Director Ryan Coogler talks ‘Black Panther’ saying it’s ‘personal and intimate’

Marvel Studios has tapped Ryan Coogler to follow-up Creed with Black Panther. Coogler talked with Heyuguys about the film and his comic book background.
“I’m excited. I grew very into pop culture, very into comic books, so it’s something that is just as personal to me as the last couple of films I was able to make. I feel really fortunate to be able to work on something I’m this passionate about again.”

He then confirmed that he’s already begun work on Black Panther, so perhaps we’ll start hearing more details about the movie in the coming months!.

42 and Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman will be introduced as the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War. Boseman’s T’Challa, prince of Wakanda, must rise to take the mantle of the Black Panther after his father, the king, is treacherously killed.

“It’s a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda, and what it means to be a king,” Feige explained.

Executive producer Nate Moore has teased a younger, “more fiery” version of the character in Civil War, as compared to the comics, but we’ll have to wait and see if and how he’ll have evolved by the time we get to Black Panther.

“T’Challa’s story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward,” Feige teased.

Black Panther will be the last MCU movie released before Avengers: Infinity War

The standalone film won’t arrive in theaters until February 16, 2018.
