Halala! Black Panther 2 is on the way

Ryan Coogler Black Panther Variety Feature

Ryan Coogler has officially signed on to direct and write the reported Black Panther sequel.

Coogler forever! As in Ryan Coogler, the 32-year-old wunderkind behind 2018's highest-grossing comic book movie - heck, highest-grossing movie, period - Black Panther. Coogler is set to begin writing the script in early 2019, though whether Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole will also return to write alongside Coogler remains unknown at this time.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, Get on Up), Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Academy Award victor Lupita Nyong'o (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 12 Years a Slave), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, All Eyez on Me), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit trilogy, Sherlock), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Sicario), Letitia Wright (Urban Hymn, Glasgow Girls), Winston Duke (Person of Interest, Modern Family), with Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, London Has Fallen), with Academy Award victor Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lee Daniels' The Butler) and Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Sadly, this announcement did not come with a release date or any plot details, but given how fresh this news is, it's to be expected. Marvel had no comment.

On top of that, they're also planning on putting the movie forward for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song (for "All The Stars" by Kendrick and SZA), and six more categories, too.

They've made a decision to only put one of the movies forward for the Best Picture award.

With T'Challa having fallen victim to Thanos' deadly finger-snap, Black Panther 2 remains in a curious position with no one now holding the mantle of Black Panther, though the events of Avengers 4 will likely have a large impact on the plot direction of the film.

The crown may hang heavy on T'Challa's head, but for Coogler, it's gotta feel good to be king of both Wakanda and Marvel.
