Posted On: October 12, 2018

Wakanda Forever!

As Ryan Coogler signed a deal to write and direct the sequel to Black Panther. Imparted by The Hollywood Reporter in an exclusive article.

There's been conversations and inquisitions about a Black Panther 2. It was speculated that Ryan Coogler would direct the sequel.

"In the weeks prior and after the film’s February release, both Marvel and Coogler’s camp were hounded about when a sequel deal would be inked"

Disclosed and reported by THR, Coogler is indeed directing and penning the next chapter of Black Panther. Ryan Coogler was patient and took his time with closing a deal for the sequence to Black Panther.

"Typically, a filmmaker is more than willing to quickly sign on for a follow-up, and a studio is eager to snap up a key piece of talent in the lead-up to or right after a successful opening. But Coogler’s camp shook off the peer pressure and took its time in making a deal, which occurred under the radar some time ago."

Production for the film is set to begin between 2019 and 2020.

In the meantime, Ryan Coogler is advancing developments for a new flick called Wrong Answer with Michael B. Jordan. Coogler also, wrote the upcoming Creed II movie. Collaborated with LeBron James, as the executive producer for Space Jam's epilogue.
