A Marvel fanboy just made a trailer that is meant to give you closure if you've been preaching #JusticeForKillmonger on Twitter.

A re-cut Black Panther trailer featuring Killmonger (Michael B Jordan) as the protagonist of the film has been posted on YouTube. The 58-second video is set up like the trailer of a movie named Killmonger.

The trailer doesn't make any changes to the content, just uses footage from Black Panther to make the teaser look like a Killmonger spin-off. 

In Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, Killmonger was presented as a foil to T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the king of Wakanda. Killmonger, whose full name is Eric Killmonger (originally named N'Jadaka) was T'Challa's cousin but had never known his Wakandan roots.

Killmonger was left an orphan as a boy, when his father was killed by his uncle (who also happens to be T'Challa's father), and years later he goes to Wakanda to claim his birthright and seek revenge against T'Challa's family.

Killmonger also sought to use Wakanda's resources to empower people all around the world, who were victims of social injustice — something T'Challa hadn't wanted at first.

At the end of Black Panther, Killmonger dies, and T'Challa is seen taking up his cousin's cause. Fans have relentlessly claimed that Killmonger never got his due for being right all along.

The fan-made trailer also focuses on Killmonger's story, how he rises from a helpless orphan to become a true Wakandan warrior. Set against Run The Jewel's rap number Panther Like A Panther, the trailer pegs Killmonger as a 'Prince' and a 'Warrior'.

Interestingly, reports suggest that Killmonger might just come back for Black Panther 2, and Jordan himself recently said that he is open to returning to the franchise.

"I mean, I'm a fan, as you said, of Marvel, of comic books, everybody knows that. So, I mean if there was ever an opportunity for me to come back and like join this universe and work with like Joe Russo, Kevin Feige, and everybody over there at Marvel, re-team with Ryan — you know, of course, I would," Jordan told MTV recently.
