Ryan Coogler has broken his silence on returning to write and direct the sequel to Marvel Studios’ Black Panther film.
Coogler has a huge task ahead of him directing the highly-anticipated Black Panther sequel. The first film was an enormous success managing a $1.3 billion take at the in global box office to become the ninth highest-grossing film of all time worldwide.
The filmmaker stated at the IndieWire Honors 2018 that he knows returning to helm Black Panther 2 will be a difficult task, coming with many pressures:
“I think the pressure is kind of always going to be there. I’ve had a chance to make three feature films, each one of them had its own very specific type of pressure. In the process of it, it feels insurmountable each time.”
Coogler went on to detail his approach to the sequel, explaining the need to quiet the outside world in order to focus on the story itself:
“When it comes to making a sequel, I’ve never done it before, a sequel to something that I’ve directed myself. So I think there’s gonna be a lot of pressure there, but what we’re going to try to do is just focus on the work, like we always do. Really try to go step by step and try to quiet everything else around us, really focus on trying to make something that has some type of meaning.”
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, and Winston Duke. Here’s the official synopsis:
After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.
Black Panther is available on Digital HD, 4K UHD, Blu-Ray and DVD.
