When asked if Marvel has a Black Panther sequel planned, Feige said, "Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that". He had this to say. But the next best thing to official confirmation from the studio is a quote from Marvel Studios captain Kevin Feige.

Presumably, Black Panther 2 will fill one of the recently announced Marvel release, and join the already announced Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as part of the Phase Four slate.

The first blockbuster with a black superhero in the leading role, "Black Panther" has become a symbol for promoting diversity in the movie industry. Moore took it one step further, noting that multiple sequels and spin-offs have been discussed.

Cordani will lead the combined company, with his Express Scripts counterpart, Tim Wentworth, staying on as a president. The companies said the combination will eventually save $600 million a year due to administrative efficiencies.

The film studio confirmed they are working on a follow-up in a feature with Entertainment Weekly. Homecoming's opening weekend hauled in $71 million in its first weekend and, judging by the advance ticket sales, Black Panther could potentially top it by the time Sunday rolls around. "I think about it like a wall crumbling".

After just three weeks, Marvel's Black Panther is already the 9th biggest domestic film of all-time. I think Shuri is awesome, and you will see so much more in our universe. "I will say just the notion of having what, frankly, most other companies with [intellectual property] have all along, which is access to all of their characters, that would be fun". We've kind of screwed up, and I want to change it.' There's that moment where all of the ancestors come behind T'Chaka. All in on stuff we believe in, before the audience tells us what they think. The character of T'Challa is anchored in the movie by an impressive supporting cast of great actors who bring even greater characters to life on-screen.
