BLACK PANTHER Star Winston Duke Campaigns For M'Baku To Be The Sequel's Main Villain

M'Baku actor Winston Duke is busy promoting his new Netflix caper Spenser Confidential, and the actor has now made a case for why M'Baku deserves to be the main villain in Ryan Coogler's Black Panther II!

Winston Duke ended up stealing the show in 2018's Black Panther, and his brief return in Avengers: Infinity War was a highlight for a lot of comic book fans out there. The leader of the Jabari tribe wasn't a victim of The Snap, and there's since been speculation that he ruled over Wakanda during T'Challa's five-year absence. 

Promoting Netflix's Spenser Confidential before its arrival on the streaming platform tomorrow, Duke made a case for why M'Baku might be a good choice of bad guy for Black Panther II.

"[M'Baku] is a hero, but he has so much going on," the actor tells Screen Rant. "I think what makes a really great villain is that they have the power of seeing things their own way, and they can define their own circumstances."
 
"And that's what's really cool about all the MCU villains so far as well. Loki always sees things his own way, and he chooses when he's going to be an ally or an antagonist. Thanos always had the power of self-definition. That's his greatest strength. It wasn't the rings, it wasn't his superpower or the fighting. It’s that he made his mind up and said, 'This is how I define justice.'"

"Because he wasn't a bad guy; he's just a dude who was seeking ultimate justice and balance. That's not bad. But he defined it himself, and all the really great villains that Marvel interrogates always have that ability, so they can go anywhere,"
Duke concluded.

He makes a convincing argument for why M'Baku should go to war with Black Panther again in 2022, and a leading role for the breakout character isn't something anyone would complain about.
