Today brings the announcement that Ryan Coogler, director and co-writer with Joe Robert Cole of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, will be returning to helm the sequel.
While it was highly anticipated by both studio and fan alike, no news had come of whether Mr. Coogler would have involvement of any kind in the hit film’s sequel. In THR‘s article here, it sounds as if the sequel will be coming within the next two years. As a result, fan anticipation is likely to be at an equal level if not higher than for the first film.
We will provide updates on the sequel’s status as new information becomes available to the public.
