  • Rihanna appeared in google searches this week under ‘Black Panther 2.’
  • It had fans in a tizzy, wondering if she was cast in the movie, if she’ll be part of the soundtrack, or if it was just a glitch.
  • After the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, someone like Rihanna would be the perfect addition to the franchise.

Rihanna has always been shrouded in mystery. And today is no different.

The ‘Umbrella’ singer curiously showed up in some google searches involving Black Panther 2. Whether or not the rumors are true, the franchise should think about adding some superstars of her caliber.

She could soften the blow of the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman while propelling the Black Panther franchise powerfully into the future.

There’s no hard evidence that would suggest RiRi is going to make an appearance, but it wouldn’t be completely out of left field. Rihanna has acted in major films before.

The Afro-Barbadian star has appeared in Battleship, This Is the End, and Ocean’s 8, to name a few.

She Should Be Perfect for Black Panther 2

The Black Panther movies will likely recover from the loss of Chadwick Boseman at some point, and quite frankly, it seems too early even to be concerned with the movie.

But could there be a better way to send this pivotal franchise off into the future than using real superheroes in the movie?

Rihanna is already a legend. She embodies traits of Chadwick Boseman, such as being a very private, mysterious person. She’s already shown us her power in a variety of ways, including forgiving Chris Brown. She could help bolster the strength and compassion that Boseman embodied while he was alive.

And while we’re at it, why not let Beyoncé make an appearance or two?

Boseman left behind an immense gap when he passed, but the Black community is filled with heroes that can gracefully take the torch.
