According to The Hollywood Reporter, the highly anticipated feature will begin production in July 2021. The city of Atlanta will host the tentatively titled film ‘Black Panther 2‘. The Marvel Studios shoot could last up to six months under the direction of Ryan Coogler. Ryan’s initial feature as a director came with the of the Fruitvale Station film. 

He spoke to Rolling Stone about how he took inspiration from that trip when developing Black Panther, such as the following memory of his that sounds awfully like the fictional African nation:

“In the diaspora, the Africa we tend to hear about is this fantasy place. Because it’s hard to tell a child about slavery – it’s so dire and so awful that you kind of has to balance it with something. So we get this fairy-tale version of Africa. ‘We were kings and queens, and we walked around and ate perfect food, and everyone was free.’ It becomes a kind of like Wakanda.”
