Turns out the best news of 2020 actually isn’t news at all.
On Monday, rumors started swirling that Rihanna might be joining the cast of the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel. Clearly, the world was absolutely stoked about the possibility of getting a Rihanna appearance added to an already iconic movie franchise, but, unfortunately, there is no truth to the rumors.E! News has learned Rihanna has not been cast in the upcoming film.
The news first spread like wildfire when fans noticed that the musician and businesswoman had been added to the cast list when you Google Black Panther 2. Although, if it’s been said once it’s been said a million times: Not everything on the internet is true.
In fact, there is no evidence to back up these claims. While a Rihanna in Wakanda takeover would have been the boost of joy everyone needed this year, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. The nine-time Grammy winner is best known for her music, but has taken some time over the years to step in-front of the silver screen. Most recently, she starred in the film Ocean’s 8 alongside Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina.
