It looks like T’Challa’s demise in Infinity War will be short-lived. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Ryan Coogler will return to write and direct a sequel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s breakout hit Black Panther. The deal was made quietly but is said to be done.

The first film earned $700 million domestically and $1.3 billion worldwide, and was also recently submitted for Oscar consideration. It was considered a huge movie for the black community when it was released. Before and after the film’s release, Coogler was asked about when the sequel would happen, but his team took their time in making a deal. He will now write the script next year with production set to begin in either late 2019 or early 2020. Disney has yet to make an official announcement on any future Marvel movies outside of Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
