Wakanda forever! As Black Panther proved such a blockbuster, a sequel was inevitable, andin March.
But with the sequel announced so close that the original movie was released, it will be a while before many details begin to pop out. In addition, just two months after the release ofwe visited Wakanda again in which contained Challa ( ), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and others in a huge campsite in the African country. (Poor Okoye or maybe the OS.)
And now, the original author director Ryan Coogler returns for the sequel, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. (We have reached both Disney and Coogler for comments and will update if we recall.)
However, Coogler said to Extra at the beginning of November that he has not thrown into the sequel yet. "I got nothing," he said after receiving the Visionary Award at the Indie Wire Awards. "I do not know anything. It's true, I'm saying. I do not know."
Coogler is quite good at keeping things secret, but as information about Marvel's Black Panther 2 rolls out, we will collect this, and try to distinguish the facts from the rumors and theories. (Right now the rumors and theories are almost all we have, but truths will inevitably be poured out.) We update this page as we learn more.
When Feige confirmed Black Panther 2, telling Entertainment Weekly, "We'll definitely do (a sequel)" he did not give much details, and certainly not a release date. But a look at the jam-packed Marvel movie schedule provides some clues.9, and it's far too early to film a second trip to Wakanda anyway. And a 2020 issue looked out of the question until and will be in 201 was apparently remarkable after the Disney / Marvel drama with .
Striking while the hero is hot is a good idea, but our guess is that 2021 is probably the earliest we will see Black Panther 2, no matter what it stops being named. Marvel still has an open date for an anonymous film on February 18, 2022; almost exactly four years after the first Black Panther, which would give the series a nice symmetry.
In the director's chair: Ryan Coogler again
From the beginning of the following conversations, it seems clear that Marvel will do what is required to get Ryan Coogler back behind the camera. The news was officially confirmed in October 2018 by many sales outlets. Coogler and Marvel did not respond to a request for comments, but he is back.
Who will be king?
"We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to go with the other," Feige told EW. Of course, he does not say what these ideas are, but fans can watch the series for especially popular storylines.
"Panther has existed for more than half a century in the comics, and there are many, many stories to tell," told Feige Variety. Panther has a rich history. He fought against KKK, hit a coup from Wakanda, treated a Skrull invasion and rescued Queen Ramonda from a white supremacist. Many of the stories from the series would be translated well to the big screen.
Wakanda Forever, or at least a while
We can guess where the movie will be set. When he finally showed Challa homeland Wakanda on screen, Black Panther Marvel gave a new and creative attitude, not just for Black Panther solo movies, but for visits from his colleagues in Avengers. Almost all three acts of Avengers: Infinity War were set in the fictional African nation. The sequel is required to return.
"Anchor point is a great way to describe Wakanda, especially as some of our other anchor points, Asgard, are gone," said Feige for EW. Wakanda is a fascinating country that fans have just begun to experience, and Marvel is well aware that the country has many more secrets to develop.
Who will be back for the sequel?
If you've seen Avengers: Infinity War, you know that T & # 39; Challa is one of the many characters thatwhen Thanos balances the universe. Find out this.) But you know so long before Black Panther 2 comes out, Avengers 4 will beat theaters in 2019. We have and that there is just no way that T & # 39; Challa will be saved in any way. Like The Terminator, he will be back.
This late weekend letitia Wright, who plays T & # 39; Challa's tech guide sister Shuri, told MCM Comic-Con in London that she's ready to go in for her big brother while T & # 39; Challa missing / dead / unable. "To be a bookbook exactly, yes," Wright said when asked, which was a smart answer. It did not give away any spoilers but points out that this has happened in print.
It is possible that not all Wakandans will return. No way will wonder to get rid of Okoye or Shuri. But M & # 39; Baku (Winston Duke) and W & # 39; Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya –) are potentially in danger. Somebody has to go to the drama and make the whole Thanos battle meaningful. And while they are both big characters, they are more interchangeable than the big names.
Some suggest that if Challa is ever killed, Black Panther's robe will simply pass to sister Shuri, but there's no way Boseman does not get the title at least one (probably many) more movies.
Repeating Casting (We Believe)
Of course, nothing is confirmed, but as we just mentioned, you can bet on your Vibranium holdings. Chadwick Boseman comes back and probably most of the first film's casting. Here's a reminder of who they are:
What about the villain?
Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) was a big villain in the first Black Panther movie. His fate seems pretty nice, but you never know in Marvel universe. Kendrick Lamar, who curated and produced the Black Panther soundtrack, has said.
A new reputation from a named source tells Metro UK that filmmaker "does not yet decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in any capacity, but if he can not [Donald Glover] can play some sort of villain."
Coogler told Yahoo Movies that he was interested in another Panther villain, Kraven the Hunter, but it seems that the Sony series of movies has plans for Kraven, probably in a Spider-Man movie.
"I've always loved the hunter in almost every iteration," said Coogler. "Then there was a moment -" Can I get the Kraven? "and they were" Nah, you do not have the requirements. "He was one where I thought" Oh, man. "But I do not even know if he would have worked in the movie we ended up being the first few days. "
That's okay. Black Panther has lots of other juicy villains, including Doctor Doom, Achebe, King Cadaver and others.
In the series, Black Panther marries X-Mens Storm, and thecontinues as a planned customer, X-Menna, entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which . Storm could shut down some thunder and lightning in Wakanda and threaten Nakia and T & Challa relationship.
Who is Storm? She is an African born mutant raised in America and credited as the first major female character of African descent in series. Her powers include airplane and ability to control weather, and she is expert, thief and skilled fighter. Halle Berry has played her in four movies. In the series, Storm and Black Panther are childhood hearts that marry and eventually differ. In the movies, marriage is probably out of the question, but romance is always on the table.
More than a sequel?
Withit seems certain there will be as many followers as fans are willing to watch. Producer Nate Moore says the Wakanda characters will appear in other movies.
"Panther is obviously a big swing as we hope to continue through many followers and take some of these characters and put them in other franchises because I think there is a way to cross pollination in an interesting way," he said. screen layout.
