Marvel Studios revealed at D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, that Black Panther 2 will release on May 6, 2022.
Released in February 2018, Black Panther is one of the highest-grossing films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a current domestic gross of over $700 million and a total, worldwide take of $1.3 billion. That kind of success earned the film a sequel pretty early on and most of the cast from Black Panther is expected to return. Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye, has already confirmed her return and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige himself confirmed back in June that Ryan Coogler was at work on the sequel.
The Black Panther sequel was officially announced at SDCC in July and is currently in development. Ryan Coogler is returning as writer and director with Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira and Martin Freeman reprising their roles. The film releases May 6, 2022.
