Black Panther premiered in theaters less than one month ago and its already made over $1 billion in box offices across the country and the world.
The blockbuster movie has been a massive success from day one. In its opening weekend, which was President's Day weekend, Black Panther grossed over $400 million in the United States alone. Fans flocked to theaters across the nation dressed in their best African-inspired traditional outfits to watch a movie that the world has been waiting on for many years.
Starring Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther AKA T'Challa, as well as Lupita N'yongo, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Sterling Brown and more; the film just keeps reaching milestone after milestone.
Now after speaking about the possibility of a sequel for the project last month, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has finally confirmed that one is being planned, as we speak. "Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that," the prez told Entertainment Weekly.
He continued: "One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a part one and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a part two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one."
