The success of Black Panther is so monumental that a sequel was guaranteed the weekend it came out, needless to say. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the plans for the second Black Panther film, Kevin Feige hinted at the sequel current state in pre-production.
Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that. One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.
One thing that people continue to rave about Black Panther is the incredibly rich and realized world they managed to set up. With such a rich tapestry of characters and aspects of Wakanda, it’s no surprise that they’ve got a clear concise direction for the sequel. I’m personally hoping that they bring in the maniacal zealot Achebe into the mix and adapt more of Christopher Priest‘s run. Fingers crossed that they bring back Ryan Coogler and his all-star crew of creative forces.
