After the unbelievable critical and commercial success of Marvel Studios’ most recent superhero movie Black Panther, it was quite an obvious thing that a Black Panther sequel would get an approval. Still, in the scenario of there being any residual doubt, fans can now rest easy, as Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios has now officially stated that the movie’s sequel is on the horizon and they have been discussing about the possible direction for the film.

“Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that,” Feige informed Entertainment Weekly in response to a  question about when would he reveal his Black Panther sequel plans. “One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.”

So far, we had been expecting a Black Panther sequel, but, it was not certain. Although, Feige has now stated on record about his desire to once again bring back Ryan Coogler to direct the movie if it gets going.

Black Panther has already earned more than $500 million in North America, and it is now placed among the top ten highest earning films ever at the US box office. The film continues shattering box office records after it released last month, and has already grossed $897 million in less than a month. It is strongly moving forward towards a mighty $1 billion globally.

Black Panther has also received a lot of critical acclaim, and that has improved its box office earnings. The movie enjoys a superb 97 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it the highest rated MCU film to date. All these feats have already ensured that Disney has started planning for an Oscar campaign for the movie, including a pitch for the Best Picture Award. In case Black Panther gets nominated, it would be the first time that a superhero film gets to do that.

Black Panther is currently running in theaters and it stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Winston Duke as M’Baku and Forest Whitaker as Zuri.
