Marvel Confirms 'Black Panther 2' Release Date
The studio made the announcement at the D23 Expo.
The highly-anticipated Black Panther sequel now has a release date. Marvel and director Ryan Coogler announced today at the D23 Expo that Black Panther II will hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
Rumors of a release date for a Black Panther sequel began in 2018, following the original movie’s critical and commercial success. Coogler will return to direct the follow up film, but has yet to reveal plot or character details.
Marvel previosuly revealed a bevy of other sequels to its major films earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, where it outlined plans for Phase 4. Sequels to other franchises include Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, both of which have 2021 release dates.
Other big announcements to come of this year’s D23 include the news of a SHE-HULK and Ms. Marvel series for Disney+.
Stay tuned for more announcements from D23 and on Black Panther II.
