"Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that", Feige said when asked about the studio's plans for a Black Panther sequel.

For years, the Holy Grail (or at least a Holy Grail; we're nerds, we can have multiple grails) of Marvel movie fandom was the notion that Sony Pictures would hand the rights to Spider-Man back over to Marvel Studios so that Peter Parker could finally stand alongside Tony Stark on the big screen. ― a "Black Panther" sequel is certain. While there is no concrete information regarding the second Black Panther film, the producer does reveal that the studio has "ideas and a pretty solid direction" for the next instalment in the intended series.

Feige has the manner of someone who just placed a rather large bet and won; Black Panther had a larger budget than comparable Marvel films and Wakanda itself will be one of the major locations of the upcoming Infinity War.

Yesterday, Mallikarjun Kharge hit out at BJP claiming that Congress had worked hard in Meghalaya and secured more seats than BJP. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Northeast has rejected the "politics of hate" by "unanimously" voting the BJP to power.

"Infinity War" will be in theaters April 27. However, that means more Wakanda! Or a Shuri stand-alone film? Take a look at the ad below and see if you notice what I'm talking about. Feige explained. "All in on stuff we believe in, before the audience tells us what they think".

This bit of news comes as Black Panther has remarkably entered the Top 10 highest grossing films of all time, Box Office Mojo reports on Friday, Mar. 9 (And this total is for movies overall, not just Marvel or comic book-featured films). So we'll just have to be patient. Feige even hinted that "there are people we hired that we're not ready to announce in all different capacities, particularly behind the camera". Even with a 50-60% drop from last week's domestic weekend total, Black Panther could still bring in between $26.5 to $33 million; a similar performance on the worldwide market would net another $23.1 to $28.9 million.
