Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Coogler's creative brain trust includes his frequent collaborators: director of photography Rachel Morrison, A.S.C. ("Dope," "Fruitvale Station"), production designer Hannah Beachler ("Creed," "Fruitvale Station"), editors Claudia Castello ("Creed," "Fruitvale Station") and Michael P. Shawver ("Creed," "Fruitvale Station"); along with costume designer Ruth E.

  • 7th October 2016 - Forest Whitaker Joins Cast
    Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ "Black Panther." The film, directed by Ryan Coogler ("Fruitvale Station," "Creed"), has also added Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba to an all-star lineup that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, ruler of Wakanda, and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, plus Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and Danai Gurira as Okoye, members of the fierce Dora Milaje.

    Whitaker ("Roots," Lee Daniels’ "The Butler," "The Last King of Scotland") will play the role of Zuri, an elder stateman in Wakanda. Whitaker appears in this year’s "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" as fringe Rebel leader Saw Gerrera, and he’ll be seen in "The Forgiven" as famed activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Head of the Turth and Reconciliation Commission in post-apartheid South Africa.

    Kasumba will reprise her "Captain America: Civil War" role as Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje. Kaluuya ("Skins," "Black Mirror," "Sicario") will play T’Challa confidant W’Kabi. Duke ("Person of Interest") will appear as M’Baku, leader of a rival tribe in Wakanda.

    “Person of Interest” actor Winston Duke has landed the key role of the villain M’Baku — aka Man-Ape — in Marvel’s upcoming “Black Panther” film starring Chadwick Boseman.

    Marvel declined to comment.

    The film, directed by “Creed” helmer Ryan Coogler, also stars Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong’o. Boseman will play T’Challa, the prince of the African nation of Wakanda, who must take over the mantel after his father’s murder. Marvel unveiled the character in “Captain America: Civil War” before the standalone film bows on Feb. 16, 2018.

    In the comics, M’Baku was one of Wakanda’s most powerful warriors and one of T’Challa’s biggest rivals.

    Joe Robert Cole is co-penning the script with Coogler. Kevin Feige is producing the movie.

  • 14th May 2016 - Michael B. Jordan Joins Cast
    Michael B Jordan will reteam with his Creed director Ryan Coogler for Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, inking a deal to join movie's buzzy cast, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    This would be the third time that Jordan will work with Coogler, who is helming the comic book movie as well as writing the script. The first time the duo came together was for the indie drama Fruitvale Station.

    Chadwick Boseman is toplining Black Panther while Lupita Nyong’o is in negotiations to star alongside him.

    It is unclear who Jordan would play but one source told THR that it could be a villain. Marvel had no comment.

  • 12th May 2016 - Lupita Nyong'o in Talks to Star
    Lupita Nyong'o, who won an Oscar for her performance in 12 Years a Slave, is in negotiations to star opposite Chadwick Boseman in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther.

    Ryan Coogler, who wrote and directed Creed, is helming the comic book movie as well as writing the script.

    Boseman and Black Panther were introduced in Captain America: Civil War, which crossed the $700 million worldwide mark in under a week and a half.

    The character, whose name is T’Challa, is the warrior king of Wakanda, Marvel’s fictional African nation that is rich in an unbreakable alloy called vibranium.

    N’yongo’s character has not been revealed although she will be the Panther’s love interest.

  • 12th January 2016 - Ryan Coogler Officially Confirmed to Direct
    It’s official, Marvelites: Ryan Coogler will step up to direct Marvel’s “Black Panther,” in theaters February 16, 2018!

    Chadwick Boseman will star in “Black Panther” after debuting as the character in the upcoming Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6.

    “We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family,” said producer Kevin Feige. “The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.”

    Coogler wrote and directed his first award-winning feature film, “Fruitvale Station,” in 2013. Most recently he directed the critically-acclaimed “Creed,” which earned Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

    Black Panther has been an important character in the Marvel universe for 50 years. He is the king of the technologically-advanced nation of Wakanda, and Panther has served as a member of the Avengers in addition to his many solo adventures.

  • 5th December 2015 - Creed Director, Ryan Coogler, in Talks to Direct
    Ryan Coogler, the director who is coming off of the surprisingly strong opening of Creed, is in negotiations to direct Black Panther, Marvel Studio’s movie featuring the first black superhero.

    Coogler's latest film, starring Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed's son Adonis, earned strong reviews and a big $29.6 million in its debut. Coogler first made a name for himself with 2013's Fruitvale Station, which stars Jordan as Oscar Grant, a Bay Area resident who, unarmed and handcuffed, was fatally shot by BART Police officer.

    He's quickly becoming one of Hollywood's hottest young directors after catching everyone's eye with Fruitvale and then pulling off Creed, a Rocky movie for whom many had low expectations.

  • 7th October 2015 - Joe Robert Cole Nearing Deal to Write the Script
    Joe Robert Cole is nearing a deal to write “Black Panther” for Marvel, TheWrap has exclusively learned.

    Marvel had no comment.

    Marvel’s Kevin Feige is set to produce “Black Panther,” which will star Chadwick Boseman (“Get On Up”) as T’Challa, aka the titular superhero from Wakanda. Andy Serkis is also expected to reprise his role of Ulysses Klaw from “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” though his involvement remains unconfirmed.

    There are no directors in contention at this stage, as Marvel will wait for the script to be finished

  • 4th July 2015 - Ava DuVernay Passes on Directing Movie

    "We just didn't see eye to eye," DuVernay told Essence Magazine.

    "I'm not signing on to direct Black Panther," said DuVernay during the Essence festival . "I think I'll just say we had different ideas about what the story would be. Marvel has a certain way of doing things, and I think they're fantastic and a lot of people love what they do. I loved that they reached out to me."

    Chadwick Boseman is attached to the project to play T'Challa, the Black superhero who rules the nation of Wakanda. Although DuVernay exclaimed she loved the characters, she didn't agree with Marvel's vision.

    "I loved meeting Chadwick and the writers and all the Marvel execs," said DuVernay. "In the end, it comes down to story and we just didn't see eye to eye. Better for me to realize that now than cite creative differences later."


  • 13th May 2015 - Selma's Ava DuVernay tipped to direct Marvel's Black Panther
    Ava DuVernay, the director of acclaimed civil-rights drama Selma, is being courted by Marvel to take charge of a high-profile superhero movie. The Wrap reports DuVernay is being lined up for either Black Panther, the company’s first attempt at a film headlined by an African American comic-book titan, or Captain Marvel, expected to be the studio’s first female-fronted superhero epic.

    Black Panther, which will debut in July 2018, is the most likely project, according to the respected Hollywood trade site’s sources. The print version, the first black superhero in mainstream comics, is the superpowered ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. He is considered a genius – one of the eight cleverest people on Earth – and has access to vast financial resources, thanks to his nation’s huge reserves of the fictional substance Vibranium.

  • 9th February 2015 - Marvel Studios Schedules New Release Dates For 4 Films
