A Black Panther sequel is confirmed.
Following the huge success of Black Panther it should be no surprise that Marvel Studios is planning a sequel as the movie will gross over a billion dollars, which marks the fifth Marvel film to do so.
"We absolutely will do that," Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed to EW.com about Black Panther 2.
Kevin Feige didn't have any thing to say about the sequel as of yet, but did mention they have discussed a Black Panther 2.
"One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two," Feige said. "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."
Fans won't have to wait long to see more from Black Panther and Wakanda as they both return for May's The Avengers: Infinity War.
"Anchor point is a good way of [describing] it, particularly as some of our other anchor points, Asgard for instance, are gone," Feige said regarding the role Wakanda plays going forward.
Without getting into too many spoilers, The Avengers: Infinity War trailer did reveal a major battle takes place within Wakanda, and also that Black Panther gives Captain America his new vibranium shield.
Black Panther currently sits at over $930 million worldwide at the box office.
