Ratifying Marvel fans' hopes for more of the Wakandan setting and storyline that director Ryan Coogler broke open with this year's Black Panther, Coogler reportedly has now agreed to write and direct a sequel to the box office-smashing film. The Hollywood Reporter says the accomplished director has agreed to return to direct and write the sequel. Coogler is set to begin writing the script in early 2019, though whether Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole will also return to write alongside Coogler remains unknown at this time.

Black Panther has entered modern culture as the first black superhero movies (sorry Blade!), and went on to make $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office. In the acclaimed film, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to the hidden high-tech African nation of Wakanda to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king, following the death of his father. Sources had also told Variety that Coogler was possibly planning to shoot a smaller film before getting into the sequel - one possibility is his version of "12 Angry Men".

However, when it comes to potential Oscar glory, Disney have chose to back just one of these horses, and have put Black Panther forward for Best Picture consideration.

Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered. Rick Porcello is set to pitch for Boston while CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees.

The Coogler-helmed "Black Panther" is Marvel's highest domestic grossing film ever, earning just over $700 million in the USA and $1.3 billion worldwide.

They've chose to only put one of the movies forward for the Best Picture award.

With T'Challa having fallen victim to Thanos' deadly finger-snap, Black Panther 2 remains in a curious position with no one now holding the mantle of Black Panther, though the events of Avengers 4 will likely have a large impact on the plot direction of the film.
