Black Panther hit $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide this weekend. Not surprisingly, Marvel Studio’s president Kevin Feige announced there will be a sequel. Because money.
In more news that I'm a day late on, @marvelstudios President Kevin Feige confirmed plans for the as-yet-untitled '@blackpanther 2' in an interview with @entertainmentweekly yesterday saying: "We absolutely will do that." Mr. Feige added, "One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a part one and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a part two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first 'Black Panther.' We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one." No surprises there, as @forbes reported today that @blackpanther has officially hit $1 Billion at the worldwide box office. Congratulations to director Ryan Coogler, @chadwickboseman, @michaelbjordan, @marvel, et al for the huge success. Bring on the sequel! 🐾 #courtshake #blackpanther2 #blackpanther #wakanda #wakandaforever #tchalla #vibranium #marvelstudios #chadwickboseman #killmonger #danaigurira #michaelbjordan #ryancoogler #letitiawright #lupitanyongo #kevinfeige #blackpanthermovie #kendricklamar #marvelcomics #mcu #marvelcinematicuniverse #avengersinfinitywar #avengers #infinitywar #haramufal #theavengers #forbes #entertainmentweekly #kingtchalla
