Chadwick Boseman’s death back in August has caused many to speculate about the future of the fan-favourite Marvel franchise, “Black Panther 2”.
Just recently, rumours started going around about how singer-actress Rihanna might make a cameo for the long-awaited sequel to the 2018 superhero movie.
The nine-time Grammy winner sparked speculations around social media after fans found her name to be listed under the cast for “Black Panther 2” through Google Search. As of now, a simple search of “Black Panther 2 cast” on Google will show Rihanna casted along side other returning cast members such as Letitia Wright, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira and Martin Freeman.
Sadly, E! News has reported that the 32-year-old singer won’t be appearing on the big screen for the highly-anticipated sequel. As much as we want it to be true, there is no evidence to back up these claims and it could’ve just been a glitch on Google’s part.

Glitch or not, it has definitely sparked rumours around social media with fans getting excited to see Rihanna flaunting her gorgeous looks in MCU. Even though we won’t get to see the singer doing the Wakanda salute, we might see Tenoch Huerta (from “Narcos: Mexico”) doing just that, as it was recently reported that he is in talks to join the cast of the forthcoming sequel.
“Black Panther 2” is set to begin filming in Atlanta next July, and the team had to rewrite the whole film following Boseman’s death. Thankfully, the production team has denied claims that they will bring our beloved King T’Challa in the form of CGI, like what “Fast & Furious” did with Paul Walker.
