After the success of Black Panther, fans looked eagerly to Marvel Studios' release schedule for 2019-2022 for signs that a sequel was in the works. In a word to IndieWire, director Ryan Coogler let us all know how the movie is shaping up so far.
"I got nothing... I don't know nothing... It is true, I'm telling you. I don't know," Coogler stated.
Cue the disappointment. Fans are hopeful, however, that after Avengers 4 comes out next year, the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be clearly explained and Coogler will have more information to work on.
On Coogler's busy film slate right now is the true-life drama Wrong Answer with Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan. He's also producing Creed II and Space Jam 2 with LeBron James.

Fans will have to wait just a little longer for a return to Wakanda in his own feature, but most likely we will see Black Panther's homeland again in Avengers 4, coming out next year.
