Well, it turns out Ryan Coogler might not be in talks with Donald Glover or Michael B. Jordan for Black Panther 2.

Wednesday, Metro published a report about the Black Panther director and co-writer having "informal talks" with Glover to play a villain in the sequel, and/or to have Jordan return.

The Wrap film reporter Umberto Gonzalez subsequently tweeted there's "no truth whatsoever' to that Metro Uk story about Black Panther 2/Donald Glover, Michael B Jordan rumor..." Gonzalez is editor-in-chief of Heroic Hollywood and a self-proclaimed "ace scooper"; he did not say who he's quoting on "no truth whatsoever." There may still be hope since Gonzalez doesn't always get it right—although since the Black Panther 2 rumor he's shot down another one, about DC's Birds of Prey casting.

Whether or not it's true, we can still enjoy the joke Glover contributed to Black Panther as well as Jordan's performance as Killmonger. As for the sequel producer Nate Moore said he's open to switching up the person who gets to don the Black Panther suit.

“One thing I like to tell Ryan is, the Black Panther is a mantle as much as it is a person, so we’re not restricted by anything, because the truth is, there’s a lot of different ways to go back to Wakanda and have a good time and continue to explore the themes that made the first film so resonant,” said Moore. 

Coogler also voiced support for a spinoff film with all of the women in Black Panther, like they did with 2016's World of Wakanda comic or when Shuri became the Black Panther. "That would be amazing if the opportunity came up," said Coogler. But tbh, we're just hoping to see T'Challa's return in Avengers 4.
