Marvel introduced moviegoers to the world of Wakanda during the events of black panther, a fictional country that has since become an important location in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Due to the expansive world-building brought forth by Ryan Coogler and his team of filmmakers, Black panther franchise quickly became a fundamental building block of storytelling in the franchise, meaning it was inevitable that the property would get its own Disney+ at some point. While reports have suggested that a Kingdom of Wakanda series could follow Danai Gurira’s Okoye, Black panther Producer Nate Moore revealed in a recent interview that the show is not as far along as some would think.
“Because of the amount of time and attention that went into this movie, and honestly Ironheart show, it’s probably not as far along as people want it to be, but there are certainly great ideas that we’re still talking to Ryan about. So we’ll see how far we can take it,” Moore said in a recent chat with Collider.
Under his new first-look deal with Disney, Coogler and his Proximity Media banner serve as producers Ironheart. Due to the filmmaker’s increasingly busy schedule, Moore added that both he and Coogler are waiting to see the response to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before committing to a third film in the franchise.
“That’s a great question. To be honest, this is not me trying not to answer the question,” Moore continued. “We really want to see how audiences receive the film, and I think Ryan is very interested in seeing how the film plays out before we make a decision. There are certainly ideas we’ve been floating around about what a third film could be if we get it done. . But until the movie comes out, we’re a little superstitious that way. We don’t want to count our chickens, because you never know what’s going to happen.”
IN Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverQueen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. It is yet to be seen where the Midnight Angels tie into the story.
The film introduces Tenoch Huerta as Namor, the king of a hidden undersea nation, and also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens in theaters on November 11.
