Ryan Coogler Returning To Direct ‘Black Panther’ Sequel

Ryan Coogler to Write and Direct ‘Black Panther 2’

No need to worry anymore, as THR confirmed that Coogler will return as writer-director for the Black Panther follow-up.

With the first Black Panther film from Marvel Studios being such a huge box office and critical hit, a sequel was only inevitable.

The first of two films directed by Coogler raked in a whopping $700 million domestically, $1.3 billion in total, and is nearly assured of a place in the yearly "Oscar conversation". In the acclaimed film, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to the hidden high-tech African nation of Wakanda to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king, following the death of his father.

As you might expect, news of Coogler's return went over very well on Twitter, not that the social media-shy director would see all the praise and story pitches.

Did Marvel Stealth-Reveal Black Panther 2's Release Date? The Disney and Fox merger should be complete long before Black Panther 2 starts coming together, so Coogler has a whole host of Marvel characters at his fingertips.

The sequel, which has yet to be announced by Marvel, will reportedly commence production in late 2019 or early 2020. Look forward to the next Black Panther in the future, where T'Challa will rebuild himself after his last appearance broke him down.

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. All these uncertainties and more will remain unanswered until Coogler actually writes the script - but it's good to know that he's officially back in the saddle for the sequel.
