Michael B. Jordan Rumored to Appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Michael B. Jordan‘s Killmonger from Black Panther is one of the best villains Marvel Studios has made.

His character is iconic because of his human qualities.

You understand what he is going through; moreover, you understand his pain.

His character is presumed to be dead, because that is what he wanted after his defeat against T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman).

And based on how the scene went, it did seem that T’Challa would have respected Killmonger’s decision.

Now a new report has emerged that Killmonger is returning to the sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Geekosity owner Mikey Sutton reported back in January that Michael B. Jordan’s character could be included in the sequel with a redemption arc.

It has been reported before that there already was a working script before Chadwick Boseman passed away.

However, his passing changed the flow of the original story to a form of tribute.

It’s a complete restructure of what it was supposed to be.

Originally, it was written to have the personal growth of T’Challa as the King of Wakanda.

Now it faces the reality of the loss of T’Challa.

This is possibly the main reason for Michael B. Jordan returning to his role as Killmonger.

A lot of the people involved in the original Black Panther wanted to return to give Boseman a proper send-off.

We don’t have reports yet what role Killmonger will take in the upcoming movie.

Will he be used for flashback scenes?

Possibly as we’ve seen this a lot of times already.

Will he be revived, which goes against his original wishes in the first movie?

But if he is revived, then it might be true that he will get that redemption arc that we reported earlier.

And it seems to us that the character’s revival is the perfectly logical choice since his story was already told perfectly in the original movie.

It only makes sense that we see more of his character grow moving forward.

If he will return, does this mean that he may be the next Black Panther?

It’s possible that there are other characters who are next in line.

I’m actually looking forward to Shuri (Letitia Wright) taking the mantle.

Possibly giving that leadership role to a Black woman would make an interesting impact.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever also needs to build up to show how T’Challa was a good leader.

It’s a story that we will never get to see.

We do presume that a lot of the characters here will be mourning for his loss, but also telling his accomplishments even at a short period of time.

I do think Killmonger’s role with his revival is critical for telling T’Challa’s impact in the possible redemption arc.

A lot of this is speculation, but all I am saying is, Killmonger’s return to Black Panther hasn’t been taken lightly.

There is a lot riding with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

It is dedicated to an amazing actor who died too soon.

Boseman has been an inspiration to many, even to a villain like Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger.
