Now Playing: The Black Panther Movie That Almost Happened!

The sequel to Black Panther will release on May 6, 2022, it has been announced. The date was revealed during D23, where Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige came out on stage, bringing with him the first movie's director, Ryan Coogler.

The pair noted that the sequel will not be called "Black Panther 2," but didn't say what it will be called. While the 2022 release date may seem far off, Coogler said that the the creative team wasn't just spinning its wheels, and was instead focused on making a worthy sequel.

"We're definitely not taking our time with this one," he said, "We just want it to be right."

D23 has been very fruitful for Marvel fans, we've already learned about more returning MCU characters in WandaVision's cast, the exciting reveal of Disney Plus's Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight shows, and got more details about the Loki and Falcon and Winter Soldier shows, and more.

Star Wars fans were also taken care of, as Disney confirmed that Ewan McGregor is returning to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, announced the release date for Star Wars Clone Wars Season 7, and revealed a Disney+ show starring very dead Rogue One characters.
