Ryan Coogler to Write and Direct ‘Black Panther 2’

Ryan Coogler Black Panther Variety Feature

Coogler forever! As in Ryan Coogler, the 32-year-old wunderkind behind 2018's highest-grossing comic book movie - heck, highest-grossing movie, period - Black Panther.

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.

Chadwick Boseman is expected to return in the starring role, as are others in the A-list ensemble. But we can always speculate, and the biggest questions we have right now are: when will it take place in the timeline of this reborn MCU, and which villain will Black Panther go up against?

Instagram is using new tools to detect bullying on the platform
Earlier this year, Instagram announced it would filter out bullying comments that aim to harass or upset users. It's unclear what else the technology can detect and whether it would work on images without captions.

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. Talking about the first part, the film didn't garnered critical acclaim by scoring 97 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes but also turned out to be huge money-spinner by collecting over $ 700 million at the domestic market and $ 1.3 Billion at the global market.

The Hollywood Reporter's sources claim Disney and Marvel's plan is to begin 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. It is unknown if "Black Panther 2" will now become his primary focus if he will still tries to squeeze that smaller film in.

Are you surprised to learn Coogler is back?
