Black Panther 2 is coming and here's everything we know so far about it!
The Black Panther film is among the highest-grossing MCU films to-date and it's an absolute guarantee that we will be getting a sequel. It was even revealed by the big bossman himself, Kevin Feige that a sequel is happening and it will be directed by Ryan Coogler. Here's everything we know so far about Black Panther 2.
Black Panther is coming, but not very soon. It was revealed at the D23 Expo that we will have to wait till May 6, 2022, to see T'Challa in another solo outing. That's more than 2 years away.
This release date means that the film may not be a part of phase 4 but phase 5.
Ryan Coogler has quite some time to write the script for Black Panther 2 so he's probably not in any hurry to do so. And, as we can expect, official plot details are a long way away. However, rumor has it that a new big baddie will come forward to try to take the throne from T'Challa and rule Wakanda. That baddie could either be Namor or Princess Zanda. The best guess here is Namor since he was somewhat alluded to in Avengers: Endgame when Okoye mentioned underwater earthquakes.
What we know for sure about the plot is that it will be focused mainly on T'Challa growing into his role as king of Wakanda. Coogler, the writer and director, told Screenrant: "I'd be really interested to see, you know, what kind of king he is with experience and how that affects his performance in the stories."
We can definitely expect Chadwick Boseman to make a return as king of Wakanda, T'Challa. We can also expect Letitia Wright to return as Shuri, Winston Duke as M'Baku, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi and Angela Bassett as Ramonda, T'Challa's mother. There's a rumor that Erik 'Killmonger' Stevens may make a return in a real role and not a flashback. It doesn't seem very likely. Marvel boss Kevin Feige isn't ruling out the chances though saying: "nothing is set yet in any way that far".
