Don’t expect Michael Jordan for sure, but let’s keep an eye out for Michael B. Jordan, that MJ has a strong history of working with director Ryan Coogler.
Ryan Coogler signing on for Space Jam 2 means there’s like a 99% chance Michael B Jordan is in Space Jam 2, meaning I am 100% in on Space Jam 2

Let’s just hope Bill Murray makes a cameo. I’m definitely excited about this one.
