Danai Gurira Jokes About Killmonger’s Return In ‘Black Panther’ Sequel

Okay, so Killmonger is somewhere swimming with the fishes. And Namor’s nowhere to be seen right now, so chances are that the death of Michael B. Jordan’s character during the climax of Black Panther all but guarantees that he’s gone for good, right? Still, unless his name is Uncle Ben, nobody stays dead forever in the Marvel universe. And Danai Gurira had a bit of fun recently toying with the idea about Killmonger returning for a Black Panther sequel.

Recently, Black Panther co-stars Danai Gurira and Michael B. Jordan attended Variety’s 10 Directors To Watch event. While there, the pair were asked if they could give one secret about the Black Panther sequel. The pair laughed, with Gurira patting Jordan on the shoulder while saying “Killmonger comes back.” Cue laughter. But it’s all in good fun and, to be fair, there’s no way to know if Ryan Coogler would find a way to have Killmonger included via flashbacks, but as of now, he’s as good as dead.

Here, check out the brief exchange with the Black Panther co-stars in the video below

This isn’t the first time where it’s been joked or toyed around about Killmonger returning for a Black Panther sequel. With Avengers: Endgame toying around with time travel, whose to say who else might be resurrected in addition to those wiped out by Thanos? But then, would a Killmonger resurrection cheapen his death similar to Agent Coulson’s being brought back on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after what his death meant in The Avengers? Would you want to see Killmonger pop up in a Black Panther sequel or in some capacity going forward in the MCU?

Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. The film is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.

Tony Stark Is Adrift In Space After His Showdown With Thanos

Avengers Endgame Robert Downey Jr. Iron ManFollowing the showdown on Titan, Tony Stark and Nebula were left alone after Thanos eradicated the rest of the heroes who were present. While some assumed that the genius billionaire would find a way to return to Earth, it appears Tony is adrift in space on a vessel with limited supplies and oxygen.

Nebula Is With Tony

Avengers Endgame Nebula Marvel StudiosWhile Tony Stark may be lost in space with no chance of being rescued, it appears he will be accompanied by Nebula, the only other survivor of the showdown on Titan. How the two characters are getting along in what could be their final days remains unknown, though Nebula appears to be faring better than her new companion.

Scott Lang Escaped The Quantum Realm

Ant-Man Avengers EndgameDuring the first post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang found himself trapped inside the Quantum Realm after his friends were erased by the Thanos snap and some speculated that the Avengers would have to rescue him. However, it appears Scott Lang managed to escape the realm on his own and brought the van containing the way to the alternate dimension with him.

Possible Time Jump

Avengers Endgame Marvel_Studios_Captain America Chris EvansDuring the final moments of the new trailer, Captain America and Black Widow view a video of Scott Lang asking to be let inside Avengers headquarters. Captain America wonders if the message is old, meaning that some time may have passed since Thanos' decimation and Scott's escape from the Quantum Realm.

Hawkeye Is Definitely Ronin

Avengers Endgame Hawkeye Ronin

After months of speculation, the Avengers: Endgame trailer essentially confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns. Furthermore, Captain America line about losing family being said over footage of Clint Barton's appearance suggests that the archer's family perished in the decimation and their deaths prompted him to take on a new identity.

They Know Spider-Man Is MissingAvengers Endgame Marvel Studios Spider-ManDuring the trailer, Bruce Banner can be seen assessing a list of victims of Thanos' decimation and it appears the team knows Spider-Man is among the missing. This may come as a surprise to some considering Spider-Man was with Tony Stark during the events of Infinity War.

Captain America's Winter Soldier Suit is Back

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter SoldierAfter returning in Avengers: Infinity War with a full beard and disheveled costume, Captain America will return to a more familiar look that includes the suit from The Winter Soldier.

Thanos Is Still Wearing The Burned Gauntlet

Avengers Endgame Thanos Marvel StudiosAfter Thanos acquired all six Infinity Stones and used them to accomplish his mission, the gauntlet he used to harness their power was severely damaged. However, it appears the Mad Titan continues to wear the worn gauntlet, perhaps in an effort to ensure no one else can wield the power of the stones and undo his actions.

The Avengers Have A Plan

Avengers Endgame

Though all may seem hopeless, our heroes aren't heading into their next showdown with Thanos without a plan. Hopefully, it will work, because Steve Rogers certainly seems concerned about what they will do if the Avengers fail for a second time.
