Ryan Coogler returns to direct the sequel to his smash-hit superhero blockbuster, Black Panther. The titular character is based on the Marvel character created by comic book legends Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Following the death of Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed T'Challa a.k.a. Black Panther in the character’s first solo film, Marvel announced that they would not be recasting the role of T'Challa.
