  • Ryan Coogler Black Panther Variety Feature

Ryan Coogler will return to pen and direct the sequel to Black Panther, the Disney/Marvel blockbuster which has grossed $1.35 billion at the box office. And though that project will take up a lot of his time, it might not be the immediate film on his docket.

Marvel and Disney have made no announcement on the filming or release date for the sequel, but sources told The Hollywood Reporter Coogler would write the film next year and begin filming in late 2019 or early 2020.

A person close to the production who requested anonymity because they weren't authorized to announce the deal confirmed Coogler's return to the Marvel franchise on Thursday.

Of course, Marvel making a sequel to Black Panther shouldn't surprise anyone as it was one of the most successful films of the year, second only to Avengers: Infinity War.

However, when it comes to potential Oscar glory, Disney have chose to back just one of these horses, and have put Black Panther forward for Best Picture consideration.

Whether or not Black Panther and/or Infinity War makes it to the actual nominations, we'll find out in early 2019, and then the actual 91st Academy Awards will take place on Sunday 24 February. Critics pundits anticipate a best picture nomination for the film.

With T'Challa having fallen victim to Thanos' deadly finger-snap, Black Panther 2 remains in a curious position with no one now holding the mantle of Black Panther, though the events of Avengers 4 will likely have a large impact on the plot direction of the film.

"We had to make that movie to destroy a myth that Black movies don't succeed around the world", Feige said, "Unconscious bias is a real thing".
