According to METRO news sources, Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) is currently being coaxed by ‘Black Panther’ director and co-writer Ryan Coogler to join in the upcoming sequel.
‘Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther’s sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres. ‘One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino. Nothing is set in stone but “informal talks” [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen.’
Another player in the game, our beloved villain Killmonger played by Michael B. Jordan is also being considered for the sequel.
“They’re still yet to decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity but if he doesn’t it’s likely Gambino may play some kind of villain,” said the source.
What do you think of this possible casting? Will Lando make for a good Villain? And what of the return of Killmonger?
