Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is working on several shows for Marvel Studios under his new deal with Disney.
On Monday, it was announced that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will expand the Kingdom of Wakanda with a Disney Plus series. This all comes as Coogler signed a five-year deal with Disney TV under his Proximity Media banner. The Marvel press release also teases the Wakanda series will not be the only thing Coogler will develop for Disney Plus.
Ryan Coogler is not only working on the Wakanda series, but he will also return to helm Black Panther 2 without Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa. In addition to those two projects, Coogler also mentioned that he’s working on other Marvel Studios shows for Disney Plus that will be revealed in the future:
“We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.”

Here is the synopsis for Black Panther:
After the death of his father, the king of Wakanda, young T’Challa returns home to the isolated high-tech African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, he must release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
