ryan coogler is going back to wakanda

October 12, 2018

It’s happening.

Ryan Coogler is taking us back to Wakanda y’all…

Coogler recently inked a deal to write and direct the second installment of Black Panther. The billion-dollar cultural phenomenon was released in February of this year, but even before its overwhelming success, talks of a sequel were already in motion.

That said, hype over Black Panther may hit another level as Hollywood heads into red carpet season, as the critically acclaimed Marvel movie has generated considerable Oscar buzz.

Coogler is set to write the script in 2019 with production starting in late 2019 or early 2020 according to the Hollywood Reporter. Marvel have made no announcements about the sequel but the fan theories and suggestions have already flooded social media.

It’s breathtaking to even imagine where Coogler will take Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa and the people of Wakanda (whom we’ve all decided to name our children after) but we do know that we will be there, front and center, waiting for Okoye to welcome us home.
