BLACK PANTHER's Chadwick Boseman On Possible Killmonger Return In Sequel; AVENGERS: ENDGAME Excitement

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has been exceptionally tight-lipped when it comes to possible spoilers for the sequel of his standalone movie and Avengers: Endgame. Naturally, he was asked about both.

We've known for a while now that Marvel's billion-dollar blockbuster Black Panther will be getting a sequel. While most of the focus right now is on Avengers: Endgame, Chadwick Boseman, who plays King T'Challa, was asked for an update on the highly anticipated sequel to the standalone movie. Unfortunately, he offered little in terms of details.

"I'm in the loop," Boseman responded when asked if returning director/writer Ryan Coogler was keeping him up to date with pre-production process, adding that he's "excited about" the early ideas Coogler has come up with.

One of those ideas could be the return of Michael B. Jordans's Erik Killmonger, though no one from Marvel Studios has actually confirmed his return. "I can't speak on that," Boseman said when asked what he thought about the prospect of Killmonger returning in the sequel. "I can't tell you what I think about it. If I tell you what I think about it, it would be revealing something."

For what it's worth, Entertainment Tonight previously reported that everyone will be returning for Black Panther 2, including Michael B. Jordan, and Boseman's hesitance to talk about it kind of seems like an admission by omission. 

Boseman was equally tight-lipped about the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. T'Challa was one of the many heroes that were wiped to dust with the Thanos snap and Boseman has done a magnificent job of not spoiling his role - if any - in the upcoming movie. He's been consistent in offering his thoughts on the film as someone who does not have a part in it. Boseman was also asked about Avengers: Endgame and if he was excited about it, and the actor's answer was equally as intriguing.

"Yeah, it'd be great, you know, looking at it from the outside in," Boseman said with a smile, suggesting he will return at some point. Asked if the fallen will be avenged, Boseman responded coyly: "Some."

As frustrating as these vague responses may be, you've got to hand it to Boseman and the rest of the cast and crew of Avengers: Endgame for being able to keep a secret for a film as large as Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the wait won't be too much longer.



Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26. Tickets for the blockbuster went on sale earlier this week, smashing presale records.
