Even before Marvel started talking officially about the MCU’s Phase Four, boss Kevin Feige said a Black Panther sequel is going to happen.
Nothing specific did he revealed but mentioning that they are going to do it.
There’s no doubt that the first film broke records for the superhero genre. It landed a historic Golden Globes nomination (although it didn’t win) and made Oscar history at the 2019 Academy Awards. Expectations for its sequel is already high.
They’re taking their time to form sure it is a worthy sequel, too, because it was confirmed at D23 Expo that the sequel is going to be out on May 6, 2022. That potentially makes it a part of Phase 5, or one among the ultimate movies of Phase 4.
Fans may need noticed Black Panther 2 remains within the May 2022 date it received back at the 2019 D23 Expo. This makes it one among the rare Hollywood projects over the subsequent few years to be unaffected by the pandemic.
Simply put, Black Panther 2 was fortunate. As the film was already scheduled for May 2022, meaning Marvel wouldn’t look to start principal photography until some point in 2021. The continued health crisis has caused numerous in-production projects to pack up indefinitely. So it primarily affects films hoping to premiere next year (like The Batman and therefore the Matrix 4). Hopefully, normal business operations are up and running in 2021. That’s why Black Panther 2 can stay track as if nothing ever happened.
Does everyone realize the Black Panther villain?
After making $1.3 billion in theaters, expectations are high for the sequel to Black Panther. The insider claims that Coogler is introducing Namor as a villain because of the film’s main antagonist. Namor is going to be joined by a couple of henchmen, including Ulysses Klaue, who was within the first movie.
The source says that the plot will involve the town of Atlantis. After the Wakandans unknowingly pollute the fabled city, Namor rises to guard its citizens. If this is often true, then the project’s subtitle may be Lost Kingdom, something that was leaked a couple of months ago.
No word yet on whom Marvel might tap to play Namor.
