Forest Whitaker Has A Pretty Great Idea for How Zuri Could Return In BLACK PANTHER 2

Forest Whitaker had a memorable role as T'Challa's mentor Zuri in Black Panther but the movie made it clear that he won't be back for the sequel. However, the actor has some ideas about how to change that.

One of Black Panther's most shocking moments came when Erik Killmonger murdered Zuri during his battle with T'Challa at Warrior Falls but considering the fact that he was partly responsible for the villain being left without a father, some could argue that he got his just desserts. Regardless, the character made an impact and many fans would love to see more of him in Black Panther's world. 

Unfortunately, being stabbed through the chest is hard to come back from even in a place like Wakanda but Forest Whitaker still has some pretty interesting ideas about how he could return. 

"I guess I would be like an Obi-Wan Kenobi, you know, who comes back, he talks from the ancestral plane to give advice to T’Challa," the actor suggested during a recent interview. "Chadwick’s amazing in the film. Ryan Coogler’s done such an amazing job, so proud to be in it." It's not a bad idea at all but considering the fact that T'Challa felt so betrayed by his father (and Zuri), it seems unlikely.

Stranger things have happened, though, and there are no doubt some interesting ways Zuri could be used in a sequel. However, it would be far more interesting seeing some new characters get the spotlight in the semi-confirmed sequel so we'll just have to wait and see how this one plays out.
