Black Panther: Michael B. Jordan Says Killmonger Took Him To A Dark Place

As great as Marvel Studios movies are, they aren’t really known for their incredibly deep villainous characters. With the exception of Loki, and perhaps even Zemo, they’re often only used as obstacles for our heroes to overcome. It’s a weakness, for sure, but it’s also one that has allowed audiences to really fall in love with the heroes themselves, which is incredibly important for a long-running cinematic universe like this.

But how will Black Panther handle this? In all honesty, as great as both Michael B. Jordan and Andy Serkis are as actors, the trailers for the upcoming film don’t exactly look like the most nuanced of folk. But does that mean they’ll be bad? Not necessarily. And if Jordan’s comments to Empire are any indication, his take on Killmonger may be a memorable one.

“It took me to a dark place. Honestly, I can’t really go through all I went through to get into it because I want to keep that close to me. But it stuck with me afterwards. Chadwick’s a very talented dude. There’s a lot of physical moments and action sequences throughout this film that cause us to really challenge ourselves, and also fall deeper into character.”

This honestly does help get me a bit more excited for the film as a whole. Going into it, I expected to love pretty much every second with Chadwick Boseman on screen. Now, with these comments from Jordan, I’m interested to see just how dark this guy goes in the movie.

What do you think? Do his comments help you look forward to Killmonger, and the film in general? Let us know your thoughts down below!
