It seems that Black Panther star John Kani is eager for a return to the franchise and broke down how that may happen.
During a recent interview, Black Panther star John Kani talked a bit about his role as T’Challa’s father and his hopes for the upcoming sequel. John Kani, of course, played King T’Chaka in Captain America: Civil War where he was tragically killed by Zemo, setting Black Panther’s own subplot in the film in motion. He reprised the role in 2018’s mega-hit, Black Panther where he appeared to his son in a dream-like state. And if John Kani were to return, he would probably appear in a similar manner.
During the interview, John Kani said he’s just waiting on the call from Marvel to reprise his role:
I’m waiting for the call.
John Kani then broke down how his return would work:
If [T’Challa] goes to sleep he’ll dream about me. If he dies he will meet me. So, probably, he’ll call me.
From the look of things, John Kani’s return to Black Panther is very plausible!

Here is a plot synopsis for Black Panther:
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
