LOS ANGELES: Ryan Coogler is coming back to write and direct the sequel of his Marvel superhero feature "Black Panther".

Actor Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed T'Challa / Black Panther in Coogler's film, will reprise his role in the follow-up.

Marvel Studio have not yet made any announcement regarding the project but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the director will write the film next year and begin shooting it in late 2019 or early 2020.
