'Black Panther' sequel is happening, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige says

'Black Panther' sequel is happening, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige says

Black Panther is already the biggest movie of 2018, and now the latest superhero blockbuster from Marvel and Walt Disney is on the precipice of cracking $1 billion in worldwide box-office revenue.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige made it official during an interview with EW.

"Before, the average Korean's perception of black people was not very good, because we learned from our history books that they were slaves", one interviewee commented.

Feige went on, saying that there's already been plenty of talk about what'll happen in Black Panther 2, and that there's "a pretty solid direction on where we want to go" with it.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. It's entirely possible that it will end up out-performing supposedly heavier hitters like Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story when they premiere later this year.

But Black Panther ended with Wakanda accepting that the world needed their influence.

Over the last decade, China has become one of the most important film markets in the world: nearly as important as the United States is, and only becoming more crucial every year. So if you have yet to see the movie... do that first! Or a Shuri stand-alone film?

No word yet on a potential release date, Feige said. Take a look at the ad below and see if you notice what I'm talking about. "Okoye, I think I'd watch three action films just Okoye". I'm not saying we're doing that, but I'm saying that we're intrigued by them, he explained.

No matter how exciting that sounds, there is a certain method to the Marvel madness. That's more than both Thor: Ragnarok ($53 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($48 million), although it still falls short of Spider-Man: Homecoming ($71 million). "These are the ones that are keeping us busy".

With that said, one thing Marvel will continue to uphold is diversity. After hauling in some Oscars for his WWII film Dunkirk, Nolan suggested that Marvel's Black Panther should be up for an Oscar for Best Picture in 2019. As he told Entertainment Weekly, "We absolutely will do that".
