Ryan Coogler Directing Black Panther
It’s official, Marvelites: Ryan Coogler will step up to direct Marvel’s “Black Panther,” in theaters February 16, 2018!

Chadwick Boseman will star in “Black Panther” after debuting as the character in the upcoming Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6.

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

Coogler wrote and directed his first award-winning feature film, “Fruitvale Station,” in 2013. Most recently he directed the critically-acclaimed “Creed,” which earned Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Black Panther has been an important character in the Marvel universe for 50 years. He is the king of the technologically-advanced nation of Wakanda, and Panther has served as a member of the Avengers in addition to his many solo adventures.

Coogler is represented by WME and Cohen Gardner LLP.

Really enjoyed Creed, so I can't wait to see what he can do with the prince of Wakanda.

That's an excellent choice.

Sweet. Glad this is finally official.

My money's on Klaw as the bad guy in this one.

Lupita Nyong'o is in talks for a role in this movie

With a last name like Googler he'd better do his research! :tlol:

I'll see myself out.

Aaaaand that I realized it's Coogler. That's what I get for reading the forums without wearing my glasses.

Hell yes! So excited for this movie.

Now both versions of Human Torch are in the MCU.

Jordan is confirmed as Killmonger. Danai Gurira joins the cast.

Lupita revealed the gist of the Black Panther story after the SDCC panel:

"The story of this Black Panther - what I am allowed to say - is that Black Panther's leadership has been threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy."

So Killmonger and Klaue team up. And hopefully Emily van Camp has a role, don't see why else they'd bother involving the CIA.

Didn't think of that. Maybe.

More likely it's Martin Freeman as whoever the heck he was. Agent NotPhilCoulson. :tlol:

NinjaPug 07-25-2016 09:33 PM

I remember reading elsewhere that Martin Freeman was going to be in this.

ToTheNines 07-25-2016 09:40 PM

His character, Everett Ross, was with the fictional JCTC, not CIA. But perhaps Lupita misspoke.

TurtleTitan97 09-28-2016 09:16 PM

Winston Duke has been casted as classic Black Panther villain M'Baku/Man-Ape:

ToTheNines 09-28-2016 09:21 PM

Interesting. I wonder if he'll serve a purpose, or they just wanted to give Killmonger a cool goon.

Marvel released the cast list and synopsis for the movie. It was assumed but good to see Serkis is confirmed.


"Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
