Behind the Scenes

  • Michael B. Jordan noted the character's dreadlocks hairstyle was a way "to stay true to the original character ['s long hair] as much as possible and make it as modern as we could."[2]
  • Jordan stated that Kilmonger is "very strategic, thoughtful. He's very patient. Very well skilled, trained to a T. He works very hard, and he feels what he's doing is right."[3]
  • Jordan compared Killmonger and T'Challa's relationship to the X-Men characters Magneto and Professor X.[2]
