Black Panther as you know has made north of a straight Billie (1 billion US Dollars) at the box office, not to mention opening Friday in China, the world’s second largest movie market, earning an estimated $22.7 million., we were overly assured in the stuff we said in our #TAPReviews. Now Marvel obviously sees this success and has come out to officially confirm that we can look forward to a sequel.
Yep, Black Panther 2 is confirmed. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says the sequel is not only “absolutely” happening, but that the project already has a strong direction:
There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first ‘Black Panther.’ We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one
Feige also stated that any sequel would flow naturally from the first, which is promising, as Marvel now and again crowbars certain elements to fit in with the current trajectory of other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
No exact name for the Black Panther sequel, or any plot points as yet, but we will keep you informed as information arises.
