Coogler joined Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige onstage and spilled some details about the highly-anticipated sequel to his blockbuster film, Black Panther. While he didn’t reveal too much, he did confirm the flick will hit theaters on May 6, 2022.

He also confirmed that Black Panther 2 is just a working title, meaning it will likely have a totally different name by the time it hits the big screen. Ryan Coogler will direct the sequel and confirmed he is already hard at work on the treatment.
