Forest Whitaker has revealed his thoughts about his possible return in a Black Panther sequel.
The actor played Wakanda elder statesman Zuri in the Marvel movie, which has just passed $1 billion at the global box office.
His character was killed off during the combat between T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Killmonger (Michael B Jordan), but Forest told Entertainment Tonight that he could still appear in a follow-up despite that slight inconvenience.
“I guess I would be like an Obi-Wan Kenobi, you know, who comes back, he talks from the ancestral plane to give advice to T’Challa,” he said.
“Chadwick’s amazing in the film. [director] Ryan Coogler’s done such an amazing job, so proud to be in it.”
Given its billion-dollar success, a sequel to Black Panther is all-but certain, and Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently suggested as much.
“[I have] nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that,” Feige said.
“One of the favourite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two.”
He added: “There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther.
“We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.”
He also teased the possibility of Wakanda spinoff movies, having previously revealed that the finale of Avengers: Infinity War will take place there.
