Recently, we've reported that Donald Glover played a helping hand to writing one of the funniest jokes in the first film, and now it seems he could potentially have a bigger role in the sequel. He's dead, dead. Which I think, honestly, was part of the sell for Andy in going, 'Oh, I get to play this character that gets to sort of shine very brightly and burn out quickly. Furthermore, Michael B. Jordan, who played the villain Killmonger in the first Black Panther, is in talks to return in the sequel in some regard.

Glover plays a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star War Story, which releases this weekend. There may still be hope since Gonzalez doesn't always get it right-although since the Black Panther 2 rumor he's shot down another one, about DC's Birds of Prey casting.

It looks like Glover may continue his media dominance as a character in the sequel to Black Panther. Unfortunately, this isn't the most likely theory, as Aaron Davis's inclusion in Spider-Man: Homecoming was essentially only used to set up the character Miles Morales. Meanwhile, they say director Ryan Coogler is debating bringing back Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger.More news: Rose McGowan and Other Accusers React to Harvey Weinstein Turning Himself in
"[The decision] was made pretty early on because we knew ultimately that more than Ulysses Klaw, Killmonger was the main villain of the film", Moore said. How would you like to see Killmonger return? There's no word on how long fans will have to wait before Black Panther 2 releases in theaters, but hopefully it won't be too long of a wait.More news: Opioids found in Puget Sound mussels
