The Black Panther sequel may see the unexpected return of one of the first film’s lead stars.

According to a new leak, a follow-up to Marvel‘s first Best Picture nominee will be one of many films the studio has planned for the next decade.

Surprisingly, though, this leak claims that Michael B Jordan will return as Erik Killmonger despite *spoiler alert* the character dying in the 2018 film.

The details come from a trusted source known as “Roger Wardell” – he leaked accurate details about Avengers: Endgame months before the blockbuster was released.

Wardell claims that Jordan’s character won’t be resurrected, but will exist in Wakanda’s ”spiritual plane”. He also suggests the film will be politically charged and teases the arrival of the Queen Divine Justice, a princess secretly raised in America by one of T’Challa’s warriors.

There has been no confirmation yet, but Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o are all set to return for the sequel that will likely be released in 2021.

Another tease for the sequel may have arrived in Endgame; fans have been highlighting a seemingly throwaway line spoken by Gurira’s character Okoye that hints at a future threat for Wakanda.

You can look through all the details of the leak – which seemingly reveals all the films Marvel will release over the coming decades – here.
