Entertainment Weekly in an interview with Kevin Feige, questioned the Black Panther director about the future adventures of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o). Kevin outrightly admitted he had nothing “specific to reveal” at the time, but he did say “we absolutely will do that.” He described the studio’s process of looking beyond the current film at other storytelling opportunities, and 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.”
“a film that doesn’t have a part two behind it or wasn’t a sequel.” He admits “a lot of studios would love to have four franchises that they can keep doing sequels to,” but says Marvel is trying to avoid getting stuck in a rut. “We specifically didn’t want to do that,” Feige says, “because we wanted to keep bringing new characters to the forefront, because there’s an embarrassment of riches in the comic books.”
This is the most awesomest news I’ve got in ages and I just cannot wait!!!
