‘Black Panther’ Sequel Gets 2022 Release Date

  • Deadline
Disney announced at the D23 Expo on Saturday that it has set May 6, 2022, as the release date for Black Panther 2. Director Ryan Coolger, who returns to helm and write the sequel to the No. 4-grossing film of all time in North America, revealed the news onstage at the Anaheim Convention Center alongside Marvel’s Kevin Feige.

Coogler’s return was confirmed in October as details of the sequel emerged after the original became a massive hit, grossing $1.35 billion at the worldwide box office. It’s No. 11 on the all-time list globally.

The success made a follow-up movie a given; Marvel usually signs its key cast to deals involving multiple movies because of the scope of its cinematic universe. Chadwick Boseman starred in the first pic along with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Latitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker and Sterling K. Brown.

Avengers: Endgame Directors Congratulate Black Panther For Oscar Wins

Though Avengers: Infinity War came home empty-handed from the 91st Academy Awards, co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo were still gracious enough to offer their congrats to Black Panther and the various people who worked to make it an Oscar-winner.

Triumphing in three out of its seven nominated categories, Ryan Coogler’s film not only provided Marvel Studios with its first Academy Awards, but also beat the record for most Oscars won by a single superhero movie. In recognition of these accomplishments, the Russo Brothers took to Twitter with a few kind words:

“Congratulations to our Marvel family @theblackpanther for taking home 3 Oscars last night. A massive applause to Ruth E. Carter, Hannah Beachler and our dear Community pal Ludwig Göransson.”

To break down these name-drops individually, Ruth E. Carter took the Oscar for Best Costume Design, Hannah Beachler and her colleague Jay Hart won for Best Production Design, and Ludwig

If Easier On Viewers, The 2019 Oscars Were Awfully Rough On Collaborators

If Easier On Viewers, The 2019 Oscars Were Awfully Rough On Collaborators
A minor note on Sunday’s much-discussed, host-free, wonderfully diverse Oscar ceremony: It was awfully rough on collaborators.

Time and again, the stage was filled with winners who smiled, nodded and got barely a word in edgewise, as a colleague sopped up the limelight.

Maybe there was a designated speaker rule. But if so, not everyone honored it. The sound mixers for Bohemian Rhapsody — Paul Massey, Tim Cavagin and John Casali — did the old-style Three Musketeers thing, for instance, each taking a few seconds to thank family, friends and colleagues. The Green Book team similarly spread their time among three speakers.

But those were rare birds on a night when several winning teams had a member who turned out to be considerably more equal than the others, never mind those old saws about film being the most collaborative of arts.

'Black Panther' scores three historic Oscars

Triumph for African American talent, Marvel Studios

On a momentous night for racial diversity, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther made history with a trio of Oscars, two of which struck a blow for African Americans.

Both production designer Hannah Beachler and costume designer Ruth E. Carter became the first African Americans to win in their respective categories. In the case of Beachler, she was also the first African American to be nominated for her category.

According to The New York Times, the women also became the first African Americans to win in non-acting categories since songwriter Irene Cara shared the original song Oscar for ‘Flashdance

Oscar Poll: What Was Your Favorite Acceptance Speech?
At Sunday's 91st Academy Awards, some went home with their first Oscars, others made history by winning and nearly every everyone was awestruck when they took the stage to accept their award. 

Hannah Beachler, for example, was overcome with emotion when she and Jay Hart won for best costume design for their work on Black Panther. Beachler became the first African-American to be nominated for, and then win, the category. Onstage, she thanked the film's director, Ryan Coogler: "I stand here stronger than I was yesterday. I stand here with agency and self-worth because of Ryan Coogler. You not ...

Black Panther Wins Marvel Studios' First Oscars

Marvel Studios has finally broken its losing streak at the Oscars. Black Panther was nominated for seven awards at the 91st annual Academy Awards and, in a surprising start to this year's ceremony, Marvel's record-breaking blockbuster took home two awards in the Best Costume Design and Best Production Design categories to start off the ceremony. It would also go onto win Best Original Music Score for Ludwig Goransson, winning three of the six Oscars it was vying for throughout the night. This further cements director Ryan Coogler's comic book adaptation as one for the ages.

Black Panther was also up for Best Picture Oscar in addition to Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing. But it did not secure wins in those categories, losing out for Best Picture to The Green Book, which was perhaps the most controversial win of the night, as many felt that film was

Oscars 2019: ‘Black Panther’ Celebrates Breakthrough, Inclusionary Crafts Wins
It was a crafts celebration at the 91st Academy Awards Sunday night, marked by the wonders of “Black Panther’s” Wakanda and “Bohemian Rhapsody’s” nostalgic rock trip.

Black Panther” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” shared the night with three craft Oscars apiece. The McU struck Oscar gold for the first time with its superhero phenomenon, taking production design (designer Hannah Beachler and art director Jay Hart ), costume design (designer Ruth Carter), and score (composer Ludwig Göransson).

And the popular Freddie Mercury biopic (starring Oscar winner Rami Malek) offered a powerful, arena-like cinematic experience, snagging awards for editor John Ottman (going without a director in post-production) in tandem with the sound editing and mixing teams.

But for Beachler and Carter (previously nominated for “Amistad” and “Malcolm X”), it was a significant diversity breakthrough, as they became the first blacks to win in their respective crafts. They helped director Ryan Coogler achieve his

Women Have Winningest Night in Oscar History: A Record 15 Winners
Women roared at the 91st Academy Awards on Sunday, picking up a record 15 trophies — the most in Oscar history. With 39 male winners this year, that means women earned nearly 27.8 percent of the statuettes handed out.

The previous record came in both 2007 and 2015, when women earned a total of 12 statuettes, including for the two actress categories.

And it comes after just six women earned Oscars at last year’s ceremony, compared with 33 male winners. That’s little more than 15 percent. It was the lowest number of female winners since 2012’s show (the 85th annual Academy Awards), when only four women brought home statuettes.

91st Annual Academy Awards Live Results & List Of Winners

The 91st Annual Academy Awards are finally here, and who knows how they’re going to play out? Ironically like many of the films it’ll be honoring, the yearlong buildup and campaign for the event has been plagued by backstage controversies – with the hiring and prompt resignation of would-be Mc Kevin Hart to the debacles concerning its runtime, it looks like the host-less Oscars won’t be giving out jet skis for shortest acceptance speech this year.

With that in mind, the purpose of the Academy Awards is to celebrate 2018’s greatest movies; and following the trend of the show’s last several seasons, this year’s nominees are in themselves historic, not only for their diversity, but also for the genres and studios that they represent.

Kevin Feige Reacts To Black Panther’s Best Picture Oscar Nod

After the extraordinary year that Black Panther just had, Ryan Coogler’s latest feature didn’t need any Oscar recognition to secure its status as a pop culture phenomenon, but as Michael B. Jordan said back in November, landing a Best Picture nomination is still some “amazing icing on the cake” for one of 2018’s biggest movies.

Speaking to the New York Times, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige admitted to setting his alarm to watch this morning’s nominations, and the early start was surely worth it. Among the seven nominations that Black Panther received was a prestigious Best Picture nod, making T’Challa’s solo debut the first comic book movie to earn an Academy Award nomination in this category.

In response to the news, Fegie says he feels “a sense of pride and humility and immense gratitude,” and while Coogler missed out on both the writing and directing slots,
