Late last year word broke that Ryan Coogler had once again entered into negotiations to direct the upcoming Black Panther film for Marvel Studios. Following that news, word regarding the matter has been quiet…until today. Marvel has now made it official and confirmed that Coogler will direct their upcoming Black Panther film hitting theaters on February 16, 2018. Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, had the following to say about the director coming on board.
After films such as Creed and Fruitvale Station, I’d say that if anyone is perfect for this job, it’s definitely Coogler. Are you glad to officially have Coogler in the director’s chair for the film? Let us know in the comments section below.
