Ryan Coogler has made a five-year TV deal recently with Disney+ for a new spin-off series of Wakanda. So, it is now official that Black Panter’s director Ryan Coogler is working on the 12th series of Marvel Studios.
Coogler had built a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life and won countless awards with Black Panther. He has gathered everyone’s admiration “by creating a watershed cultural moment in a real meaningful and memorable way” back then. And now, we are all thrilled to hear that we have the chance to see his works as a long-lasting period on screens.
He will be telling more stories about the Wakanda nation which has also impressed all of us and made us wonder what is yet to come in Black Panther.
Ryan Coogler said on the announcement of the deal new Wakanda series that:
“It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden, and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella.
We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+.”
However, the other projects are also on the table
In the continuation, he also added that they are already in the mix on some other projects that they can’t wait to share. So as we know, WandaVision was the first of those shows to launch on the streamer. It premiered last month, while The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki are set to debut later this year. But we don’t know much more about plot details and the central characters for the series yet.
We just know Coogler is also re-writing the script of Black Panther 2 after the tragic death of its lead star Chadwick Boseman last year. Marvel Studios’ chief creative Kevin Feige had also confirmed that the sequel will not be recasting the actor.
So while we are waiting, keep that in mind Black Panther is available to stream on Disney+ to longer.
