Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler Open to Female-Led Spinoff

Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler Open to Female-Led Spinoff

At the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, filmmaker Ryan Coogler reflected on the historic sensation of "Black Panther" while also revealing the crisis he went through upon turning 30, previously fearing death was never far behind.

"Oh man, that would be incredible if the opportunity ever came up", he gushed during a recent talk at the Cannes Film Festival. "They did it in the comic-book version", Coogler said.

While the Black Panther fever began fading in the wake of Avengers: Infinity War, the fans got some more of culturally rich Wakanda which acted as a battle field in the Avengers movie.

Black Panther's special features include some in-depth featurette videos, most notably a lengthy conversation between numerous minds behind Black Panther-the movie, as well as the original and contemporary comics.

Wright-who plays Shuri, the bad-ass and brilliant younger sister of King T'Challa-signaled she was all about the idea by adorably tweeting, "Ready big bro".

"That part of the movie you feel like youre watching something fresh and new. That part of it was exciting", Coogler shared. His mother had a wide-ranging love for and knowledge about films - "My mom was like IMDB before there was IMDB", he said with a laugh - while his father preferred action movies, from the Rocky films to Steven Seagal movies.

Noting that Hollywood theories can't be challenged "if you don't have anything that disproves it", Coogler said in a conversation on stage that he hopes "Black Panther" is the groundbreaking force many say it is, disproving the old myths that black films "don't travel overseas". For him, his favorite part of Black Panther involved the women after T'Challa disappears for a portion of the movie. "[These actresses] could easily carry their own movie". "I would watch a movie with them!"
