It's time to rejoice, Black Panther fans, because writer and director Ryan Coogler is returning for a second outing for one of Marvel's most successful standalone superheroes to date. The Hollywood Reporter says the accomplished director has agreed to return to direct and write the sequel.

The first of two films directed by Coogler raked in a whopping $700 million domestically, $1.3 billion in total, and is nearly assured of a place in the yearly "Oscar conversation". And one imagines that he'll have big plans in store for T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Wakanda's other beloved citizens - from Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) to M'Baku (Winston Duke) and Ramonda (Angela Bassett).

Sources tell Variety that production is expected to start at the end of 2019 or early 2020, depending on when the script is ready. Marvel now has three films lined-up in the coming year, which are Captain Marvel, Spider-Man Homecoming 2 and Avengers 4.

While chatting with AP, Michael B. Jordan complimented Coogler's directing style.

Coogler's return as writer/director for Black Panther 2 should come as no surprise, as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige expressed his desire for Coogler to direct a sequel prior even to the theatrical release of Black Panther.

Coogler is the fifth director in Marvel history to helm the first sequel to a hero's maiden MCU adventure, a club that so far includes Jon Favreau, James Gunn, Jon Watts, and Joss Whedon. Pitted against his own family, the king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and embrace his future as an Avenger.
