WARNING THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR “BLACK PANTHER 2”
From March 2022, the site ScreenGeek announced the return of Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The medium specified that the actor who played Erik Killmonger, who died in the first film, would return to the Ancestral Plan to take a “young hero” under his wing.
Asked several times about this, Michael B. Jordan has always denied the information. Even his family…
He confides today at the microphone ofin addition 🇧🇷No one knew. A lot of my family was with me and I had to lie to everyone [rires]🇧🇷 I had to keep the secret. When you deal with Marvel and big studios, you know how it goes. So you just have to deny, deny, deny, deny, deny until the end🇧🇷
In Wakanda Forever, Killmonger, T’Challa’s cousin (Chadwick Boseman) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) and main antagonist of the first Black Panther, do appear in the Ancestral Plane.
He’s the one Shuri sees during his transformation. If the latter is disappointed not to find her brother, nor her mother, Killmonger explains to her that it is because, like him, she seeks revenge.
He encourages the young woman to embrace the rage within her. But when it came time for her revenge, Shuri ultimately chose to make peace with Namor (Tenoch Huerta) and not let the rage that led Killmonger to her downfall take hold.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever by Ryan Coogler has been in theaters since November 9 and has just crossed the 3 million admissions mark at the French box office.
