The Marvel film's director, Ryan Coogler, recently posted a letter to Twitter reflecting on his Marvel cinematic journey.

Congrats to the cast and Ryan Coogler, and as always, #WakandaForever.

Fans of the comics will no doubt know that Shuri did actually take on the Black Panther mantle temporarily whilst her brother was seriously injured in battle.

Marvel's Black Panther has taken Hollywood by storm, quickly catapulting itself to having the fifth largest domestic opening of all time. T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), is the new ruler of Wakanda, a hidden African nation that is rich in technology fueled by a powerful natural substance known as vibranium.

The character of Black Panther and others featured in the film will appear in the upcoming May release, Avengers: Infinity War. The film introduces us to the African nation of Wakanda for the first time after audiences were fed small hints about it in earlier Marvel films.

While speaking to Variety, Marvel president Kevin Feige spoke about the movie. While initial forecasts placed Black Panther at the top of the box office, the reality surpassed every prediction made as those forecasts updated throughout the weekend. He goes on to say that he wanted it to feel like a "fresh storyline", and that "it's meaty, it's different, and it's flawless for new readers just coming to the world of T'Challa and Black Panther". And it came back to that symmetry, and it came back to the most moving version of it. He said, "We were doing something that people had been waiting their entire lives to see", Feige explained when saw people standing and cheering - some even in tears - after they watched the tease. "Marvel just has the winning recipe and they're kind of one step ahead of everybody else", he said. We most likely won't see this story appear on the screen for a while now, but it is always something that could happen down the line. So, I guess, the question is: "when can we have Black Panther 2?" Black Panther could've easily used the U.N.as the finale, but returning to Oakland to see Wakanda's first outreach program gives fans more of an emotional attachment.
