Fans Of 'Black Panther' Are Going Crazy Over New Reports Of This Megastar Joining The Cast Of The Film's Sequel
A Black Panther sequel is reportedly soon going to be in the works!

Oh and if that doesn’t delight you enough, the original film's director and co-writer, Ryan Coogler, is supposedly planning on enlisting a certain music and film star to step into a riveting role.

Metro UK says Ryan is doing his best to get Atlanta star Donald Glover to join the cast.

"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," a source explained. "One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino."

Um, that would be amazing.

While "nothing is set in stone" just yet, "informal talks" are happening among Ryan, Donald and "reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen."

You know who else might show up on-screen again? 

Michael B. Jordan. Even though his character, Erik Killmonger, died in the first installment! Hm.

"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," the disher added.


Twitter was in full force, quickly whipping up a response to these casting rumors.


Oh but what about that all-female spin-off idea? Please let both happen!


Ryan recently had a two-hour talk at the Cannes Film Festival, during which he sprung a sort of surprise on the crowd.

Upon being asked by moderator and critic Elvis Mitchell whether the women of Black Panther were as important as the men. Ryan immediately said, (per Variety), “I think you could argue they are more important.”  

Yay!

“There’s a whole section of the film where T’Challa is out of the movie and you’re just following the women,” he noted. 


Elvis then pondered whether he’d be open to working on a female spinoff of his film. 

“Oh man,” he replied. “That would be amazing if the opportunity came up. They did it in the comic-book version.”


With a monstrous debut during President's Day weekend ($242.1 million at the box office), Black Panther shattered records and it makes perfect sense that companies would want more smashing successes to build up their bank accounts.


Okay, okay! What do you think about this news?
