Ryan Coogler Reportedly Set To Write And Direct ‘Black Panther’ Sequel

“Black Panther” filmmaker Ryan Coogler has reached an agreement to write and direct a sequel to the 2018 Marvel mega-blockbuster film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Coogler-helmed “Black Panther” is Marvel’s highest domestic grossing film ever, earning just over $700 million in the U.S. and $1.3 billion worldwide.

“Black Panther” wasn’t just big with fans and at the box office. It achieved critical acclaim, landing a “certified fresh” 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The film, which starred a mostly black cast, also struck a cultural chord by redefining the merits of black-led films for mainstream audiences.

Coogler rose to prominence with his 2015 hit “Creed” featuring Micheal B. Jordan, who also stars in “Black Panther” as the villain Erik Killmonger.
