Sope Aluko has been tipped to return for ‘Black Panther II’.
Nigerian-born British American actress, Sope Aluko might be returning for Black Panther’s sequel.
According to a report by Digital Spy, the majority of the cast are expected to return for the sequel after a brilliant performance with the first one.
It is also believed that the plot of the sequel will determine who fits into the film and who doesn’t make it. Sope plays the role of Shaman, a spiritualist and Zuri’s (Forest Whitaker character) student.
In an interview with Ayiba Magazine, Sope also hinted that her character might be popping up for the sequel since her teacher, Zuri, is dead.
“My character in the film is the Shaman. I am a spiritual leader and sort of a conduit between both the supernatural world and the existing world. Zuri is the King’s spiritual advisor is my teacher, so essentially I am his protégé. There is an opportunity for my role to come back in Black Panther 2 based on the storyline, so fingers crossed,” she said.
Digital Spy reports that the cast of ‘Black Panther’ arguably performed very well, so it is expected that most of those featured in the first film to return.
Proposed to return for the sequel of the film include Boseman Chadwick (T’Challa/Black Panther), Winston Duke (M’Baku), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi) and Angela Bassett (Ramonda, T’Challa’s mother).
