Word on the street is that director and co-writer of Black Panther, Ryan Coogler, is now trying to enlist Donald Glover as a villain in Black Panther 2 and I don't know about you but I am living for this.

Despite the devastating events that happened at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel President Kevin Feige has said that Ryan Coogler will be back to direct a Black Panther 2 at some point.

According to a source quoted by Metro, Coogler "is now mapping out Black Panther's sequel and has written in a number of new characters" and that "one of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino". As a musician, Glover is also known as Childish Gambino. One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino.

"Ryan Coogler is now 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. "But again, it's one of those things where when you've got so many people in a movie, some of them have to go". In fact, this isn't his first time appearing in a Marvel Studios film.

The only potential issue with Glover playing a role in Black Panther is that he has already appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing briefly as the character Aaron Davis in Spider-Man: Homecoming. While Killmonger died in the first film, that's never stopped comic book characters before - the rumor continues that Jordan is also in talks to return.

It's unclear if Michael B. Jordan's character, Erik Killmonger, will return.

If this does come to fruition, it will be yet another hit Disney project for Glover, who is starring in this weekend's Solo: A Star Wars Story as young Lando Calrissian, a role made famous by Billy Dee Williams.

Do you think Killmonger could return for the Black Panther sequel? This could also set up a movie where Wakanda turns its back on T'Challa for lying to them.
