“Why? So you can just lock me up? Nah,” the dying Killmonger said. “Just bury me in the ocean, with my ancestors that jumped from ships… because they knew death was better than bondage.”
Earlier both Erik and T’Challa talked with their dead fathers via a ritual visit to the Ancestral plane. This could be used to involve Jordan if Killmonger wasn’t saved or resurrected somehow.
The cast, which took home top prize at the SAG Awards for Best Performance by a Cast in a Film, offered comments on the sequel now under writer Ryan Coogler.
Here’s What He Had To Say:
“It’s one of those things where honestly, to be able to build on that legacy and those characters and the world that Ryan built — you know, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created years ago — but allow Ryan to actually tell that story, if there’s an opportunity to come back and do a second one…
“I mean, take myself out of that situation [laughs], but for everybody to come back, I think I speak for everybody up here, it would be a tremendous accomplishment,” Jordan said backstage at the SAG Awards.
“Sequels, I think, are one of the hardest films to make, and I feel like to create a world and build upon it that’s so beautifully and delicately woven into the world of the Marvel Universe — but throughout cinema in general, you take Marvel out of it, I think it’s a movie that stands against all film across the board.
“So yeah, I think if there was an opportunity, I think everybody would be pretty excited to come back around.”
