SOLO Actor Donald Glover Is Rumored To Be In Line To Play The Villain In BLACK PANTHER 2

Massive rumor time! According to a new report, Ryan Coogler wants Solo: A Star Wars Story actor Donald Glover to play the baddie in Black Panther 2. Plus, Michael B. Jordan could return as Killmonger...

Normally we wouldn't give much credence to a tabloid rumor, but after The Sun beat the trades to the news that Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to play Mysetrio in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, this might just be worth paying attention to.

According to the UK’s Metro, director Ryan Coogler is in the early stages of developing his sequel to Black Panther and is in the process of developing a few new characters - one of whom he'd very much like Donald Glover to play.


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. 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.

Coogler did consult with Glover on the first movie, so this wouldn't be too far-fetched - however, the highly in-demand actor is already part of the MCU having appeared as Aaron Davis, a.k.a. the Prowler, in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Killmonger's return would also raise a few eyebrows given the fact that he very clearly died at the end of Black Panther, and bringing him back in any capacity would do a huge disservice to the character.

At any rate, take all of this with a big pinch of salt for the time being. If there is any truth to it, chances are we'll have some updates for you soon.
