Ryan Coogler to Direct Marvel's 'Black Panther'

It’s official: Ryan Coogler will direct Marvel’s upcoming action film Black Panther!

“We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family,” producer Kevin Feige said. “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.”

Ryan directed the hit films Creed and Fruitvale Station.

Chadwick Boseman will star in the movie, set to hit theaters on February 16, 2018.
