Coogler wrote and directed 2018’s “Black Panther,” a box-office hit that turned Chadwick Boseman right into a celebrity. The actor died in August of most cancers.
Coogler “introduced a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life in an actual, significant and memorable method, making a watershed cultural second,” Disney Govt Chairman Bob Iger mentioned in a press release. The corporate seems to be ahead “to telling extra nice tales with Ryan and his group.”
A time-frame for the sequence wasn’t instantly introduced.
The Black Panther character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics, which turned a part of Disney in 2009 when the media large acquired Marvel Leisure.
