Good movie.

Not the best in the franchise, but worth the watch for sure.

I concur. Really great overall film. CGI was a bit overdone, making the action sequences somewhat blurry. Acting, story, dialogue, camera work, music, all top notch.

It was alright. I personally thought Ragnarok was better. As has been said already, I think the cgi action sequences were a tad overdone. I also think the overall message of race relations was a bit too on the nose. Regardless, I had a good time watching this one.

The Black Panther Director's Commentary Reveals the Sad Fate of Killmonger's Mother



Erik Killmonger’s tragic life is even more tragic than you thought.

In Black Panther, Killmonger’s backstory includes a mother whose presence is hugely influential but never seen: his father, N’Jobu (Sterling K Brown), fell in love with her, and that love caused N’Jobu to open his mind to the outside world, a choice that would come to transform Wakanda forever. But what happens to her?

The answer, apparently, is connected to a scene early in the film, when N’Jobu and Zuri (played in the flashback by Denzel Whitaker) discussing something in an Oakland apartment.

“The idea was when you see those guys talking over the paperwork in the beginning of the film, they’re talking about a way to break her out of jail,” Ryan Coogler said on the Black Panther commentary track, as revealed by The Hollywood Reporter. “The idea was they never got her out, and she passed away in prison, so Killmonger didn’t come up with a mom either.”

What a hard life lived by Wakanda’s prodigal son. More details like these will likely be shared next week, on May 8th, when Black Panther releases on digital home video and May 15th, when it comes out on Blu-ray.

Marvel Is Open To Having A New Black Panther In Sequels






T'Challa may not be the only one to suit up in Black Panther 2 and beyond. The introduction of Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War paved the way for him and his country of Wakanda to be a prominent force in the MCU moving forward. Fans instantly became fans of what Chadwick Boseman brought to the role, but director Ryan Coogler's ability to flesh out the world in Black Panther helped make it a box office juggernaut.
One of the biggest parts of Black Panther that audiences responded to was the richness of the world and these characters. T'Challa's solo film is more of an ensemble, since it gave Okoye (Danai Gurira), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), M'Baku (Winston Duke), and Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) plenty of time to shine. Fans are even already waiting for the day Shuri becomes the new Black Panther, and it may not be too long before someone else other than T'Challa suits up.



Screen Rant spoke to Black Panther producer Nate Moore as part of the film's release on home video. During the interview, we asked him about the chances of seeing other versions of Black Panther on the big screen. Even though the role is still Boseman's, they aren't putting any mandates that he must be the only one to take on this mantle.
One thing I like to tell Ryan is, the Black Panther is a mantle as much as it is a person, so we're not restricted by anything, because the truth is, there's a lot of different ways to go back to Wakanda and have a good time and continue to explore the themes that made the first film so resonant.
If Marvel does decide to have some fun and give different characters the chance to be the Black Panther, they've got quite a few different options to play with. The suit is traditionally for whoever is the ruler of Wakanda and there is precedence in the comics for Shuri to become the Black Panther. Whether that happens in the immediate future or isn't until Black Panther 5, Shuri seems like the best bet to explore as a different take. However, Nakia could one day have a path to the title if she and T'Challa marry. There's also the chance that M'Baku could become the ruler of Wakanda eventually, providing for a very different take on the character.
As interesting as it may be to see some other versions of Black Panther, that is hopefully something that isn't going to happen for an extended period of time. Boseman is terrific as T'Challa and only has three appearances (and just one solo movie) done so far. There's still room to explore the character even if he isn't the Black Panther, which was a big part of Black Panther, but we still need to see how his reign plays out for a few more films. One day down the line it'll be time for someone else to become the Black Panther, but right now there's still plenty to do with Boseman's take.

'Black Panther 2': Donald Glover Reportedly in Talks for New Role, Michael B. Jordan Return Possible






After Black Panther shattered expectations earlier this year, it looks as though director Ryan Coogler is going above and beyond in his planning of the film's sequel, and courting some big names to join the franchise's ranks.
Sources close to Metro UK are reporting that Coogler has been in "informal talks" with actor/producer/musician Donald Glover for a role in Black Panther 2.


"Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther's sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres," one source says. "One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino [Glover's musical moniker]. Nothing is set in stone, but 'informal talks' [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino, and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen."
If this does come to fruition, it will be yet another hit Disney project for Glover, who is starring in this weekend's Solo: A Star Wars Story as young Lando Calrissian, a role made famous by Billy Dee Williams. Glover is also voicing Simba in Jon Favreau's upcoming live action adaptation of The Lion King.

Glover and Coogler already have a close working relationship, as Donald and his brother Stephen were consultants to Coogler on the first Black Panther script.
In addition to Glover's appearance, the source noted that the powers that be have been considering a possible return for Michael B. Jordan as the popular villain Erik Killmonger.


"They're still yet to decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity," the source noted, "but if he doesn't it's likely Gambino may play some kind of villain."
While comic characters return from the dead more often than we'd like to admit, and Killmonger has resurrected in the comic books, it seems unlikely that Coogler would actually bring him back for the film's sequel, considering how profound and important his death was at the end of the first Black Panther. The more likely scenario is that Killmonger appears in some sort of flashback or scene in the Ancestral Plane.
Regardless of how or when they appear, both Glover and Jordan are extraordinary talents, and Marvel fans would love to see them involved inBlack Panther 2.

'Black Panther': Donald Glover And Michael B. Jordan Rumors Debunked

Black Panther 2 won't bring Donald Glover or Michael B. Jordan around for the sequel, after all.

After a rumor caught fire on Tuesday, the word was that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler was quietly in talks with Donald Glover (also known as Childish Gambino) and Erik Killonger actor Michael B. Jordan to have both join the cast of the sequel. Fans were puzzled, as Jordan's character was killed to end the first film and Glover already plays Prowler in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as introduced in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Now, a new claim from popular super hero movie scooper Umberto Gonzalez states that the rumor started by Metro is untrue. "'No truth whatsoever' to that Metro Uk story about Black Panther 2/Donald Glover, Michael B. Jordan rumor," Gonzalez wrote on Twitter, referencing a quote from an unnamed source.

Still, Black Panther 2 promises to explore the world of Wakanda more thoroughly, as executive producer of the first film Nate Moore shared some details with ComicBook.com, including the "hope" of getting Coogler to return as director.

"We know there's a ton more story to tell in Wakanda because even in the two hours we had there were ideas we left on the table just because of time," Moore said. "And the good news is, because ultimately we have a good insight on what all the films are doing, we knew what Infinity War and what Avengers 4 next year will do and are able to sort of plan accordingly. So, I think there are great stories that will feel like the necessary next storytelling beat from what you've seen in Black Panther, but also carry the ball forward from what happened, the very real thing that happened at the end of Avengers 3 and what will again happen next May. So it's all been planned out to as much as we plan anything out frankly, with room for great ideas to come and surprise us, but we're excited. There's still a ton of story left to tell."

Regarding the recent comments of an all-female Wakanda film, Moore speaks enthusiastically: "It's definitely possible," Moore said. "It's all about what is the best idea. I think the female characters in Black Panther are so resonant and do so well in their own right. They make their own decision, they move the story forward. Nakia saves Wakanda. I think there's ways to tell stories with them separately. I think there's ways to continue their story in sort of Black Panther 2 and beyond. So there's a lot of different ways to slice it. It's just, what is the story that we have to tell that feels undeniable? I'm hesitant to say what comes first, but I do know there are ideas that I could service both frankly."

'Black Panther' Theory Suggests Killmonger May Have a Son



One of the great standouts of Black Panther was Michael B. Jordan's Killmonger. His complex and realistic motivations made the character's villainous actions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe not only believable but made Killmonger one of its most popular villains.


Now, despite Killmonger's death at the end of Black Panther and months since the film debuted in theaters, the question remains: could Killmonger's legacy -- and his grudge against Wakanda -- live on? One theory thinks so, thanks to a secret son.


At the end of Black Panther, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) go to Oakland, California where they establish the first-ever Wakandan outreach center at the building where Killmonger's father N'Jobu (Sterling K. Brown) died at King T'Chaka's (John Kani) hand for his betrayal of Wakanda by working with Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) to steal vibranium. After revealing the presence of his Royal Talon Flyer to some kids playing basketball in the parking lot of the building, one boy hangs behind and asks T'Challa who he is. It's this kid who some fans think might be Killmonger's son.


In general, it's not an impossible concept. While Killmonger was a very focused young man -- Everett Ross explains that he graduated from Annapolis at 19 before going on to MIT and becoming a Navy SEAL -- he could have had a relationship in his youth that led to him having a son. As Killmonger has proven himself to be a very intense individual, it's even possible that the child's mother wouldn't have told him leading to the son growing up without his father's presence in his life as one could argue that Killmonger wouldn't leave his own son without a father the way he was.


It's an idea that works with the film visually as well. When we first meet Killmonger, it's as a child named Erik playing basketball outside in the same parking lot noticing the presence of a similar Royal Talon Flyer before running inside to find his father's body. The actor playing the boy who speaks with T'Challa even looks a little bit like N'Jobu with a similar physical carriage and bearing to Killmonger's.
If Killmonger did have an unknown son, it could set up for future conflict within the world of Black Panther. Given that one of the things that drove Killmonger was the poverty and injustice endured by black people not just in his Oakland neighborhood but the world at large, if the son grew up in similar circumstances -- particularly if he heard stories of his absent father's life -- he may also harbor a similar rage towards Wakanda even with their efforts to open up to the world. This is especially true considering that the state of the world and Wakanda post-Avengers: Infinity War is very different than it was at the end of Black Panther.


What do you think about the possibility of Killmonger having a son? Let us know your take on this theory in the comments below.

‘Black Panther 2’: Ryan Coogler to Write and Direct Marvel Sequel




Everyone had hoped and assumed this was happening, and now it’s official. Ryan Coogler will return to write and direct Black Panther 2. Coogler’s first Black Panther was a huge hit, but the filmmaker’s deal to helm the sequel had been kept under-wraps until now. Production on the sequel will likely start in late 2019 or early 2020.

THR has the news about Ryan Coogler staying on as the Black Panther 2 director. Coogler’s return seems like an obvious decision – under his guiding hand, Black Panther took in $700 million domestically and more than $1.3 billion worldwide, and there’s even serious Oscar talk for the film floating around right now. In other words, Marvel and Disney would’ve been nuts not to sign Coogler on for another film. In the past, Marvel Studios President Keven Feige said of Coogler’s possible return: “We definitely want Ryan to come back and that’s actively being worked out right now. When will it be? A lot of it will be when Ryan wants to and not rushing anything, but I think we have an idea of when it will be.”
Per THR, Coogler took his time with the deal to write and direct the sequel rather than rushing headlong into a quick agreement. The deal was finalized some time ago, but we’re all just learning about it now. It’s still too early to know just what a Black Panther sequel will be about, and for the time being, Black Panther himself – Chadwick Boseman‘s as T’Challa – has been snapped out of existence by Thanos. One could assume that T’Challa’s sister as Shuri, played so memorably by Letitia Wright, could take over since she survived the snap. But come on – we all know Avengers 4 is going to reverse things in some way, and T’Challa will be back in action soon enough.
While Disney and Marvel have yet to announce anything final, early plans indicate Coogler will start writing the film early next year, with plans to begin production in late 2019 or early 2020. No official release date has been announced by Marvel yet, but we probably won’t see Black Panther 2 until sometime in 2021. Disney has blocked out May 7, 2021 for an “Untitled Marvel Film”, so perhaps that’s when Black Panther 2 will hit theaters. That’s just a guess though.
In the meantime, Coogler is developing his next directorial effort, Wrong Answer, which will star frequent collaborator (and Black Panther co-star) Michael B. Jordan. The movie tells the “true story of how Atlanta high school educators participated in an intricate, systemic standardized-test cheating scandal in 2013.”

'Black Panther' Fan Transcribes N'Jobu's Heartbreaking Journal





Of all the big movie franchises in existence, the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have the most dedicated of all the fanbases. Day after day, the MCU faithful spend time digging through past films, trying to peek into every nook and cranny for new and exciting secrets. Today, it's Black Panther that gets a fresh look.
Remember the scene in Black Panther where Killmonger takes the Heart-Shaped Orb, and he goes back to his father's apartment in Oakland? Killmonger reads his father's journal to figure out what to do next and what purpose he could fulfill as king of Wakanda. Until now, that has simply been a journal entry to further the plot, but one Marvel fan has paused and studied the writing, transcribing its contents for all of us to read.


As expected, the entry is a letter to N'Jobu's son, N'Jadaka. Here's what it says:
“Ungubani? Who are you? I asked this question of myself many times. Often times, I do not know. But I do know I am no longer the man my country knew. Maybe love? My son?

"It has all changed me. T’Chaka must see what we can do, how we can change the course of time for the people who struggle so much in this land. Strangers to me, but my brothers and sisters still. How can I look at them, with the same skin as me, stolen from the same place I came from and not reach out to them? How can I sit idly by and watch in pain and return to Wakanda as if there was nothing to see at all?
Who am I? A war dog who will not leave the lost tribe behind again. Who are you, my son? You will ask this one day and know the answer: N’Jadaka, son of N’Jobu.”

This letter solidified Killmonger's belief that he did belong not only in Wakanda, but in charge of it. He knew better than anyone how both people in Wakanda, and people in poverty existed. After reading this letter, he was more sure than ever before that he could lead nations.
What do you think of N'Jobu's letter? Will the spirits of these characters play a role in the Black Panther sequel? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below

Ryan Coogler Reveals His Approach for 'Black Panther 2'





After Black Panther became one of the biggest box office hits of the year, and sparked a worldwide social movement, it was no surprise that Marvel Studios was quick to bring back writer/director Ryan Coogler for the film's sequel. Unlike the first movie however, Coogler knows that there is an added pressure this time around.
Not only does the filmmaker have to once again produce a great big-budget film with beloved comic book characters, but he also has the added challenge of keeping pace with the success - both critical and financial - of its predecessor.


While speaking with IndieWire this past week, Coogler talked about the added challenge of creating a sequel, something he has yet to do in his short career.
“I think the pressure is kind of always going to be there,” Coogler said. “I’ve had a chance to make three feature films, each one of them had its own very specific type of pressure. In the process of it, it feels insurmountable each time.”

Despite the added pressure, Coogler is sticking to his always-cool demeanor, focusing just as hard on Black Panther 2 as every other movie he's directed to this point.
“When it comes to making a sequel, I’ve never done it before, a sequel to something that I’ve directed myself,” he added. “So I think there’s gonna be a lot of pressure there, but what we’re going to try to do is just focus on the work, like we always do. Really try to go step by step and try to quiet everything else around us, really focus on trying to make something that has some type of meaning.”


As of now, Coogler has yet to begin work on the second Black Panther movie, and that likely won't take place until 2019. However, when the time finally comes, it sounds like Coogler will be ready for the challenge.

'Black Panther' Star Letitia Wright Confirmed to Return for Sequel



Black Panther 2 might still be a ways away, but we may have just learned the first cast member who is confirmed to return.




A recent report from Deadline, which announced Letitia Wright and John Boyega's casting in Hold Back the Stars, included a particularly interesting footnote with regards to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the report reveals, Wright "will reprise [her role as Shuri] in the Black Panther sequel and most recently wrapped the Avengers film coming next summer."


For some Marvel fans, this will surely be a surprise, as Shuri was one of the few Marvel characters whose fate was left up in the air at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. While Shuri did play a role in that film - attempting to help sever Vision's connection the Mind Stone - she wasn't shown in the massive montage of characters fading or not fading into dust.


Granted, this Avengers 4 and Black Panther 2 news might not entirely spell out Shuri's Avengers: Infinity War fate, but it does hint that audiences haven't seen the last of her in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And this news will probably support the ever-growing theory that Shuri could suit up as the Black Panther - especially now that her brother, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), was one of Thanos' casualties.


"If that's meant to happen then why not?" Wright told ComicBook.com earlier this year. "But my thing is: where we meet her now in the Marvel Universe, she's young, she's preparing, she's just into technology, she's creating, she's just really fun and really focused on that. So, if that's meant to happen, then cool, but at the moments, hey, man, Chadwick [Boseman] is killing as Black Panther! I'm happy to help out with the gadgets for now. If that's meant to be, it'll be, but he's amazing as Black Panther."
"We know there's a ton more story to tell in Wakanda because even in the two hours we had there were ideas we left on the table just because of time," MCU producer Nate Moore told ComicBook.com after Avengers: Infinity War. "And the good news is, because ultimately we have a good insight on what all the films are doing, we knew what Infinity War and what Avengers 4 next year will do and are able to sort of plan accordingly. So, I think there are great stories that will feel like the necessary next storytelling beat from what you've seen in Black Panther, but also carry the ball forward from what happened, the very real thing that happened at the end of Avengers 3 and what will again happen next May. So it's all been planned out to as much as we plan anything out frankly, with room for great ideas to come and surprise us, but we're excited. There's still a ton of story left to tell."

Michael B. Jordan Rumored To Return As Erik Killmonger In BLACK PANTHER 2

Despite the fact that the villainous Erik Killmonger died at the end of Black Panther, one of the movie's cast members may have now spoiled the fact that Michael B. Jordan will return in the sequel...




Black Panther introduced Erik Killmonger, a villain who was up there with Loki and Thanos as one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's best bad guys. Unfortunately, the decision was made to kill him off and while that made for an emotional and impactful scene, it still would have been nice to see him stick around for the planned sequel from director Ryan Coogler.

However, it now appears as if T'Challa's cousin could get a second chance on the big screen.

Angela Bassett recently talked to Entertainment Tonight about the Marvel Studios movie and claimed that everyone will be returning for Black Panther 2, "including Michael B."

We never actually saw Killmonger's funeral and it's feasible that T'Challa and Shuri could have found a way to save the villain after he pulled that spear out of his chest. With time-travel rumoured to factor into Avengers: Endgame, it's possible that could also explain his return, but whatever the case may be, it doesn't feel like the character's story is over.

Black Panther 2 Rumor Claims Michael B. Jordan Will Return

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering a bold new era with Phase 4, which will explore the new reality of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame. One of the most highly-anticipated Phase 4 MCU movies is no doubt Black Panther 2, and we're once again hearing reports that the sequel could be bringing back none other than Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger!
According to Marvel Scooper "Roger Wardell's" supposed Phase 4 leak report, Black Panther 2will feature an appearance from Erik Killmonger, who died at the end of the first film. So how could Killmonger show up onscreen in Black Panther 2? Here's the current rumor (via Independent UK):
"Wardell claims that Jordan’s character won’t be resurrected, but will exist in Wakanda’s ”spiritual plane”. He also suggests the film will be politically charged and teases the arrival of the Queen Divine Justice, a princess secretly raised in America by one of T’Challa’s warriors."
This isn't the first time we've heard whispers that Michael B. Jordan could be showing up in Black Panther 2; back in January, Angela Bassett and here husband Courtney B. Vance were attending the SAG Awards, where they (may have) dropped the spoiler that Jordan would be returning in the sequel:
"Asked by ET at the Screen Actors Guild Awards if 'everybody' is reuniting for the sequel, Bassett answered, 'I would assume so.'
Added Vance, 'Yes, just go ahead and say it, yes. Everyone will be there. Just yes, yes.'
On Jordan’s Erik ‘Killmonger’ Stevens, who seemed to have died from wounds sustained in battle with true Wakandan king T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Bassett said, “[We didn’t technically see him] go into the ocean, no.”
'Including Michael B., yes,' Vance added."
At the time of hearing that quote, we here at Comicbook.com even speculated that Wakanda's spiritual plane would be the easiest way for Killmonger to appear in the sequel:
"Previously, both T’Challa and Erik communicated with their dead fathers through a ritual visit to the Ancestral Plane. Such a sequence could be used to involve Jordan, if Killmonger wasn’t saved or somehow resurrected."

Ryan Coogler Is Now Working on Black Panther 2 Story



There's no question that Black Panther was an undisputed hit for Marvel Studios, joining their $1 Billion Club with an impressive box office. And ever since the film premiered to critical and fan acclaim — not to mention Oscar nominations — fans have been eager to get a sequel in the world of Wakanda. It didn't take long for Marvel to announce Black Panther 2 was in the works, but there's been little development since then.
Now we know for sure that Ryan Coogler is at work on the sequel to Black Panther, according to Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige himself. While speaking with BET about the potential for Killmonger's return, Feige shot that rumor down but confirmed a big piece of news in the process.
"The honest answer to that is that is pure rumor and speculation, because Mr. Coogler is just only in recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie," said Feige. "It’s early, so nothing is set yet in any way that far, because Mr. Coogler is sitting down and will share it with [producer] Nate Moore and myself in coming weeks."
Coogler is taking his time to make sure he gets Black Panther 2 just right, as he himself explained when it was announced he was returning to write and direct the movie. He spoke with IndieWire about the pressure of following up a critical and commercial blockbuster, hoping to live up to expectations.
“I think the pressure is kind of always going to be there,” Coogler said. “I’ve had a chance to make three feature films, each one of them had its own very specific type of pressure. In the process of it, it feels insurmountable each time.”
But he's still focused on making Black Panther 2 the best film it can be, and not focusing on the expectations.
“When it comes to making a sequel, I’ve never done it before, a sequel to something that I’ve directed myself,” he added. “So I think there’s gonna be a lot of pressure there, but what we’re going to try to do is just focus on the work, like we always do. Really try to go step by step and try to quiet everything else around us, really focus on trying to make something that has some type of meaning.”


Feige spoke with EW last year after the premiere of Black Panther and explained that the sequel was in the works, though he didn't offer any more concrete details of what fans should expect.


"One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one."

Black Panther 2: Kevin Feige Addresses Rumor of Killmonger's Return



When Black Panther premiered in theaters last year, it introduced one of the most effective and cutthroat villains who's not nicknamed "the Mad Titan" into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Erik Killmonger. The renegade Wakandan royal engineered an coup d'etat and nearly killed T'Challa before he was finally laid to rest by the rightful ruler of the African kingdom. It's no wonder that fans are hopeful to see him again in a future Marvel Studios film.
And while rumors abound that writer and director Ryan Coogler plans to bring back Killmonger in Black Panther 2, possibly in the Ancestral Plane where T'Challa communicates with his ancestors, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that is not the case.
"Pure rumor," Feige stated to BET. Ouch.
He went on to add that so far, nothing is in the table because Coogler has not yet even put the pen to paper for the story of Black Panther 2.
"The honest answer to that is that is pure rumor and speculation, because Mr. Coogler is just only in recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie," explained Feige. "It’s early, so nothing is set yet in any way that far, because Mr. Coogler is sitting down and will share it with [producer] Nate Moore and myself in coming weeks."
These rumors have been going around for a while, even perpetuated by the stars of the film. Danai Gurira and Kilmmonger actor Michael B. Jordan jokingly talked about it with Variety earlier this year.
"Killmonger comes back," Gurira said with a laugh, prompting Jordan to get in on the fun.
"You did it now," he added.
Jordan has previously spoken at length about the intense training process for playing Killmonger, revealing that he even had to seek mental help in order to process his emotions while acting in the role.
"It was one of those things that I didn't know what was going on," Jordan said on The Bill Simmons Podcast. "I never was in a character for that long of a period of time and was, I guess, that dark, that lonely, that painful. So coming out of it, I thought, 'Oh yeah, business as usual. I can just go back home, I'll cut my hair off, and everything will be back to normal.'"

"I found myself kind of in the routine of being isolated and went out of my way to make sure I was by myself and didn't say too much more than the usual," Jordan added. "Once I got finished wrapping the movie, it took me some time to talk through how I was feeling and why I was feeling so sad and like a little bit depressed."

Black Panther 2 Has No Release Date, but Guirara Confirms Okoye's Return



The film slate released by Marvel Studios at SDCC this year contained plenty of exciting titles set for release between this year and 2021, but beyond that, plans are vague. And while studio president Kevin Feige reconfirmed the development of a Black Panther sequel, he didn't provide a release date, or any other information, about the anticipated follow-up.
In an interview with MTV News, however, actress Danai Guirara was asked about what she knew of the highly anticipated film, namely whether or not Killmonger will be making a return. Of course, Guirara was hesitant in answering that question -- not a surprise, considering Marvel Studios tends to be secretive about these matters -- but she did surrender one crucial detail: Okoye will be returning."Literally, I have no information. That's the beauty of our conversation right now [...] Mr. Coogler [director of Black Panther] says, 'Tell them we're working hard -- and you're in it.'"


Wakanda's mighty general of the Dora Milaje last appeared in Avengers: Endgame (directed by Joe and Antony Russo) as a member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, having survived Thanos' snap, or, as it's referred to in the MCU, the Blip. In the wake of T'Challa's disappearance at the had of Thanos, she saw to the wellbeing of Africa until it was time to join the Avengers in the final fight against the Mad Titan and his Black Order.


Marvel Studios has not formally announced the Black Panther sequel, so details regarding a release date or the cast are scarce. All that is certain is that Ryan Coogler is returning to write and direct the film, which will star Chadwick Boseman and Danai Guirara.

Namor Will Reportedly Debut In Black Panther 2 As A Villain

While some would argue that Black Panther is a bit overrated, there’s no doubt that it’s a quality film with good characters and an engaging plot. We’re all waiting for the inevitable sequel, which doesn’t seem to be a part of phase four but could easily find a spot for phase five. No details for Black Panther 2 have been revealed but a rumor from We Got This Covered may have given us a hot detail; Namor might be the movie’s villain.
That’s right, Namor the Sub-Mariner might finally make his MCU debut and pairing him up with T’Challa is a great call, if the rumor is true. Namor and T’Challa have butted heads in the comics numerous times so we can’t wait to see how the MCU will explore this relationship.
Avengers: Endgame may have teased Namor’s existence in the MCU. During the five-year time jump, Okoye is reporting to Black Widow about their findings, discussing how there have been underwater earthquakes and they’ll handle the situation by not handling it. Though not a major shout out to the character, this could be a small tease for Namor and the Atlanteans. Only time will tell but let’s hope they do Namor right.
Currently, Black Panther 2 hasn’t been officially revealed yet, though we do know that the film appears to be in pre-production. Ryan Coogler will return to direct the sequel and most of the cast is expected to return.

BLACK PANTHER Actor Martin Freeman Confirms Return As Everett Ross For Marvel Studios Sequel

It's been a while since we heard anything about Marvel and Ryan Coogler's sequel to Black Panther, but actor Martin Freeman has now (pretty much) confirmed that he will return as CIA Agent Everett Ross...




It looks like Everett Ross will be back to aid T'Challa in Black Panther 2.

While speaking to Collider about his new film Ode To Joy, Sherlock star Martin Freeman all-but confirmed that he will reprise the role of the prickly CIA Agent for Marvel and Ryan Coogler's sequel. “As far as I know, I will be [returning],” Freeman said. “As far as I know, I will be in another Black Panther. That’s my understanding. As to when that will happen, I don’t know.”

BLACK PANTHER 2: Martin Freeman Sheds Some Light On When Shooting Begins On The Sequel

We know a Black Panther sequel is coming in Phase 5, & new comments from actor Martin Freeman (Everett Ross) may shed some light on when the movie will start shooting and when it could arrive in theaters.




Black Panther was a box office hit, a cultural phenomenon, and the first Marvel Studios movie to receive a "Best Picture" Oscar nomination. We know that director Ryan Coogler is returning to take the helm of the sequel, and while Kevin Feige confirmed that it's on the way in Phase 5 during Comic-Con, Black Panther 2 still doesn't have a release date.

Well, thanks to star Martin Freeman we may now have some idea when it will arrive in theaters.


Asked when he'll start work on the follow-up, Freeman said "the last I heard, we won't be doing it next year," before adding that, "it might be 2021 when we’re making the next Black Panther. That's all I know." If that's the case, we can expect to see T'Challa return to the big screen in 2022 or 2023. That's quite a wait, but an inevitable consequence of the MCU now featuring so many characters.

Freeman was also asked about where Everett Ross was during "The Snap" and explained that, as far as he's aware, his character remains alive and well and has done for the past five years. "I think so, yeah. No, no one's told me that he died."

So, some fairly vague comments, but ones which definitely give us a better idea of when we might see Black Panther 2 in theaters. With any luck, something official will be announced at D23 this weekend.

‘Black Panther II’ Reveals May 2022 Release Date [D23]




Marvel’s Black Panther was a phenomenon. Not only did the movie earn rave reviews and take in boffo box office, it was also nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Can Marvel strike gold twice with Black Panther II? There’s definitely a damn good chance, since Ryan Coogler is returning to write and direct. The first tease of Black Panther 2 popped-up at this year’s D23 Expo – here’s what we saw.



Ryan Coogler appeared onstage at D23 to reveal that the treatment for Black Panther II, which is still untitled, is complete. Coogler was tight-lipped on who the villain would be for the sequel to the 2018 smash hit, but did announce the theatrical release date would be May 6, 2022.


“I’m working on it trying to give fans something special,” Coogler said.


Chadwick Boseman returns as T’Challa / Black Panther in Black Panther 2, Ryan Coogler’s follow-up to his mega-Marvel hit. When asked in the past what he hoped to explore in the sequel, Ryan Coogler said: “Without getting into specifics, what I’ll say is something that I kind of, you know, what I struggled with at first is the difference between T’Challa in the comic books versus T’Challa in the MCU. And I always think that the differences lie in how old he was when he lost his father.”
