BLACK PANTHER Director to Develop Wakanda Series For Disney+

BLACK PANTHER director Ryan Coogler has been busy re-working his script for BLACK PANTHER 2 since the unfortunate passing of leading actor Chadwick Boseman. But that's not the only thing Coogler will be been working on for Marvel Studios.

Deadline is reporting that the director is also developing a new show for Disney+ focusing on Wakanda.

“'Ryan Coogler is a singular storyteller whose vision and range have made him one of the standout filmmakers of his generation,' said Bob Iger, Executive Chairman, The Walt Disney Company. 'With Black Panther, Ryan brought a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life in a real, meaningful and memorable way, creating a watershed cultural moment. We’re thrilled to strengthen our relationship and look forward to telling more great stories with Ryan and his team.'

"Said Coogler: 'It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share,” stated Ryan Coogler on behalf of Proximity Media.'"
