Though Feige did not provide any further details about the sequel or what it might be about, he did tease Marvel already has a few story ideas and a "solid direction" for Black Panther 2.

Black Panther has been breaking box office records, and is inspiring what seems like nearly everyone to go see a movie that's based on a comic book. Feige was tight-lipped about any specifics, including a release date or cast announcements, but he did confirm that the sequel is in the works.

Additionally, Feige seemed pretty positive about the idea of having spin-off movies for other central Black Panther characters like Shuri or the Dora Milaje, although he hedged that by saying they wouldn't want to burn out fans and those movies aren't really on the team's radar at the moment. This was not his first appearance on the big screen, however; Black Panther first appeared in Captain America: Civil War aligned with the Cap.

In a new interview with BBC Radio 1 - following his fiery BRITs performance - host Clara Amfo asked Kendrick about the possibility of landing a cameo role in the next Black Panther flick. "Anchor point is a good way of [describing] it, particularly as some of our other anchor points, Asgard for instance, are gone", Feige said. Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, and Danai Gurira also star in the film, which was directed by Ryan Coogler based on a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole. "It's a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much", he said. While this isn't surprising news, it is exciting to know that we'll be able to see even more of Wakanda in the future. Take a look at the ad below and see if you notice what I'm talking about.

Black cats have all different types of personalities, and anyone who adopts one is doing a great deed, so we applaud them.

The early numbers reinforce predictions that Black Panther could enjoy a $60M opening weekend in China and go on to exceed $100M. So we'll just have to be patient.
