Ryan Coogler Confirmed For “Black Panther”

It’s official, “Creed” and “Fruitvale Station” helmer Ryan Coogler will direct the “Black Panther” film at Marvel Studios.

Coogler has been linked for a few weeks, but the studio set it in stone today with Marvel president Kevin Feige releasing the following statement:

“We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family, The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.”

Chadwick Boseman takes on the role of T’Challa in the film which is scheduled for a February 16th 2018 release.
