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

11 March 2018

Black Panther saw many memorable characters, who at times stole the show from the lead himself.

This huge push for Black Panther happened before the ticket sales were known, and now Marvel looks even smarter as these characters and locations become more important in the Cinematic Universe. The first installment has officially been in theaters for a month and is days away from crossing the billion-dollar milestone at the worldwide box office, which is pretty wonderful considering that the movie was only tracking for a $120 million opening weekend. The worldwide tally will be helped out in a big way by the film's last major global opening date in China today where early estimates point to a $22.7 million frame.

OK, so that really didn't tell us anything beyond confirming that a Black Panther sequel is happening. Feige has also indicated that the studio is hopeful that director Ryan Coogler will return for a sequel, although it's unknown whether talks between the two have yet begun.

When asked if Marvel has a Black Panther sequel planned, Feige said, "Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that".

Bears to transition tag Kyle Fuller
It's also a little cheaper than the franchise tag, which would've paid Fuller around $14.9 million this year. He started 30 games in his first two seasons out of Virginia Tech and had six interceptions and 129 tackles.

In January, the month before the movie was released, Black Panther merchandise was in 87 percent of stores in retail tracking service NPD's point-of-sale panel, according to NPD's Julie Lennett. For the full weekend, the film is expected to come in second behind Black Panther.

I think there's lots of potential. "But I would watch a movie about [the Dora Milaje or Shuri]". I think Shuri is wonderful, and you will see so much more in our universe.

She says the movie has made "a massive splash" because such a representation of powerful women is rarely seen. That is certainly good news and we can't wait to know in what movies we can find Shuri, except for Infinity War!
