At the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Marvel announced that Black Panther 2 will open in theaters on May 6, 2022. Marvel boss Kevin Feige was joined on stage by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, who made the announcement.
According to Feige, “Ryan’s hard at work on another black panther film, he has delivered us a treatment that I happen to have right here.” Feige jokingly asked Coogler if they should reveal the name of the film, but decided that it’s too early for that.

“We’re really hard at work on it, trying to give you guys something special. We’re definitely taking our time with this… We really really want it to be right,” Coogler said before walking off the stage.
Black Panther grossed $700 million in the U.S., becoming the highest-grossing Marvel movie of all time—domestically—until being unseated by Avengers: Endgame. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and took home three, for Best Original Music Score, Costume Design, and Production Design.
