After the tragic passing of lead actor Chadwick Boseman, Disney has also explained what direction the film will take now that the role of T'Challa is gone.
Feige didn't provide further details about how the Black Panther sequel will proceed without Boseman, but he said the studio would "honor the legacy" that the actor helped build by continuing to explore "all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film". Among those productions were "Marshall", "21 Bridges" and, of course, the Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters "Black Panther", "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame".
Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, the sequel to the first Black Panther movie will be out on July 8, 2022. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king - and Black Panther - is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. While Kevin Feige had earlier teased about a Fantastic Four feature film during Comic-Con a year ago, it's been confirmed that Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts will be helming the film based on Marvel's first family.
'Black Panther, ' which was the late star's standalone film however received Oscar nominations including the best motion picture of the year.
