Black Panther 2's Ryan Coogler Writes Moving Letter Thanking Fans

Ryan Coogler, co-writer and director of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," writes an impassioned open letter to the movie's audience.
On Rotten Tomatoes, an aggregation of critics' opinions, the film has been given the designation Certified Fresh.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has received an 84 percent approval grade from reviewers and has made over $300 million at the domestic box office and roughly $561.7 million globally as of this writing.


Director Ryan Coogler has publicly thanked moviegoers and anyone who have helped spread the word about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. His letter was released by Marvel Studios.
He then expresses gratitude to the audience for bearing with the film's long running duration, its use of many languages, and its dark subject matter, all of which he acknowledges may have alienated some viewers.
Here is a copy of the open letter that Coogler wrote:


Given the personal connection that Coogler established with Chadwick Boseman, it's difficult to picture anybody else directing Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The choice to honor Boseman's off-screen death with T'Challa's demise was a strong indicator that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would be a fitting sequel to the first film.
Coogler's personal experience with losing Boseman served as inspiration for one of the film's central themes.
Just like he had hoped in his open letter, the movie was a great way to get his feelings out.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever benefited from Coogler's direction because to both his thematic understanding and his familiarity with the Creed movies' impressive combat choreography.

For Black Panther 3, will Coogler be back?

Given his work on Wakanda Forever, Marvel Studios will probably make an effort to have Coogler return for Black Panther 3.
The studio will want to draw on his capacity for emotional nuance, which he shown in the first two films, because Nakia and T'Challa's son Toussaint's grieving journeys haven't been explored to their full potential, despite their intimate link to the character.
They don't appear to have any issues with Coogler's directorial or creative vision, so it's doubtful that they'll make any major changes to the formula for the third feature if it gets the go-ahead.
It's not official yet, but Black Panther 3 might be in the works in the near future.


Coogler and his creative team surmounted significant obstacles to deliver a fitting homage in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
As a fan, it warms my heart to see that Coogler is willing to share even more of his vulnerable side with his supporters.
Coogler was the perfect choice for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and he is the right option for future sequels, as evidenced by his expressing thanks and acknowledging the movie's many difficulties.
