Black Panther 2 Will 'Absolutely' Happen, Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige Says

Joaquin Phoenix

"Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that", Feige said when asked about the sequel.

While this isn't the first time that Feige has commented on the matter in such a way, it's always good to hear the Marvel Studios head committed to making sure that these films for every audience, not just one.

He [Nolan] predicted Black Panther will be among the Best Picture nominees in 2019, which would make it the first comic-book movie to break that ceiling with the Academy. "We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one".

Feige has the manner of someone who just placed a rather large bet and won; Black Panther had a larger budget than comparable Marvel films and Wakanda itself will be one of the major locations of the upcoming Infinity War.

Even the most casual of metal fans would recognize that this is the same font as the most famous of Pantera logos. Plenty of people think that this was a tactic used by Kevin Feige to keep their cards as close to their chest as possible, trying to keep the post-Avengers 4 world a secret. "Believe me, I'm exhausted of every movie, you know, "It's the end!" "Okoye, I think I'd watch three action films just Okoye". We did also get a rare non-technical nomination this year as Logan contested Best Adapted Screenplay, ultimately losing out to Call Me By Your Name.

No matter how exciting that sounds, there is a certain method to the Marvel madness. Anything beyond that-like, for example, how they'll deal with finally having rights over the X-Men and Fantastic Four if and when the Disney and Fox deal goes through-is a bridge they'll cross when they have to.

"I saw some of the cast from Black Panther, which made me really excited..." The film is now a pop culture force to be reckoned with, so it comes as no surprise that Marvel is preparing a sequel to double down on that magic!
