Ryan Coogler stood out as the writer and director of "Black Panther ", which turned the superhero Marvel into the 2018 film event in February, with critical acclaim, discussion of awards this fall and $ 1.3 billion in ticket sales worldwide.

It is not surprising that Coogler returns in the same roles for "Black Panther 2", a person familiar with the project of the film, but who is not authorized to speak publicly about it, confirms USA TODAY.

The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news of the signing, says the plan is for Coogler to write the script next year with a view to starting production in late 2019 or early 2020.

The director of "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station", Coogler, is a property of Hollywood, developing the drama "Wrong Answer" with the star "Black Panther" and the frequent collaborator Michael B. Jordan. Coogler is also executive producer of the sequel "Space Jam" by LeBron James and "Creed 2".

There are not many firm details about the secret sequel to the "Black Panther" project, not even an official title, which will be announced to a large extent at an event for Disney fans in the future. Marvel and the parent company Disney have not set a release date.

While the cast of the sequel has not been announced, certainly look for Chadwick Boseman to repeat his role as Black Panther / T & # 39; Challa, the king of the African nation Wakanda.

Although the black panther was annihilated by Thanos, along with half of the population of Marvel superheroes, with a snap of the finger at the end of "Avengers: Infinity War", T & # 39; Challa will return. You can count on that.

Boseman told EE. UU TODAY in February: "There is a hero here that I hope that people grow to love, not only because of their physical strength, but because of their heart, that's what makes a great leader."

Expect Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Winston Duke (M'Baku) and Daniel Kaluuya (W'Kabi) to return.

There have even been reports that Jordan could return in some way as the dead villain (spoiler), Erik Killmonger.

As for the story, that is the great mystery. Certainly, wait for the story to move beyond the long secret of Wakanda. As the post-credits scene in "Black Panther" showed, T'Challa announced at the United Nations in Vienna that Wakanda will share his knowledge and resources with the rest of the world.

"Wakanda will no longer look from the shadows. We can not. We should not, "he said," we must find a way to take care of each other, as if we were one tribe. "And when a representative from another country condescendingly questioned what place Wakanda could offer to the rest of the world, T & # 39; Challa gave him a knowing smile.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige gave some clues about the story process during an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March.

"One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting in a Part One talking and dreaming about what we would do in Part Two, there have been a lot of those conversations when we were putting together the first Black Panther." He said. "We have ideas and a fairly solid direction where we want to go with the second."
