Black Panther 3 Already in Production?

In the Golden Globe Awards red-carpet interview with Variety, Black Panther 2 star Letitia Wright discussed the threequel of the Black Panther movie and when asked about when the audience can expect it, she said,

“I think it’s already in the works, You know, we just had a terrific two years of just bringing it out and everybody coming together to support it. We need a little bit of a break, we need to regroup, and [director] Ryan [Coogler] needs to get back into the lab, so it’s going to take a while, but really excited for you guys to see that.

In 2022’s cover story for Variety of Black Panther 2, director Ryan Coogler and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige had a brief conversation about a potential third movie, and Kevin Feige at that time stated that ideas were shared back and forth between the two.

While everyone is excited about the news of Black Panther 3, Angela Bassett playing the role of Queen Ramoda, Tsuri’s mother in the movie was awarded Golden Globe Award for best supporting actress in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”. She  became the first performer to win a Globe in an acting category for their role in a Marvel film.

Marvel’s Take on Black Panther 3

Well, though Black Panther 3 has not been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, since Letitia Wright commented about its production, it may very well be true as the actors would know best about their respective movies.

Wakanda Forever executive producer Nate Moore said that there are certain ideas for a third movie floating around. Whether it will happen or not entirely depends on how the audience receives the second movie. From the looks of it, the second movie has done extremely well, with the box office estimated at roughly over eight hundred million dollars.

Marvel Studios smartly ended Wakanda Forever with “Black Panther will return” which leaves countless possibilities about where and when the third movie will end up in the timeline. Kevin Feige has stated in the past that he wouldn’t want to work on Black Panther movies without Ryan Coogler. And it is rumored that Coogler has not only been in “conversations” but was also expected to be in direct talks about Secret Wars which may indicate the involvement of Black Panther in the scenes.
