Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are speculating that an untitled Marvel film set for release in 2021 will be the sequel to the Black Panther film.
This speculation has surfaced after the recent announcement of the upcoming films that Disney will release within the next few years.
Return To Wakanda
On Tuesday, July 10, Disney announced the scheduling changes in their movie release date calendar, spanning over the next few years. Disney revealed that it has pushed back the date for the release of Indiana Jones 5 and moved up an untitled Marvel film from July 2021 to February 2021. Another live-action Disney film will be taking the slot for July 2021.
Fans took to Twitter to speculate that the untitled Marvel that was rescheduled is Black Panther 2. They believe that the film is indeed is the mysterious unnamed Marvel film since the first film was released in February 2017.
It's obvious it's Black Panther 2. Keeping that February slot for the trilogy, I guess. — William (@realrealrashawn) July 10, 2018
However, in April this year, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, stated that Marvel wasn't announcing any post-Avengers 4 movies until after this film will have been released. Feige did say, however, that if there would be a sequel to Black Panther, he would want director Ryan Coogler to return.
Black Panther And The Avengers
Fans of the Marvel film will have to wait until after the next untitled Avengers film to find out if there will be a sequel to the Black Panther movie. The titular character from the film was last seen fighting alongside the Avengers against Thanos's minions in Avengers: Infinity War.
However, at the end of the film, Black Panther or T'Challa was turned to dust, along with several other members of the Avengers team, after Thanos had succeeded in his goal to acquire all the Infinity Stones and wipe of half the galaxy's population.
In the first Black Panther film, T'Challa returned to his home, Wakanda, to take over as king, following the death of his father that occurred in the film, Captain America: Civil War. However, T'Challa was faced with a challenge as a secret from the past is revealed, threatening to demolish Wakanda's isolation policies and start a global revolution.
The film starred Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassett, Micheal B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, and Letitia Wright. The critically acclaimed film broke numerous box-office records and grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide.
