So it’s finally official! After all the speculation Marvel have announced that Creed director Ryan Coogler will helm Black Panther’s solo outing after the character’s debut in Captain America: Civil War.
“We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family,” said producer Kevin Feige. “The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.”
Black Panther currently has a script in progress from Joe Robert Cole and a planned 2018 release date.
