'We're not taking our time, we're really trying to get it right, ' Coogler said, according to Variety. Marvel chief Kevin Feige took the stage at an event on Saturday to share the exciting news. It grossed $700 million domestically and $1.3 billion worldwide, becoming the second highest grossing Marvel movie of all time domestically, behind "Avengers: Endgame".

In 2018, Black Panther released and helped add diversity to the superhero genre.

The film also made history with its almost all-black cast. "Black Panther" was set shortly after "Captain America: Civil War" with T'Challa returning home to the secret African nation of Wakanda to become king.
