Kendrick LaMar Wants To Be A Villain In Black Panther Sequel

    Black Panther shattered box office records and falsehoods about the marketing viability and drawing power of an all-black  major motion picture, so its a no-brainer that Marvel is planning to come back with a sequel it hopes matches the hype of the first movies historic significance. 

    Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed it in an interview published Friday by Entertainment Weekly.

    “We absolutely will do that,” Feige said of a second “Black Panther” film, though he wouldn’t reveal any plot secrets.

    Word on the streets is that Kendrick Lamar would love for his first venture into acting to be as a villain in the Black Panther sequel. The emerging Hip Hop legend, who curated and produced the first film’s soundtrack, told BBC Radio 1 he’d have fun playing a villain like Erik Killmonger from the first movie.

    “He was a villain but he was loved and misunderstood,” Lamar said. “So if I could, I’d play a Killmonger for sure.”

    Lamar’s versatile and multi-talented, and hes already a musical icon for the younger generation, so it wouldnt be that inconceivable to see him play some role in the sequel. 

    “Black Panther” is already the biggest box office movie of 2018, having topped the $1 billion mark. It opened Friday in China, the world’s second largest movie market, earning an estimated $22.7 million.
