Wakanda forever! Since Black Panther was such a blockbuster, a sequel was inevitable, andin March.
But with the sequel announced so close to the release of the original movie, it will be a while before many details come to an end. Additionally, just two months after the release ofwe visited Wakanda again in where T & # 39; Challa ( ) occurred , Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and others in a huge combat scene in the African country (poor Okoye or maybe the Olympics).
When information about Marvel's Black Panther 2 is released, we will collect it here and try to separate the confirmed facts from the rumors and theories. (At the moment, rumors and theories are almost everything we have, but the truths will inevitably end.) We will update this page as we learn more.
As Fig confirmed Black Panther 2 and Entertainment Weekly said, "We'll absolutely do it (a sequel)," he did not give much details and certainly no release date. But a look at the Film Marvel program schedule gives some pointers.and arrive in 201
It's a great idea to beat as long as the hero is hot, but our guess is that 2021 is the earliest we'll see Black Panther 2, whatever it's ultimately called. In addition, Marvel has an open date for an unnamed movie on February 18, 2022. That's almost exactly four years after the first Black Panther and would give the series a nice symmetry.
On the Director's Chair
Although nothing is official, it seems clear that Marvel will do anything to get director Ryan Coogler behind the camera. When asked by Variety whether Coogler would direct the sequel, Feige said, "I hope so," and that he "absolutely" wanted him back. He will be back, apart from some contact.
"We definitely want Ryan to come back and that's being actively worked out," Feige told Collider. Much will happen if Ryan wants and no hurry, but I think we have an idea of when it will be. " Feige went on to say that Marvel will not announce any Post Avengers 4 films until Avengers 4,2019 comes out.
"We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to go with the second one," said Feige EW. Of course he does not say what these ideas are, but fans can look at the comics for particularly popular stories.
"Panthers have been around for over half a century in comics and there are many, many stories to tell," said Feige Variety. Panther has a rich history. He fought the KKK, fought Wakanda, ran a Skrull invasion, and saved Queen Ramonda from a white racist. Many of the stories from the comics would be well translated to the big screen.
Wakanda forever or at least for a while
We can guess where the movie is shot. When he finally showed T & # 39; Challa's home country Wakanda on screen, Black Panther Marvel presented a new and creative environment, not only for Black Panther solo films, but also for visits from his fellow Avengers. Almost the entire third act of Avengers: Infinity War was played in the fictitious African nation. The sequel is obliged to go back.
"Anchor point is a good way to describe Wakanda, especially as some of our other anchor points, Asgard, are gone," said Feige EW. Wakanda is a fascinating land that fans are starting to experience, and Marvel recognizes that the country has much more secrets to unlock.
Who's coming back for the sequel?
If you've seen Avengers: Infinity War (last warning of spoilers), you know that T & # 39; Challa is one of the many characters whoas Thanos the Universe rebalanced. ( Find out here.) But you also know that long before Black Panther 2 comes out, Avengers 4 2019 will hit the screens. We have and T & # 39; Challa will not be saved in any way. He'll be back like the Terminator.
Last weekend, Letitia Wright, who plays T & # 39; Challas tech wizard sister Shuri, said at the MCM Comic-Con in London that she is ready to join her big brother while T & # 39; Challa is missing / dead / unable to act. "To be exact comic book, yes," Wright said when asked what a wise answer was. It has not revealed any spoilers, but points out that this has happened in printing.
It is possible that not all Wakandans will return. In no case will Marvel Okoye or Shuri get rid of them. But M & # 39; Baku (Winston Duke) and W'Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya –) may be at risk. Someone has to go to increase the drama and make the whole Thanos fight meaningful. And while they are both great characters, they are more expendable than the big names. Some speculate that if T & # 39; Challa ever gets killed, the Black Panther coat will simply be passed to sister Shuri, but there's no way Boseman will get at least one (probably many) more movies in the headline ,
Recurring cast we believe we know
Of course, nothing is confirmed, but as we just mentioned, you can bet that your Vibranium holdings Chadwick Boseman are back and probably the bulk of the cast of the first film. Here is a reminder of who they are:
What about the villain?
Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) was a big villain in the first Black Panther movie. His fate seems pretty much final, but you never know it in the Marvel Universe. Kendrick Lamar, who curated and produced the Black Panther soundtrack, said.
A recent rumor from an unnamed source tells Metro UK that filmmakers "have not yet decided whether Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity, but if it's not likely (Donald Glover, aka rapper Childish Gambino) kind of villain . "
Director Ryan Coogler told Yahoo Movies he was interested in another Panther villain, Kraven the Hunter, but it sounds like the Sony series of films had plans for Kraven, probably in a Spider-Man movie ,
"I've always loved Kraven the Hunter in almost every iteration," Coogler said. "So there was a moment – Can I grab Kraven?" – And they were "No, you do not have Kraven." He was one where I thought, "Oh, man." But I do not even know if he worked in the movie we ran into, that was in the early days. That's fine. "Black Panther has many other juicy villains, including Doctor Doom, Achebe, King Cadaver, and others.
In the comics, Black Panther marries Storm of the X-Men, and when Theruns as planned, the X-Men can enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, .Storm was able to trigger thunder and lightning in Wakanda Nakias and T & # 39; endanger Challas relationship.
Who is Storm? She is an African-born mutant who grew up in America and is considered the first female protagonist of African descent in comics. controlling the weather, and she is an experienced Markswinerin, thief and capable fighter.Hall Berry has played in four films.In the comics are Storm and Black Panther Kinderschatze who get married and finally sch to oath. In the movies, marriage is probably out of the question, but romance is always on the table.
More than a sequel?
With the tremendous success of Black Panther it seems certain that there will be as many sequels as fans are willing to watch. Producer Nate Moore says the Wakanda characters will also appear in other films.
"Obviously, Panther is a big swing that we hope will continue many sequels and include some of those characters in other franchises, because I think there's a way to pollinate in interesting ways," he told Screen Rant.
