Marvel Studio confirms release of Black Panther II

Black Panther 2 now has a confirmed release date. While Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame each broke many box office records, one of Marvel Studios’ biggest success in recent years was Black Panther. It is the highest-grossing solo superhero movie ever made with over $1.3 billion worldwide. Directed by Ryan Coogler, it became the first superhero movie nominated for Best Picture and became Marvel Studios’ first Oscar-winning film.

The movie fully introduced Wakanda to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and saw T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) rise to become its king after the events of Captain America: Civil War. He and some other fan-favorite Wakandan characters returned in the last two Avengers films, but many are ready to see them become the centerpieces again in the sequel. Black Panther 2 was confirmed to be in development by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic-Con, but he didn’t elaborate on what the timeframe was or what the story could be.
