Ryan Coogler, coming off of directing the very successful movie Creed, cannot contain his excitement now that he has just been named the director for Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther movie, as reported by ComicBook.com.
“I’m excited. I grew very into pop culture, very into comic books, so it’s something that is just as personal to me as the last couple of films I was able to make,” Coogler told HeyUGuys. “I feel really fortunate to be able to work on something I’m this passionate about again.”
According to Coogler, work on the film is beginning very soon. Coogler will be directing Chadwick Boseman in the title role. Boseman will make his first appearance as the character in Captain America: Civil War.
Black Panther is scheduled to hit theaters on February 16, 2018.
