With the first Black Panther film from Marvel Studios being such a huge box office and critical hit, a sequel was only inevitable. What was less certain, however, was the film’s director and co-writer Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed) returning. No need to worry anymore, as THR confirmed that Coogler will return as writer-director for the Black Panther follow-up.

The deal was slow in the making until recently, with Coogler being said to begin writing the screenplay next year with a production start in either late 2019 or early 2020. A release date from Marvel Studios and Disney is unknown at the moment, but expect Disney to make a push for the first film in their Oscar campaigning, especially without a “popular film category” anymore.
