·1 min read

Never say never when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Actor Michael B. Jordan recently discussed the idea of his "Black Panther" character, Erik Killmonger, making a comeback even though he died in the first film.

He's all for it -- but "only if it's the right thing," he shared during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"There's always a love I have for those characters and Erik is definitely one of those that means a lot to me," he said. "So only if it's the right thing and it's impactful and if I could add something to it. If it means something then, yeah, I wanna be a part of that journey, you know?"
