Ryan Coogler inks deal to write and direct ‘Black Panther’ sequel

Black Panther Ryan Coogler

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Coogler has already begun thinking about the script well ahead of Marvel's official press release.

Chadwick Boseman is expected to return in the starring role, as are others in the A-list ensemble.

The timeline for Black Panther 2 remains unclear, as Marvel has yet to officially announce the next slate of films for the Marvel Cinematic Universe beyond the still untitled Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home, though a shuffling of Disney's release calendar has suggested a release date of February 12, 2021 for the sequel. Marvel had no comment.

The global cultural phenomenon of Black Panther dominated the box office charts, emerging as the third biggest movie of all time domestically with over $665 million - the first film in eight years to spend five weeks at No. 1 - and rising to the global top 10 of all time with over $1.3 billion. Critics pundits anticipate a best picture nomination for the film.

The sequel, which has yet to be announced by Marvel, will reportedly commence production in late 2019 or early 2020. Sources had also told Variety that Coogler was possibly planning to shoot a smaller film before getting into the sequel - one possibility is his version of "12 Angry Men".

Despite seeing Black Panther bite the dust in Avengers: Infinity War, we all knew he'd be coming back for another outing - no way Marvel was letting this burgeoning new franchise die off without a fight, even if they continue to try to convince us the film could take place before Avengers: Infinity War. He is repped by WME. As Hollywood Reporter indicated, filmmakers are often drawn into contract negotiations as soon as a film is deemed lucrative, but in the case of Coogler and his creative staff, waited until they were met with ideal terms.
