The movie showed the rise of the British band, Queen, and specifically focused on the life of its lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie Mercury’s tragic yet eventful life was portrayed on screen by actor Rami Malek. His performance worked wonders for the film and he went on to bag an Oscar for the film.

But he was quick to add that they also concluded that Bohemian Rhapsody 2 is not possible at the moment. Brian May further added that the situation could change but it still seems difficult.

When the rumours were swirling regarding Bohemian Rhapsody 2, it was being said that it will take a closer look in the life of Freddie Mercury apart from his life in the band. For those of you who are not aware of this, Freddie Mercury passed away in 1991 due to pneumonia. Hence a second movie might have given fans a look at Mercury’s life post their famous Live Aid, at which point the first movie ended. But now, Brian May’s comment puts a full stop on Rami Malek's Bohemian Rhapsody 2 appearance.
