Calling all Black Panther fans — we’re here to serve you your Friday dose of good news. Not that we really had any doubt, but Black Panther 2 is certainly, undoubtedly, definitely, absolutely, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT HAPPENING. And apparently, Marvel has been working on the Black Panther sequel for YEARS. Yes, talk about Wakanda Forever.
In the mid-1990s, Wesley Snipes — the legend behind Blade — expressed his intention to make a Black Panther film. But it wasn’t until 2005 that Marvel latched to the idea and announced that they would bring the character to the big screen. In the years between the first Black Panther movie being developed and released, the studio started toying with the concept of a sequel, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige revealed.
He couldn’t spill the tea about it yet, but Feige says that Black Panther 2 is an absolute certainty.
Not that this is a surprise to anyone, of course. Marvel is known to give its main heroes up to three standalone movies (plus, a few appearances in other MCU films), after all. Still, it’s exciting to hear the words directly from Feige himself.
He also said that Marvel is open to creating spin-off movies for other Black Panther characters like Shuri and Okoye.
Although, he’s careful about giving the audience too much or too little.
We also want to put it out there that we wouldn’t mind watching three films revolving around Nakia, M’Baku, and N’Jobu. And if it’s not pushing it, maybe a movie about N’Jadaka or Killmonger, too? Just saying…
In the meantime, we’ll anxiously await more details about Black Panther 2.
