Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed that they are already thinking about Black Panther 2.
The original Black Panther movie, which stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and his titular alter-ego, has already become a huge hit among fans and critics.
When asked what he could reveal about Black Panther 2, the 44-year-old studio president told Entertainment Weekly, “Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that. One of the favourite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two.”
“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.”
Black Panther will next been seen on screen in the Marvel ensemble movie Avengers: Infinity War which will see him star alongside the likes of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
Feige also revealed that Black Panther’s home world of Wakanda will act as an “anchor point” to link the Avengers franchise with the Black Panther series.
Avengers: Infinity War – which will also feature the stars from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana – is set to be released on April 27.
