Keegan.
