Marvel Officially Confirms Creed Director Ryan Coogler For Black Panther

Marvel has officially confirmed that Ryan Coogler, director of the critically acclaimed Rocky spin-off Creed, will be calling the shots on the Marvel Phase Three movie Black Panther, due for release in February 2018.


“We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family,” says Marvel movie boss Kevin Feige. “The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct Black Panther. Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.”

Coogler made his feature film debut with the acclaimed Fruitvale Station (2014) which also starred Creed’s Michael B Jordan.

Chadwick Boseman will play Black Panther/T’Challa having made his debut in this year’s Captain America: Civil War. Black Panther has a script by Joe Robert Cole. Little else is known about the project though internet pundits are speculating that Andy Serkis will appear as the villain Klaw, after a link was made between his black-market arms dealer character (Ulysses Klaue) in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Wakanda, the fictional African country that T’Challa rules.
