This week has been overwhelming. Tons of sweets to the sweet in terms of Candyman content. We got a poster that featured a honey-covered hook and then a rad full trailer. Sadly, the one thing that seemed to be missing was our original Candyman, Tony Todd.
I say “seemed” because now we aren’t sure if Todd is definitely out of the sequel. Director Nia DaCosta hinted to Syfy Wire that Todd might indeed play a role after all.
She gave hints in the form of:
Well well well… I really love Tony Todd, he’s iconic. And I will say what we’ve done with this film is… is great. And Tony’s great. Jordan’s great. I don’t want to give anything away.
The plot thickens! It sounds like Todd will play some role in the upcoming spiritual sequel. The trailer leans toward making us believe that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s character is slowly becoming Candyman, but that doesn’t me that it is going to ultimately end up being a Tony Todd unveil.
I’m hopeful that we do indeed get to see Todd return to his iconic role. But, at the same time his involvement in any capacity is welcome as well.
What do you guys think? Is Tony Todd going to be Candyman? Think he will get a cameo as a bee keeper? Let us know in the comments section.
