'Black Panther' sequel is happening, Marvel Studios chief says

Posted March 10, 2018

In an interview given to Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige said that he knew exactly where to go with the second part devoted to the adventures of the king of Wakanda. "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", Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, revealed.

I saw the new Marvel movie Black Panther last weekend, a little later than most, and it was a really fun movie theater experience. While there is no concrete information regarding the second Black Panther film, the producer does reveal that the studio has "ideas and a pretty solid direction" for the next instalment in the intended series.

Even the most casual of metal fans would recognize that this is the same font as the most famous of Pantera logos. "I think there's lots of potential", he said. Currently, the Ryan Coogler-directed Black Panther is breaking records left and right and has disproved a number of old Hollywood myths.

If you're hoping for more diversity both on and off the screen when it comes to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the news that you're looking for. "Okoye, I think I'd watch three action films just Okoye". I'm not saying we're doing that, but I'm saying that we're intrigued by them.

Black Panther 2 hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but the movie's monumental box office performance basically makes it a give-in. "It was an honor to let them know...to let Chadwick [Boseman] know and Lupita [Nyong'o] know just how wonderful that film is and what it means to us". Even with a 50-60% drop from last week's domestic weekend total, Black Panther could still bring in between $26.5 to $33 million; a similar performance on the worldwide market would net another $23.1 to $28.9 million.

Looking ahead to Infinity War, Feige described the upcoming movie as a "climax" that will set up the eventual conclusion if Marvel's first 22 movie arc with the fourth and final still untitled Avengers movie in 2019.
