Ryan Coogler to Direct ‘Black Panther’

According to an interview with Kevin Feige (the overseer of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe) in the next issue of Empire, Creed director Ryan Coogler is now set to direct Black Panther! To anyone who knows Coogler’s work, this is great news. At the age of 29, he’s an enormous talent in the director’s chair.


Feige goes on to describe the film as “a big geo-political action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda, and what it means to be a king.” Black Panther will unsurprisingly be a crucial link the chain leading to the Infinity War movies. I wonder — will they work another Infinity Stone into the plot? Will the large deposits of vibranium in Wakanda have a crucial role to play?

Black Panther will star Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, who will appear in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Based on what we’ve seen of him from the trailer, the look and physicality of the character appears to be spot on.

Black Panther will arrive in cinemas on July 6, 2018. Captain America wages Civil War on May 6, 2016. Mark your calendars!
