Michael B. Jordan weighs in on Killmonger's possible return in 'Black Panther' sequel

Never say never when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Actor Michael B. Jordan recently discussed the idea of his “Black Panther” character, Erik Killmonger, making a comeback even though he died in the first film.

He’s all for it — but “only if it’s the right thing,” he shared during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“There’s always a love I have for those characters and Erik is definitely one of those that means a lot to me,” he said. “So only if it’s the right thing and it’s impactful and if I could add something to it. If it means something then, yeah, I wanna be a part of that journey, you know?”

Although the “Without Remorse” actor, 34, admitted that he’s not sure what director Ryan Coogler is doing with the upcoming sequel, he stated that the duo are, “definitely gonna do projects together in the future.”
