Ryan Coogler Officially Writing And Directing Black Panther Sequel.

Ryan Coogler will be writing and directing Black Panther 2 with the production set to start filming in late 2019 or early 2020.

Marvel was keen to secure Coogler's services as soon as the record-breaking numbers came in on Black Panther's opening weekend, but the filmmaker wanted to take some time before opening talks.

Coogler is set to reunite with his Fruitvale Station, Creed and Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan on Wrong Answer, after which he'll begin working on T'Challa’s next big screen adventure with Marvel looking to begin production in late 2019 or early 2020.

Based on that filming schedule, it's likely that Black Panther 2 will arrive in theaters some time in 2021, and Marvel already has a February 12th date set that year, and given how good February was to the first movie, that may very well turn out to be the sequel's release date.
