Black Panther 2 : The sequel officially announced by Marvel

Black Panther 2 : The sequel officially announced by Marvel

First and foremost, Feige immediately stoked the Black Panther sequel flames by confirming that the studio will "absolutely" go ahead with a sequel.

The Black Panther peers at one of his victims. photo via Marvel Studios. "We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one", he answered. "Believe me, I'm exhausted of every movie, you know, "It's the end! They're not kidding. This is a heads-will-roll scenario". Black Panther is already breaking all sorts of box office records and is set to become Marvel's most successful movie, which is insane.

Black Panther, put simply, is unstoppable at the box office right now. I reminded him that it was because of The Dark Knight's exclusion that the Academy went to 10 (and now up to 10) nominees to get movies like that included, but to no avail so far.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige made it official when he was interviewed by "Entertainment Weekly". It's a remarkable triumph for Marvel Studios, not least because the movie was unusually diverse - both in terms of cast and crew. If you want to know more about Shuri, the Panther's sister...she has a whole story line in my book, too. Okoye, I think I'd watch three action films just Okoye.

Does this mean that we should expect to see even more of this when it comes to the future of the MCU?




Black cats have all different types of personalities, and anyone who adopts one is doing a great deed, so we applaud them.

With that said, one thing Marvel will continue to uphold is diversity. A big part of how Black Panther stands out, not only as a superhero movie but as a generally well-done film, is that some of the key characters are relatable and serve a bigger objective that extends the reach of their typical movie archetypes.

Also, amid fears of a Black-featured film playing well in the notoriously fickle movie audience in China, the Disney-Marvel Comic Universe film had grossed $9.87M, according to the China Box Office. So we'll just have to be patient.

OK, so that really didn't tell us anything beyond confirming that a Black Panther sequel is happening.

Do you think Black Panther will cross $1B mark next week?
