Black Panther’s overwhelming success will be carrying it well into its cinematic follow-up. While movie-going audiences are still feeling the heat of the first installment, Marvel Studios has been gearing up for a sequel to its latest entry. President Kevin Feige recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the future of Black Panther as a cinematic franchise, as well as the Wakanda’s involvement in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
“Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that,” Feige said. “One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one,” he continued.
With Black Panther heading into $900 million in global earnings and making its way toward a cool $1 billion internationally, it’s without question that Marvel Studios would take advantage of a comicbook movie powerhouse.
Feige also spoke with EW about King T’Challa’s homeland and its prominence in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
