A sequel was being anticipated for long, especially after the global success of the 2018 film as well as a stunning award haul. Marvel chief Kevin Feige took the stage at an event on Saturday to share the exciting news. Starting with a playful banter, Feige tried hard to convince Coogler into revealing the plot, official title or the first act for ‘Black Panther II’, but as any true fan would know, no spoiler is ever revealed until the film is released.
Coogler said the team is “taking their time with it” in order to get it right.
‘Black Panther’ introduced actor Chadwick Boseman as the titular superhero. The film was regarded to be Marvel’s first movie to be led by a virtually all-African-American cast. It was also praised for showing women of substance working as allies of protagonist T’Challa (Boseman) to tackling relevant subjects.
It also featured Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Forrest Whitaker, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett.
The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best picture — a first for a Marvel superhero movie. It took home three, including best original score Oscar.
‘Black Panther’ was set shortly after ‘Captain America: Civil War’ with T’Challa returning home to the secret African nation of Wakanda to become king. It is yet to be seen what story will the sequel explore.
