Ryan Coogler is Officially Set to Write and Direct BLACK PANTHER 2

This isn’t going to come as a surprise to anyone, but Ryan Coogler is set to write and direct Black Panther 2 for Marvel Studios.

Chadwick Boseman is expected to reprise his role as King T'Challa and I imagine he’ll be joined by the rest of the ensemble cast that ends up living through whatever happens in Avengers 4.

Coogler did a decent job with the first movie and it was praised by a lot of fans. Marvel and Disney were so happy with it that they are pushing for 16 Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director.

A release date has not been set yet and plot details have yet to be revealed. According to Variety, production is expected to start at the end of 2019 or early 2020, depending on when the script is ready.

Coogler might actually shoot a smaller film before jumping into the Black Panther sequel. That film might be a remake of 12 Angry Men.

I’m excited to see where the story for the sequel takes Black Panther next. Who would you like to see as the villain?
