Project Casting

During the Cannes Film Festival, Ryan Coogler discussed a particular scene in Black Panther that was really special to him.

 It’s when “T’Challa is out of the movie and you’re just following the women,” he said. “That’s one of my favorite parts of the movie when I watched it, and I didn’t expect that.” The Creed director continued, “That part of the movie you feel like you’re watching something fresh and new. That part of it was exciting. We have these actresses who could easily carry their own movie… I would watch a movie with them!”

Could this be a potential Black Panther spinoff?

Would he ever do a spinoff with the ladies of Black Panther? “Oh man,” Coogler said. “That would be amazing if the opportunity came up. They did it in the comic-book version.” (Via)

Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, is ready to head back to Wakanda. Tweeting, “Ready big bro”.
