Cape Breton Post - - Arts / Entertainment -

NEW YORK - Ryan Coogler isn’t leav­ing Wakanda: The film­maker will write and di­rect the se­quel to “Black Pan­ther.”

A per­son close to the pro­duc­tion who re­quested anonymity be­cause they weren’t au­tho­rized to an­nounce the deal con­firmed Coogler’s re­turn to the Mar­vel fran­chise on Thurs­day. The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter first re­ported Coogler’s widely ex­pected in­volve­ment in the “Black Pan­ther” se­quel. Nei­ther a start date nor a re­lease date has yet been an­nounced.

“Black Pan­ther” ear­lier this year grossed more than $1.3 bil­lion world­wide, in­clud­ing $700 mil­lion do­mes­ti­cally - a new record for a Mar­vel re­lease. (AP)
