Michael B. Jordan recently sat down on a podcast with Jemele Hill to discuss his latest film ventures and most notably his role as Killmonger in Black Panther.

Jordan joins Spotify podcast Jemele Hill is Unbothered, first to discuss his most recent role in Without Remorse, an Amazon Prime exclusive remake of the classic film, The Thomas Crown Affair. The two dive into a discussion about what it was like for Jordan, a Black actor to play parts that are typically cast as White roles. Jordan made it very clear that he tries his best to avoid being typecasted and to say no to roles that do not advance his long-term vision for his career.

Jordan was later asked whether or not Marvel fans will be able to see Killmonger return to the screens for Black Panther 2. The actor appears to not know if the team at Marvel has made a decision on whether or not the character or himself will return stating, “If there’s anyone that’s going to figure it out, Ryan [Coogler] is going to figure it out.” He adds, “Having a tragedy we are all dealing with, like losing Chadwick [Boseman], I think Marvel, Fiege, Ryan and everybody over there had to figure out what was next. I haven’t gotten the information, one way or another so I’m not sure. But, whatever it is, they’re the right people to figure it out.”

As the conversation unfolds, Hill asks Jordan to choose between LeBron James or Michael Jordan. Seeing that Jordan made a brief cameo as himself in the second Space Jam installment, the question only seemed appropriate. Jordan, who initially struggled to answer responded, “Imma go with LeBron, it’s a generational thing.” He later doubled down on his answer stating, “I’m going to go with ‘Bron, and imma go with Jordan kicks.”

It still remains to be seen if Killmonger will return for Black Panther 2.

In other entertainment news, Space Jam 2 director revealed he wants Dwayne Johnson to star in the next sequel.
