This is something that’s been rumoured for quite sometime. Popcorned Planet for instance was saying that a Killmonger series was coming, and now Giant Freakin Robot is saying the same thing. This all comes after it was revealed that Ryan Coogler was going to be making a Black Panther spinoff series based in the Kingdom of Wakanda.
It had been revealed by Deadline that Coogler had signed an exclusive 5-year television deal with Disney Plus. Coogler will be making these Black Panther spinoff series with his company, Proximity Media whom he runs with Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Peter Nicks.
A Solo Killmonger series starring Michael B. Jordan is in the works
Here’s what Giant Freakin Robot had to say about Michael B. Jordan being in a Killmonger solo series:
According to our trusted inside source – the same one that gave us our confirmed exclusive scoops regarding Don Cheadle appearing as War Machine in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Josh Brolin returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thanos – Michael B. Jordan is getting a Killmonger series developed for him over at Disney+. This is not the Wakanda-focused series that was recently announced but is being developed parallel to that series. There are apparently a number of Wakandan series currently in development and one of them will be about the Dora Milaje. The assumption is that Killmonger would be focused on the period of time before we meet Killmonger as an adult in Black Panther and will help flesh out his backstory.
