Ryan Coogler Officially Signs On To Write & Direct "Black Panther" Sequel

Ryan Coogler Officially Signs On To Write & Direct

It's time to rejoice, Black Panther fans, because writer and director Ryan Coogler is returning for a second outing for one of Marvel's most successful standalone superheroes to date.

With the first Black Panther film from Marvel Studios being such a huge box office and critical hit, a sequel was only inevitable. Will it be Black Panther 2, Iron Man style, or have a snappy subtitle like the Captain America films?

The crown may hang heavy on T'Challa's head, but for Coogler, it's gotta feel good to be king of both Wakanda and Marvel. "A lot of it will be when Ryan wants to and not rushing anything, but I think we have an idea of when it will be", Feige told Collider's Steve Weintraub in April 2018, just two months after Black Panther bowed in theaters.

While Marvel or Disney to comment on the terms of their agreement, images from the Black Panther series have appeared in montages for the 2019 Avengers' film venture.

The deal was slow in the making until recently, with Coogler being said to begin writing the screenplay next year with a production start in either late 2019 or early 2020. He chose to not take on Creed II, instead having relatively unknown director Steven Caple Jr. take on the task-imagine Coogler passing the torch to another up-and-coming young black filmmaker.

With T'Challa having fallen victim to Thanos' deadly finger-snap, Black Panther 2 remains in a curious position with no one now holding the mantle of Black Panther, though the events of Avengers 4 will likely have a large impact on the plot direction of the film.
