Black Panther 2 Director Discusses The Pressures Of His First Sequel

Making a movie is hard. Let’s go ahead and get that part out of the way. We write about movies and read about them on a near-daily basis, and as such, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that there are thousands and thousands of factors to making these movies and that every little decision along the way to making the film a reality can result in a film being an altogether bad experience.

So when you managed the terribly difficult task of getting it right in the first place, there is an added pressure to get its sequel right as well — and get it much better than you did the first time around. This is the kind of pressure filmmakers have to deal with everyday, and it’s the very pressure Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is facing with Black Panther 2. Here’s what he had to say to IndieWire about it:

“I think the pressure is kind of always going to be there. I’ve had a chance to make three feature films, each one of them had its own very specific type of pressure. In the process of it, it feels insurmountable each time.”

Though as difficult as it is to make a movie no matter what, he knows there is an added pressure here with this new film:

“When it comes to making a sequel, I’ve never done it before, a sequel to something that I’ve directed myself. So I think there’s gonna be a lot of pressure there, but what we’re going to try to do is just focus on the work, like we always do. Really try to go step by step and try to quiet everything else around us, really focus on trying to make something that has some type of meaning.”

What will that be? Well, you’re just going to have to wait and see, man! I can’t have all the answers!
