“Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler announced the release date of the much-anticipated follow-up film at D23 in Anaheim, Calif. Saturday.

“Black Panther 2” will hit theaters May 6, 2022.


Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said Coogler has delivered a treatment, complete with a villain and new title, though neither would give up those details.


“Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular superhero, was a massive success when it premiered in February 2018. It grossed $700 million domestically and $1.3 billion worldwide, becoming the second highest-grossing Marvel movie of all time domestically, behind “Avengers: Endgame.” It was also nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture — a first for a Marvel superhero movie — and took home three.
