Ryan Coogler May Direct Smaller Film Before 'Black Panther 2'

A fan cosplays as Black Panther from the Marvel Universe during the 2018 New York Comic Con at Javits Center

The Hollywood Reporter says the accomplished director has agreed to return to direct and write the sequel.

Ratifying Marvel fans' hopes for more of the Wakandan setting and storyline that director Ryan Coogler broke open with this year's Black Panther, Coogler reportedly has now agreed to write and direct a sequel to the box office-smashing film.

Chadwick Boseman is expected to return in the starring role, as are others in the A-list ensemble. When all said and done, the film brought in $700 million domestically and $1.35 billion worldwide.

Given the events of the Avengers: Infinity War ending and the heavily guarded secrets of Avengers 4, a new Black Panther movie presents an interesting challenge for Coogler, who is slated to begin writing the script next year.

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.
