Solo: A Star Wars’ Donald Glover Is Reportedly “In Talks” For Role In Black Panther 2

Donald Glover might have made his big Marvel debut as Aaron Davis in Spider-Man: Homecoming last year, but it looks like the studio might be giving the Solo: A Star Wars Story actor a new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Metro UK's sources just recently reported that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has recently been in "informal talks" with the popular actor, director, and musician for a role in the upcoming sequel to his all-black superhero movie.

According to one of the publication's sources, Coogler has been busy mapping out the story of Black Panther 2 and the director has already written in a number of new characters for the film, one of which he means to be played by Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover.

Though nothing has been set in stone just yet, the source says that "'informal talks' [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino, and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen."

There's certainly been a lot of love for Glover the past few months. Not only did the Spider-Man: Homecoming actor become Lucasfilm's new young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, he also landed the lead role as the voice of Simba in Jon Favreau's live-action adaptation of Disney's The Lion King.

However, casting Glover in Black Panther 2 could lead to some pretty big questions. Would this mean that Marvel would be retconning Miles Morales' uncle? Or could Marvel be sending Aaron Davis to Wakanda?

We have to wait and see. Black Panther is currently available on Digital HD and on Blu-Ray. Marvel's most recent film, Avengers: Infinity War, is currently screening in cinemas.
