In the interview with Variety, Ryan Coogler was talking about how the director and his production company are not yet done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, when asked about the third installment of Black Panther, Coogler directly reverted by saying that there were no plans as of late for this as he is much more focused on getting the sequel released in the first place.

“It’s very difficult because you’re exhausted and emotionally spent, and I’m trying to give it all my full attention,” he had told them. “After that, I’ll figure out what’s going on with me. But I think it’s going to be some rest and family time.”

As for whether or not he would be directing Avengers: Secret Wars, the director completely denied having talked about it with Kevin Feige and stated that there had been no plans nor thoughts about him looking into the movie.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever On Handling Grief And Loss

For Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as well as the cast attached to the movie, grief, and loss has been a constant topic that even if they wanted to avoid, they would not be able to. The loss of their lead actor, but more than that, their brother and friend, their family, had put the entire cast in a state of sorrow and pain. For Ryan Coogler, it had been exceptionally difficult as even though many members of the cast had given themselves time to heal even remotely, he could not seem to find a break for himself at all.

“You know what I mean? I don’t know that that’s how it works. It’s an ongoing process. The process needs to change from time to time. I got a bad back, right? I could get the most comfortable, most ergonomic chair in the world. If I sit in it long enough, my back’s going to hurt. I have to get up and switch positions.”

The entire process of making the movie had been an entirely new experience for everyone because of how personal and important it had been. A way to continue and honor the legacy of an actor gone too soon was turning into a way for all of them to heal and come to terms with his passing.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be available to watch in theatres from 11th November 2022.
