It’s finally official. Ryan Coogler is set to direct the Black Panther movie. After nailing Creed, Marvel would be stupid not to go with this guy. Here is what Kevin Feige had to say about Coogler:
We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family, The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.
