“Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler announced the release date of the much-anticipated follow-up film on Saturday, reports Variety.
“Black Panther 2” is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6, 2022. “We’re not taking our time, we’re really trying to get it right,” Coogler said of the production schedule. Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige said Coogler has delivered a treatment, complete with a villain and new title, though neither would give up those details.
The date will place “Black Panther 2” as the furthest out announced Marvel film, between “Thor: Love and Thunder” (Nov. 5, 2021) and an unannounced film slated for July 29, 2022 — although whether Marvel will keep that date, just two months after “Black Panther 2,” is up in the air.
