Black Panther’s director, Ryan Coogler, has been in “informal talks” with Donald Glover for a possible role in the film’s sequel.
A source has told Metro.co.uk exclusively that Ryan is working on new characters and is in ‘informal talks’ with Star Wars’ Donald Glover, who we also know as Childish Gambino whenever he puts on his music artist hat.
The insider told us: ‘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.’
The source also teased the return of the much-loved villain Erik Killmonger played by Creed’s Michael B. Jordan, who is also now a movie producer. The source added: ‘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.’
