“Black Panther 2” Dated, Harington Is Black Knight

Black Panther 2 Dated Harington Is Black Knight

Walt Disney Studios followed the “Star Wars” part of its panel this morning with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige coming out to make some more big announcements.

First up, director Ryan Coogler came on stage to announce that “Black Panther II” (not the official title) has set an official May 6th 2022 release date with Coogler confirming his return to direct. No further details are available. Coogler says: “We’re not taking our time, we’re really trying to get it right.”

The cast of “The Eternals” came on stage with a sketch showing off their costumes (see below) and three more additions to the line-up – “Dunkirk” actor Barry Keoghan as Druig, “Crazy Rich Asians” actress Gemma Chan as Sersi, and former “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington as Dane Whitman/Black Knight.

The “Black Widow” cast wasn’t on hand as they’re currently in the midst of additional filming, but the Comic-Con trailer was played again for the crowd though a few additions were made to the clip including David Harbour fully suited up in a comics accurate Red Guardian helmet and costume, and a bonus scene at a gas station where Yelena makes fun of Black Widow’s fighting pose.
