It’s official. Creed director Ryan Coogler has been tapped to direct the forthcoming Black Panther film.
Reports the Associated Press:
Chadwick Boseman has already been cast as the lead character, who will make his first appearance in May’s “Captain America: Civil War.” The “Black Panther” film, set for a release in February 2018, marks the first time a major Marvel Studios film will focus primarily on a black superhero.
There was much speculation surrounding who would take on the directing job. Ava DuVernay earlier this year passed on the film. Coogler was another favorite choice among fans.
Fans will get a first look of Black Panther on the big screen in the forthcoming Captain America: Civil War film.
Let’s not forget it was Coogler’s film that earn Sylvester Stallone his first Golden Globe, despite the actor forgetting to thank the young director first.
