Plans for future films could see his return over the course of the story arc, and there was chatter that they might have him in a limited cameo role if it could work out. The other thought was they may be able to use footage from the last movie that never made the final edit if needed.
Yeah, i was wondering how that would go, I guess he isn't necessary anymore except a minor part
