Also heading into the museum is a shooting script from the film signed by director Ryan Coogler, co-writer Joe Robert Cole, executive producer Nate Moore, and President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige.
One of the curators at the African American History Museum, Rhea Combs, praised the film’s characters and focus on the women of Wakanda. Combs said “It was also nice to see women in dynamic warrior roles, as well as adept in the sciences and technology. These are images many audiences have longed to see in mainstream films, but for too long haven’t.”
The Smithsonian’s first ever African American Film Festival will start October 24th and run through October 27th.
While we know that we are getting Black Panther 2 sometime in the future, we still don’t know if Ryan Coogler will return to direct the sequel. In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige had this to say regarding the status of Coogler and the film:
“We definitely want Ryan to come back and that’s actively being worked out right now. When will it be? A lot of it will be when Ryan wants to and not rushing anything, but I think we have an idea of when it will be. But, again, [we’re] not going to announce any post-Avengers 4 movies until hopefully after Avengers 4, which is another reason we’re not going to Comic-Con.”
