At last night’s Golden Globes celebration, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Letitia Wright caught up with Variety on the red carpet. In conversation with the publication’s correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister, Wright revealed an update on the third installment of the Black Panther franchise.

When asked if Black Panther 3 would be “greenlit,” Wright responded, “I think it’s already in the works.” She added, “You know, we just had a terrific two years of bringing it out and everybody coming together to support it. We need a little bit of a break, we need to regroup and [director] Ryan [Coogler] needs to get back into the lab, so it’s going to take a little while, but we’re really excited for you guys to see that.” Wagmeister pressed for more details, but Wright remained tight-lipped stating, “I always try to do positive words and positive thinking, and I believe that good words manifest, so I’m manifesting a Black Panther 3, why not?”

In the past, Kevin Feige and Ryan Coogler have discussed the potential of a third sequel. Feige once told Variety, “I go back to what I said when we decided to make Wakanda Forever after losing Chad. This mythology and this ensemble and these characters deserve to continue and will continue after all of us are gone, I hope, and will continue forever in movies the way it has in comics for 50-plus years.” There is no word on a timeline so far.
