Actress Letitia Wright seems to think a third “Black Panther” will eventually be on the way judging by her comments to Variety during the Official Digital Pre-Show at the Golden Globes last night.
In November last year, during press coverage for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige discussed the potential of a third chapter.
Coogler said he had “no idea what I’m doing next as a writer and director,” but Feige said the pair had already had ‘conversations’ about a third “Black Panther” and that “ideas [have been] pitched back and forth.”
Last night, Wright spoke with the trade’s chief correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister who asked when will a third “Black Panther” film be greenlit. She responded:
“I think it’s already in the works. You know, we just had a terrific two years of bringing it out and everybody coming together to support it.
We need a little bit of a break, we need to regroup, and [director] Ryan [Coogler] needs to get back into the lab, so it’s going to take a little while, but we’re really excited for you guys to see that.
I always try to do positive words and positive thinking, and I believe that good words manifest, so I’m manifesting a ‘Black Panther 3,’ why not?”
The comments come as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has made $831 million worldwide since its November 11th release and saw Angela Bassett win a Golden Globe last night for her performance – the first for a Marvel Studios feature.
