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.

'Creed 2' Targets a November 2017 Release Date

A sequel to Michael B. Jordan‘s hit movie Creed could be coming in November 2017!

“That’s my goal,” MGM CEO Gary Barber told Variety about the plans for a sequel.

The news comes the day after the movie’s star Sylvester Stallone took home a Golden Globe award for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his work as Rocky Balboa in the movie.

“[Director] Ryan [Coogler] has some ideas of going forward and backward and actually seeing Rocky and Apollo together,” Sly said. “Think of The Godfather 2. That’s what he was thinking of, which was kind of ambitious.”

Getting Ryan to direct the sequel in this time frame might be tricky as he is in talks to direct the upcoming Marvel movie Black Panther.
