I’m guessing this will be no major surprise to anyone, but Letitia Wright confirms there’s a Black Panther 3 in development. However, the actress did also warn it may take a while to get up and running. Wright spoke to Variety at the Golden Globes awards where Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was nominated for some awards and her co-star Angela Basset won one.
Variety asked Wright whether we would be getting a Black Panther 3? Wright’s reply;
“I think it’s already in the works. It’s gonna take a while, but really excited for you guys to see that.”
As said above, I don’t think anyone would be surprised there is a Black Panther 3 in development. However right now it feels like that story may be one that comes after the Multiverse Saga has concluded? There appears to be no room for a threequel to Black Panther in the slate prior to Avengers: Secret Wars.
That being said, if Marvel got a team together and a script idea fairly quickly, they could pull it off. I just don’t think that’s the approach Marvel will take with this franchise.
I’ve still to catch Wakanda Forever. I missed my chance at theatres and am now awaiting the Disney+ debut on February the 1st. So far I have heard it’s a pretty good movie, so hopefully I will feel the same.
Whatever happens next in Wakanda I’m sure is something Marvel Studios are already planning out. One would assume they would wish to have Ryan Coogler return to close out this trilogy of movies, however who knows?
What do you think of the news Letitia Wright confirms Black Panther 3 is in the works, just not any time soon? Was this obvious, what are your hopes for a third movie? Thoughts below as always.
