Coogler also addressed the possibilities of directing Black Panther 3 or Avengers: Secret Warssays that he “definitely [has] no idea what [he’s] do the next.” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige noted that there have been talks with the director about a Wakandan trequel, but not tackling the Multiversal blockbuster.

The director added how his focus right now is on the release of Wakanda forever, which he sees as his last commitment as a filmmaker. Coogler continued to dodge questions about his film future, but noted that he is watching “a little rest and family time” forward next:

“It’s really hard because you’re exhausted and emotionally drained and I try to give it all my full attention. After that I will find out what happens to me. But I think there will be some rest and family time.”

In a separate interview with Variety, Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore hinted at spin-offs by promising Wakanda forever will leave “more opportunities to return to Wakanda:”

“This world is expansive and there are so many great characters. Beyond what happens with this movie, there are more opportunities to go back to Wakanda.”

Moore teased that while “some ideas” for Disney+ spin-offs will involve existing characters from Black panther franchise, there are others “It would be brand new.” Although the producer avoided answering exactly how many spin-off projects are in development, he said, “there’s no shortage of ideas, let’s put it that way.”

Black Panther’s universe will finally expand… Finally

It is clear that Marvel Studios is actively pursuing more stories in Kingdom of Wakanda and from Ryan Coogler after Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. From what Nate Moore implied that it existed “no shortage of ideas,” there may even be more than just the previously reported two series going on.

Among these projects will likely be the Okoye project, which will presumably have other members of the Dora Milaje alongside her. But what other spin-offs Marvel Studios might consider is really anyone’s guess, especially with talk of bringing new Wakandan joints into the picture.

While Coogler will likely keep his focus on the Wakandan world, some steps outside of the African nation should still be on the cards for him. Just as he is currently producing Ironheart as a direct sequel to Black Panther 2perhaps a project starring Tenoch Huerta’s Namor could also be on the cards for him.

But with that Coogler has been concerned with Black Panther 2 and Ironheart, fans may be waiting a while for any of these spin-offs to come to fruition. This painful wait will only continue if the filmmaker follows through on his plan to take a well-deserved break alongside spending time with friends and family.

That is also the question of Black Panther 3to which it projected insane box office Wakanda forever making it almost certain to spawn a threequel. But this could be put on the back burner as these spin-offs take center stage, although the big screen may still appear across these shows.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever coming to cinemas on Friday 11 November.
